At 6:20 of the 2nd period in the Predators/Flames game the referee blew the play dead during a scrum in the Nashville goal crease area. The issue of whether the puck crossed the line or not was not subject to video review because the referee, citing rule 69 of the rule book, deemed that Calgary Flames forward Tom Kostopoulos interfered with Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne, impeding him from making a save .
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
