EL SEGUNDO, CA — Generally speaking, professional hockey players don’t get to go on vacation until spring or summer, when their season ends, except during an Olympic year, when National Hockey League players who are not playing for their national teams get some time off during the Games. But the season continues for the rest of the professional leagues in North America during the Olympic break, and that is exactly what is happening during the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

LA Kings Get The Shaft On Disputed Goal That Should Have Been Reviewable Years Ago

COMMENTARY/ANALYSIS: The Los Angeles Kings had a likely victory snatched from them by on-ice officials in Detroit on January 18, when video replay showed that a Detroit goal should not have been allowed. Was the right call made? Should the goal have been reviewable? What’s next?

LOS ANGELES — On January 18, forward Jeff Carter scored a power play goal at 17:45 of the third period to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings

At least, that is probably the way the lead for a recap of this game should have read. Instead, the Red Wings pulled out a 3-2 shootout victory after the officials allowed a goal at 19:33 of the third period by Detroit’s Niklas Kronwall that never should have counted.

On that highly controversial play, Kronwall got the puck at the top of the slot and fired a slapshot that deflected off of Kings center Jarret Stoll’s stick. The puck ricocheted high into the air, hitting near the top of the protective netting behind the Kings net. It then dropped, bounced off of Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick’s back, and wound up in the net.

At that point, referee Rob Martell pointed to the net, indicating that a goal had been scored.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — With the Los Angeles Kings mired in a five-game losing streak, one would think that the team would not be too upbeat during practice. Nevertheless, the atmosphere was light and high-spirited at their practice facility in El Segundo, California on January 3.

Perhaps the reasons for the smiles and laughs was that star goaltender Jonathan Quick is very close to returning to action after suffering a grade 2 groin strain, a partial tear, on November 12, in Buffalo.

“I’m feeling good,” said Quick. “I think the next step is getting some game action. I think that would be the next step, so it’s up to the coaches and trainers to see when they want me to take that next step.”
