Alex and Steve

The Islanders once again fell victim to the stupidity of the National Hockey League and its officials in game 4 of the series against Buffalo.  With the score 3-2 with under two minutes remaining in the third period the Islanders were desperatley fighting for a goal.  Some good work by the Yashin line lead to a scramble in front of the net.  With the puck sitting loose between Ryan Miller's legs, Brendan Witt sped to the puck and knocked it into the goal.  The Nasssau Coliseum crowd was on its feet as it appeared to be a tie game.  Refferee Mike Leggo, however, had different thoughts completely.  Leggo waived off the goal to the dismay of Islanders' fans.  The call was reviewed in Toronto, but was supposedly left for Leggo to make the final decision.  Leggo signaled no goal to the absolute shock of the hockey world.  Once again, beer bottles fell from the upper levels to the ice of the Nassau Coliseum.  Once again the Islanders got screwed over by the officials and the NHL review crew in Toronto.  Leggo stated that it was not a goal because of goaltender interference.  It wasn't until after the puck was in the net, however, that Miroslav Satan fell on top of Ryan Miller.  Neither the NHL nor Leggo has yet admitted their mistakes, but it seems pretty obvious to me that somebody has it out for the Isles.  Usually, I am the last one to be a conspiracy theorist, but time and time again this year the Islanders have been beaten on bad video reviews or on-ice-calls.  Ted Nolan and the rest of the guys voiced their displeasure with the call in their post game press conferences.  The NHL has not yet released any kind of statement about the call, but they had better own up to the blatant mistakes of their officials.
