Live by the Whistle, Die by the Whistle

A minute into the second period of Game 6 the Predators appeared to take the lead on a goal from Colton Sissons. Referee Kevin Pollock immediately waved off the goal. Screened by Matt Murray, Pollock never saw the puck sitting free in the crease. The call infuriated the Predators and rightly so, but it should not take away from what the Penguins accomplished on Sunday night in Nashville. Deadlocked in a scoreless tie early in the second period of last night’s Game 6 it was becoming apparent that whoever scored the first goal was going to have a huge upper hand going forward. At 1:07 of...
