During the Dallas Stars vs. Vancouver Canucks game, an apparent second-period goal by Henrik Sedin was called off by the referee. The reason was that the ref felt that Henrik’s brother Daniel had interfered with the Stars’ goalie just prior to Henrik shooting the puck, thus not giving the goalie a chance to make the save.
Needless to say, Twitter exploded with conspiracy theories and charges of bias against our Vancouver Canucks. Speaking of exploding, first-year Canucks coach John Tortorella was extremely animated at the bench in voicing his displeasure – likely the most heated we’ve seen him in his 6 months here. Given the reputation that preceded him, I was actually surprised that it took this long for a famous Torts blow-up.
Thus, I snapped a quick picture on my phone from the TV and posted it on Twitter from my @CanuckClay account.
Finally! Angry Torts has arrived! pic.twitter.com/QJfGs6tjce
