MAYBE THE MOST PATHETIC REPLAY REVIEW EVER
Instead, it was waved off by replay which insisted there was a distinct kicking motion by Briere after his initial shot hit the post and caromed back out.
Briere wasn't even looking at the puck when the supposed kicking motion happened, was being checked from behind and was in mid celebration.
But, somehow, much like the single-bullet theory, the geniuses in the Toronto war room where video replay decisions are made, determined Briere was adroit enough to still knowingly kick the puck into the net.
If the Isles come back and tie, or win this one, part of the blame is going on the league for employing dunces in such important official positions.
