KAMLOOPS — Two days after being knocked out in Game 6 against Kelowna, the Blazers are still feeling a bit sour about the waved-off goal, called back on a high-stick in third period with Kamloops down 2-0.
Connor Ingram said after the game he wasn't surprised by the call, believing the Rockets always gets the benefit of the doubt.
Now Blazers GM Stu MacGregor is in the process of sending a package off to the Western Hockey League to get clarification on the no-goal the team feels should've counted.
"I'm working on that at the moment," said MacGregor. "It's not going to change the result, but I'm in communication with the league to further gain information with that situation."
But despite the controversial call, MacGregor recognizes that by going down 2-0 to the Rockets, the team put itself in a precarious situation, needing the call to go its way.
"We put ourselves in that situation where a difficult call, or a situation that develops could go negatively against you. We put ourselves in a position as a team that it would adversely affect us, and obviously a call like that did affect us," said MacGregor.
