Give me a break!

TORONTO -- Colin Campbell says he's almost as upset as the Pittsburgh Penguins over a missed offside call that led to a goal in Wednesday's playoff opener with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The NHL's senior executive vice-president of hockey operations acknowledges that linesman Tony Sericolo erred in not whistling the play dead prior to Danny Briere's goal early in the second period.

The Flyers forward was sent in on a breakaway off a long pass from teammate Brayden Schenn that came immediately after a turnover in the neutral zone.

Campbell believes that Sericolo was in position to make the right call but thinks the quick turnaround affected his view of the play.

Briere's goal was the first for Philadelphia as it erased a three-goal deficit and beat Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime. After the game, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said the blown call wasn't responsible for his team losing the game.

Campbell says the incident could affect how director of officiating Terry Gregson handles staffing assignments moving forward.

I would say it's even after the missed icing call on the Pens 3rd goal.

I'm a closet Flyers fan and I can't give you a break on this one, that goal was offside by a foot let alone inches.

This is pretty damn amazing actually. The NHL is actually admitting the guys in stripes suck! And all it took was the Pens losing a playoff game.

If the NHL was ever going to bash their own refs for the mistakes they make, you just knew it was going to be when they screwed up against the Penguins.

That pretty much says it all for me. The play was offside, but not the reason they lost the game. That was a team effort, or lack of on the Pens side.

The NHL can bitch all they want, though if the Pens won the game this would have been a non-issue.

An oops is an oops, but yeah, this point is hard to ignore with all the talk of Crosby being the League's golden boy.
