Would definately make it easier to see if the puck is truely over or not if you could actually see the line
The yellow line in football means nothing officially, it is only for TV purposes to make the viewing experience more enjoyable at home, hence it is not always accurate. First downs are decided by the chain gang on the field only.
The conspiracy theorists on this call are a joke. Get over it people. Just because we all thought it was a goal as Pens fans doesn't make it a goal officially. It was a close call and it went against us, and I frankly was not very surprised at all at the time since it was a very close and somewhat difficult call. Its happened before and it will happen again. Thats the way this league operates. They reviewed it for a long time obviously trying to make the correct decision. From the still picture afterwards it seems to be the wrong conclusion, but they didn't have acess to to that when it happened. There's no conspiracy to extend the series for NBC or to try and make it more competitive. We won anyways so there's really no reason to cry so much about it either.
Just enjoy the fact we are 2 wins from making it to the finals.
