Just copied and pasted this from the game recap ( forgive us ). But we figured it deserved its own post.
Anyone have video of it?
Here is what happened:
Five minutes into the third period, Pens take a penalty.
Root Sports goes to a commercial, all of sudden the next thing everyone sees is MAF skating to the corner, and the score flip to 2-1 Wings.
ROOT sports missed the goal.
Here is why... they don't know the rules.
PER NHL RULES:
Television timeouts are taken at the first stoppage of play after 6, 10, and 14 minutes of elapsed time unless there is a power play or the first stoppage is the result of a goal scored. In these cases, the timeout will occur at the first stoppage after the penalty expires or the next stoppage after the goal, respectively
Some other thoughts:
We've seen the word discretionary thrown around as well.
If anyone knows anything differently let us know. ROOT sports needs to address this, but they won't.
It is funny on the NHL highlights the mistake doesn't appear.
Any missed goal is 100% unacceptable.
It can't happen. ROOT Sports gets off the hook for every mistake they make because they are the only broadcast in town.
So really, they won't learn. We've accepted that, it is a joke, but we've accepted it.
You can't miss goals though. Embarrassing.
