WHL Addressing Glove Pass Goal?

lamb-interviewMark Lamb

Two weeks after a blown call in overtime cost the Swift Current Broncos an overtime playoff game, there is some indication changes could be coming to how goals are reviewed.

During game 4 of the first round series between the Broncos and the Calgary Hitmen, Victor Rask scored after a glove pass from Brooks Macek to beat Swift Current 1-0 in overtime and take a commanding 3-1 lead in a series that Calgary would close out in game 5.

Broncos Coach and General Manager Mark Lamb discussed the goal and the aftermath while appearing on Home Hardware's Overtime this Monday on The Eagle 94.1 FM.

Mark Lamb state of the Broncos interview"They have to deal with that and they're going to deal with it," Lamb said. "It was one of the worst things that's ever happened in hockey... not just in our league. When you're in overtime and there's a glove pass and there's an overtime goal it's devastating to the franchise. They're going to acknowledge it and there's going to be some changes."

Lamb is confident the league will address the issue so it doesn't happen to anyone else again.

"It's been talked about already this is nothing new... it's just nothing has happened exactly like that. It was totally a glove pass, it was totally their mistake and they all missed it for whatever reason."

Outside of the controversial loss, Lamb still felt the Broncos could have accomplished more than they did.

"I think we left something on the table in playoffs," he added. "I think we missed an opportunity. You never know when you're going to win, you never know how good your team really is. I think at the end we were a really good team. Not a team to make the playoffs, but a team that missed an opportunity to move on."

Lamb felt they were maybe ahead of schedule in their rebuilding plans, but there are too many unknowns for him to make any concrete predictions about next season. He did note their goal will again be to make the playoffs and go from there.
