This TSN Documentary examines the passion for the game of Hockey in Canada & the notion that perhaps the NHL is deliberately keeping Canadian teams out of its exclusive club.
This game was ended at the 41 second mark after Nelson Emerson of the Winnipeg Jets, Catches a puck in mid-air on a puck clearing by Chicago Blackhawk goaltender Ed Belfour, and threw the puck into the net. In any case, the goal should have been disallowed and a Penalty should have been called against Emerson however; Because the Winnipeg Jets are the most beloved Professional Sports team All-Time; The Goal was allowed! This decision was made even after a “Video Review” was conducted. This sent the Chicago Blackhawks into a rage who surrounded the Referee ( Denis Morel ) and Linesmen ( Mark Pare & Brad Lazanowich ) who continued to argue the goal long after the decision was made
This was the first broadcast that let the world know the Winnipeg Jets were in fact going to be leaving the city of Winnipeg. This was a horrible and dark day for not only the city of Winnipeg, the Country of Canada but, the World as a whole.
