LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Golden Knights fans were disappointed after the team fell in Game 7 against the San Jose Sharks Tuesday night and that includes local law enforcement.
The Sharks stormed back from three goals down to steal the game away from the Knights after a controversial penalty call in the third period in what turned into a 5-4 final.
Many fans believe that penalty cost Vegas the game as it included a five-minute power play for San Jose.
Troopers with the Nevada Highway Patrol also didn’t agree with the call and shared a warning to the refs on Wednesday.
"If refs are on vacation here in Nevada or Las Vegas they better wear their corrective lenses, if it is on their license because clearly, they weren't wearing them last night during the game,” NHP Trooper Jason Buratczuk said.
Plus, 13 Action News viewers also sided against the refs call with 86 percent not agreeing with the penalty.
