    Lately, all we have heard is the good stuff about NHL, the wins, the close-out games, but we forget one of the most heated subjects in all of sports, bad calls. I would venture a guess that even non or light sports fans can remember a bad call or two that they've witnessed, and NHL is no exception to such a thing existing. Here are the top 5 most controversial calls made during the Stanley Cup Final.

    5. Marty McSorley's stick measurement in Game 2 of the 1993 finals

    4. No offside call in Game 6 of the 1980 finals

    3. The quick whistle in Game 6 of the 2017 finals

    2. Over the line in Game 6 of the 2004 finals

    1. Skate in the crease in Game 6 of the 1999 finals

    Yeah. Funny, my eyes scanned for the 2017 game 6 call. Was going to add if it wasn't there. I figured that's what prompted the thread though. Sucks to think how much a single call can change the entire flow of a game. And sometimes a series, if you buy into momentum.
