Henrik Lundqvist Hints at Fix

On Monday of this week the New York Rangers won game six of the first round NHL playoffs 3-2 to force a deciding game seven so why was Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist up in arms? With the Rangers leading 3-1 with less than a minute remaining the Senators scored after what Lundqvist claimed was interference and an illegal kick of the puck. After a lengthy review officials upheld the call which Lundqvist called an, "absolute joke" and "someone wanted them back in the game, for sure." This hint of collusion sounds similar to comments made by coach John Tortorella after the Winter Classic. Interesting to note that one source showed close to 62% of bettors on the Rangers and roughly 63% on the under which happened to be 5. Bettors were already winning on the side so maybe they did let this extra goal slide to salvage a push on the total and not have a complete loss on the game for Vegas sports books.
