TORONTO - Bill McCreary admits he made hundreds and hundreds of mistakes in his career as an NHL referee. Kevin King Womens Jersey . But one stands out.The Dallas Stars were in Los Angeles to play the Kings at the Great Western Forum. McCreary let a goal stand on a delayed penalty that shouldnt have counted, and coach Larry Robinson lost it.I look over at the L.A. bench and Larrys standing on the bench giving me the choke sign, McCreary recalled. So now I throw him out of the game and everything just snowballed from there.One problem: McCreary knew he was wrong. Despite 14 years in the league, his mental lapse cost the Kings a goal in a loss and Robinson $5,000.I shouldve known better, McCreary said in a recent phone interview. I learned to keep my whistle on my fingers and not in my mouth when youre working with two senior linesmen.Thats one of a handful of lessons McCreary learned during a career that included 1,737 regular-season games, a record 297 in the playoffs including another record 44 in the Stanley Cup final and three Olympic Games. On Monday hell be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2014 with Peter Forsberg, Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, Rob Blake and the late Pat Burns.McCreary, who was elected in his first year of eligibility, will be the 16th official in the Hall of Fame.I think it has a lot to do with his performance on the ice as an official in the game over a real long period of time, NHL director of officiating Stephen Walkom said in a phone interview. I think in the modern era, Bill McCreary is synonymous with excellence in officiating. Hes just one of the greatest officials that the NHLs ever had.The Guelph, Ont., native said he refereed with two words in mind: fair and safe. They got him to seven straight Stanley Cup final series and eight overall under four different NHL management teams.The consistency part, thats what an official strives to be is consistent within himself, said McCreary, whos now a spokesman for Crown Royals Make the Right Call campaign to promote responsible drinking and an off-ice officiating manager. So I think that shows that that accomplishment was achieved.Referees are often the first people on the ice to get booed before a game and receive the brunt of criticism from players, coaches and wrath from fans. Somehow, McCreary earned respect all around.Walkom, who has worked on and off the ice with McCreary, said that has to do with confidence and trust. Blake cited communication skills.You could have legitimate conversations with (McCreary), Blake said in a phone interview. Theres some refs, even in a heated moment, youre never going to be able to have a conversation with a guy. But Billy was good that way.He was always willing to talk, it didnt matter if you were first year in the league or 15th year in the league. But he was fair. Hed give you the call and he explained about why you got the call. Thats kind of all players really ask for.Prior to McCrearys final NHL game in April 2011, then-Washington Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau enjoyed the mutual respect the longtime referee cultivated.(He) didnt call all the piddly stuff unless it was that kind of game, or hed let stuff go and then hed come over and hed communicate with the coaches, Boudreau said. If anybody wants to be a good ref, all you have to do is learn how to communicate properly with the coaches and it makes it so much easier on everybody concerned.McCreary transcended eras, working a little over half his NHL career under the one-referee system and then the rest of it working with another on the ice at the same time. The 58-year-old conceded it changed his job immensely.(As one referee) it was your game, you were in charge of it and you may have been bad one night but at least you were bad in both ends of the ice, he said. At least you were consistently bad or you were consistently good or you were just consistent. When you went two referees, what you were trying to do is take two judgments of two men and get it as close as possible into one.Unlike baseball umpires, NHL officials dont travel in crews, which means McCreary worked with many other referees. Walkom called him a great role model to younger officials, and other colleagues glowed about how McCreary didnt bigfoot anyone because of his experience.He exuded confidence and left no doubt about who was in charge of the game, referee Dave Jackson said. He also helped mentor every young referee he worked with. You never went on the ice with Billy feeling subordinate, he built you up and made you feel like an equal partner.Early in his career and in important games, McCreary preferred to work alongside senior referees and linesmen because the respect between players and coaches and officials was built in. Later on, he relished the mentor role.It kept me young, it was fun, it was refreshing being with them all day long, McCreary said. It made me be a better person going to the gym every day with them. It also allowed me to mentor them a little bit and try to teach them things that had been handed down to me over time.McCreary first worked the Stanley Cup final in 1994, so that remains a pleasant memory. He also did the 1991 Canada Cup, Wayne Gretzkys final game and the 1998, 2002 and 2010 Olympics.Some seventh games in the Cup final and the gold-medal matchups between Canada and the U.S. in 2002 and 2010 are some of his most treasured accomplishments.It was the first time that a Canadian referee was allowed to referee the United States against Canada in a championship event, McCreary said. That was a big honour.That didnt happen by accident. Walkom praised McCrearys work ethic in games, no matter how big.Off the ice, it remained the same. During the 2004-05 lockout, McCreary picked up a job from a Guelph neighbour delivering, installing and building kitchen cabinets.When the raw material comes in the back door and you see the finished product go out sort of the front door, its a rewarding experience to know you were a part of it, McCreary said.McCreary joins fellow member of the Guelph Hockey Referees Association Ray Scapinello in the Hockey Hall of Fame.McCreary learned from him and the late John McCauley how to officiate at a high level for a long period of time.I think something I learned was to get respect you have to give respect, McCreary said. You always dont have to put your arm in the air and call a penalty, but you certainly have to let people know maybe why you didnt or maybe the next time why you will. Its a skill that, its hard to develop because its about gaining respect with the players and coaches and managers and it takes a lot of hard work. But I think its very vital to be successful.---Follow @SWhyno on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version said George Ashley was in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Josh Jones Packers Jersey . The Canadian skicross racer appeared to have the bronze medal locked up in the mens final at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, only to wipe out while trying to make a pass in the biggest moment of his career. Montravius Adams Womens Jersey . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http://www.packersauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Jamaal-Williams-Packers-Jersey/ .Y. -- Phil Jackson lost out on his preferred coach, but hes working hard on keeping his star player. ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild were denied at the net by Semyon Varlamov time after time, a 44-shot barrage in regulation that resulted in, alas, zero goals. Coach Mike Yeo jokingly wondered aloud at the third intermission whether his team was "psychotic" to put itself through such angst. After all, the way this sport often goes, the next score in the scoreless game had the strong potential to be one of those bad-bounce goals that make a night of domination go for naught. Mikael Granlund made sure that didnt happen. Granlunds diving goal 5:08 into overtime gave the Wild a 1-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Game 3 on Monday. Minnesota pulled within 2-1 in the best-of-seven series after Varlamov stopped 45 of 46 shots, a franchise playoff record for shots on goal by the Wild. "You see it so many times where teams do so well and get chance after chance after chance and then a fluky one goes in against you. Luckily. that wasnt the case," said Wild left wing Zach Parise. Granlund, who had a career-high seven shots on goal, sliced toward the crease and moved parallel to the net with some slick stick work. Avalanche defenceman Erik Johnson, who saved Game 1 by racing to swat away a shot on an empty net, lost his balance and tried unsuccessfully to dive at Granlund, who then began to fall forward. Granlund extended his stick to knock the puck in, and the celebration ensued. "We were playing really good. We were creating chances. We got rewarded. We need to just keep playing like that," Granlund said. Game 4 is at Xcel Energy Center on Thursday, when the Avalanche will be without defenceman Tyson Barrie. He took a knee-to-knee hit in the second period that yielded a penalty for Matt Cooke and a medial collateral ligament injury for Barrie. Coach Patrick Roy said hell be need four to six weeks to recover. "Knee on Tyson Barrie is without a doubt the play of the game. We lost our best offensive defenceman," Roy said, expressing confidence the NHL will suspend Cooke. Darcy Kuemper made 22 saves, and the Wild goalie in his first career playoff start was juust as good as Varlamov. Montravius Adams Youth Jersey. He said he had a feeling this would be a one-goal game. "I just tried to stick with it and make the saves I had to," Kuemper said. "My teammates were obviously playing unbelievable and making it easy on me. I was just trying to do my job and stay sharp." After the Avalanche line of Nathan MacKinnon, Paul Stastny and Gabe Landeskog combined for 17 points and seven goals over the first two games, the Wild kept them from doing any damage. The Wild shuffled their lines, with veteran Dany Heatleys move off the scratch list the most notable change, and played their style. They didnt get enough guys to the net for long rebounds Varlamov has a tendency to produce, but they completely controlled the flow, even if there wasnt much to show for it. "We were a little on our heels. We couldve been a little bit better, played a little more simple," MacKinnon said. After wasting a 4-2 lead in Game 1, giving up the tying goal with 13 seconds left to Stastny, as well as the overtime winner, the Wild badly needed to recapture some energy. They did from the opening faceoff, firing up a crowd thats been waiting 11 years for a playoff series victory. The Wild finally figured out how to contain the super-fast MacKinnon, forcing the 18-year-old wonder to have to stay in his own zone. They had the Avalanche on their heels for the majority of regulation. Cooke was all over the ice in his 100th career playoff game, colliding with just about every white Colorado jersey. "We didnt play up to what were capable of, theres no doubt. But Id rather give them credit. They played well. They were sharp. They were the better team on the ice," Roy said, adding yet more praise for Varlamov. Thanks to Granlund, the Wild avoided the huge hole. "Lets not kid ourselves. This is a huge win for us, not only to get the win but the way that we played the game, the way that we played our game," Yeo said. "We know that next game is going to be even bigger and a tougher test, and were going to have to be real good. But theres no question that we needed this one."
