The linesman doesn’t care; his job ended when Ovechkin crossed the blue line on-side. Linesmen rarely remember who scores or who pulls oﬀ something amazing, because it’s not their job to pay attention. Oﬃcials need to be myopic, watching the lines, the ice, the puck. They can’t remember historical moments because they themselves are subtle elements of those moments.
The oﬃcials were speechless. Quinn and Henry left the room. ” Scampy asked his cohorts. ” Henry asked the Sabres’ boss. “Don’t worry, I’ll do it, and as it gets closer, I’ll let you coordinate it,” Quinn answered.
