ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — In light of the Sharks' controversial 5-4 win over the Blues Wednesday night a Chesterfield man has set up a GoFundMe page in spite of a missed call by an NHL referee.

Many assert the loss was due to an illegal hand pass, which the NHL deems "non-reviewable."

John Randall created the GoFundMe a day after Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference final to raise $7,000 for the St. Louis Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired. As of 3 p.m. Friday, the campaign has raise over $4,100.


The page describes the purpose of the fundraiser: "This fundraiser is being made in honor of Marc Joannette (NHL Ref). Funds go directly to the St. Louis Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Asking for donations from anyone who watched the Blues get completely shafted by a hand pass goal that ended game 3 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last night. Turn your anger into passion for a good cause. Let’s go Blues!!!"

While St. Louis may be extremely frustrated, perhaps some charity can come of it.

The fourth out of a possible seven-game series takes place Friday night in St. Louis.
