NHL referee Tim Peel was caught on a hot mic admitting to calling a bogus penalty against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.  The NHL wasted no time in taking action.

They fired his bogus penalty calling ass on Wednesday morning.

When are professional officials going to learn?  Nobody is watching the games for you.  You miss a call then you miss a call.  Don't go making bogus makeup calls because you have to get even with the team.

I love this move by the NHL.  Major League Baseball could take some notes and start firing bad umpires.  Looking at you Angel Hernandez.
