Nyr/njd - Game 5 - Callahan's Deflection Goal

11 posts in this topic

Anybody else consider this goal very similiar to the disallowed Daniel Sedin goal in the opening round series from two years' ago with LA ?

Circumstances are very similiar:

- player's stick is out of play

- player glides foot into a stopping motion

- player seem aware of where puck is and what they are doing

The video of the two plays seem very similiar but

the analysis below says that Callahan's was a 'deflection' and therefore a good goal, while Sedin's had a "non-distinct" but a visible kicking motion and therefore not a 'deflection'

Anyone else's thoughts?

They are similar, and I see where your coming from on this one. This is just another example of the inconsistency of the NHL officiating and war room. Given this is a couple years difference.... but yea, imo both goals should have counted.

What do you expect its Mike Murphy!!! The same guy who took over in the Finals last year for Colin Cambell in the discipline department.

Welcome to the NHL, the sport where no one knows the rules

Pretty sure the guys in Toronto just flip a coin when it comes to possible kick-ins.

The rules are deliberately ambiguous.

All pucks that are scored off a player's skate/leg should be disallowed. This is hockey, not soccer. Use your stick.
