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

Recommended Posts

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.
