Why did Homer's goal tonight in the 1st period count?

His stick was in the crease, and he hit Fleury's collarbone before he hit the puck, as Fleury was laying on the ice. Based on the new rule that the NHL created in the last game, this goal should not have counted. biggrin.gif

What do you guys think?

As the league said in the last game: "He impeded the goalie's chance to make a save".

This time, he impeded Fleury's chances of making a save by scoring.

Ha ha, no kidding.

In all honesty, I was holding my breath there for a sec after they scored to see if the asshats in stripes were going to call it off.

Because it was a rebound and he was going after the puck. Had he been there before the puck, and not actually contacted the puck, they would have waved it off.

The NHL will review it and change the final score to 2-0.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

While I was pretty confident that goal was going to be legit, a small part of me was thinking, "They are going to find some bogus excuse to the extent that his stick was in the crease, and the air from the stick caused enough persperation to prevent Fleury from moving over to make the stop."

Obviously I'm greatly exaggerating but you get what I mean. biggrin.gif
