Cracking me up, all the articles out there, explaining and explaining how it was a good goal. Um. No. But perhaps if you explain it some more, and justify and use more words, the majority of hockey fans will believe it.
It comes down to something as simple as this:
Within the bounds of the rules it was a goal. Therefore, it was a goal. We hate it now, but, if the situation was reversed we would be lauding the ref for making a fine call. This isn't 2002 when the refs were making phantom calls about the exact position of Homer's ass in time and space, this is the right call technically speaking. Now, I hate it, I wish the ref was blind and called it a no goal.
