I guess it all depends on how you see it then, lol.
I watched the recap again, and I saw the same thing that I saw before. His stick breaks in two, and he immediately slides his hand down to hold the two pieces together so he can tap the puck in.
Only Abby truly knows though...
2 things to note about the winner:
1- NHL probably has it in their mind the goal is unreviewable (whereas I think all goals should be)
2- The only point where I see the stick clearly broken is after he makes contact with Allen's pads, at that point the stick is awkwardly bent (thus broken imo) neither the refs, nor abby would have the reaction time to identify that as a broken stick before the puck went in. I think it would be unfair to call it back.
2 things about the officials
1 - The linesmen were absolutely brutal!
2 - the amount of interference let go by both sides was VERY interesting. It wasn't subtle at all.
