In the first period of today's game between the Washington Capitals the Philadelphia Flyers, Nicklas Backstrom's shot trickled through Steve Mason and was heading into the net until Mark Streit cleared it off the line. When play eventurally stopped, the referees held a lengthy review. Eventually, the call on the ice of no goal was upheld, much to the chagrin of Capitals fans. Using some crude tools around my house, I'll show why the referees were correct.
