Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,
We can envision various legal plays when a player is allowed to deliberately turn and angle his skate to direct a puck into the net or even makes a 'natural' sliding stop at the crease in order to contact the puck causing it to enter the goal. Unless there has been some change in the definition and criteria of a "distinct kicking motion" it makes no sense that Thomas Vanek's goal would be disallowed through a video review decision.
If there has been a "distinct" change in the criteria that the Situation Room employs in rendering their exclusive decisions, perhaps it is time they advise the rest of the hockey world! Until that takes place, Michael, this decision will be viewed by most as "simply a bad call by the guys in Toronto!"
