Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,
While a minor penalty could have resulted to Evgeni Malkin for his deliberate and intentional contact with Jonathan Bernier (69.2) an argument could be made that Malkin was digging for what he thought to be a 'loose' puck and no penalty would result. Either way (penalty or not) a clear violation of goalkeeper interference took place and the goal should have been waved off.
This dirty goal is just another example for the ongoing need to allow the referee(s) to conduct a video review when goalkeeper interference is suspected. If a Coach's Challenge was allowed, Randy Carlyle would have rightly tossed the flag instead of just blowing a gasket to no avail.
more and watch the goal below...
