Puck Was In - But No Evidence

from the Vanouver Province,

“I was hoping they’d go upstairs because I saw and I thought it was in,” said Dupuis who was dishing out celebratory high fives to teammates after the play.
“We have the video replay now and I thought they’d call that in. Not a doubt in my mind, not at all.”
Dupuis had basic physics on his side. Even though Luongo was covering the goal line, and the puck was in the air, his mask was clearly in the net when the puck hit him.
But despite more circumstantial evidence than the OJ prosecution team—and the fact CBC later blew up a video still to leave nearly no doubt—the officials in Toronto threw up their hands and said they couldn’t prove what they knew to be true.
“We thought the puck was in but we couldn’t find a picture that showed the puck across the goal line conclusively and that’s our job,” said Mike Murphy, the NHL’s senior vice president.
