Video- Ben Bishop Is One Thankful Goalie

Bishop's terrible clearing pass went directly to Travis Hamonic of the Islanders, who put the puck in the net from center ice, but Brock Nelson was ruled offside.

I slowed this down and paused a bunch, and I’m still not seeing Offsides.  Clearly he is going to the bench via the door, which is on the TB side of the blue line, but from what I can see he doesn’t appear to actually cross the blue line and enter the bench door prior to the puck crossing the blue line.

I saw some people commenting yesterday at A2Y that the Linesman almost always get it right; this may have be an example of that “almost” part!
