Video- No Goal, Then A Goal For Milan Lucic

via the NHL Situation Blog,

At 1:41 of the first period in the Rangers/Bruins game, video review determined that the puck deflected off Milan Lucic's skate and into the net in a legal fashion. According to Rule 49.2 "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player's skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal." Good goal Boston.

I don’t like it, but under the current rules it’s a good goal. In my opinion, they should only allow accidental deflections when it comes to goals scored with a skate, but it is what it is.
