Video- “That Is In The Net’ No Goal By Kyle Turris

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

While it "appears" that Kyle Turris' shot "quite possibly" crossed the goal line based on the heel position of Nicklas Grossmann's skate, various angles of video do not provide the necessary conclusive evidence to overturn referee Paul Devorski's initial call on the play and allow a goal.
 
While it is more probable than not that the puck crossed the goal line, the fuzzy depth perception that we gain once the puck deflected off Grossmann's left skate and went airborne provides a lack of conclusive evidence that is required to allow a goal through video review. The men in the NHL's Situation Room cannot make their decision based on any "logical assumptions" but must clearly see the puck enter the net. Even with various camera angles that are available, that process is made much more difficult once the puck leaves the ice surface and takes flight.

continued and watch the play below...

Fraser, you’re bullshit, you’re really bullshit.

Has anyone in the NHL explained why they can’t put a sensor in a puck that would make sure things like this never happened? Not technically feasible? Too expensive? Not a sensible solution?

You mean like the same sort of chip that was no problem to stick in a puck with Fox wanted to help casual sports fans better understand hockey?

Yeah, no frickin’ clue why they couldn’t do that again.
