from Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet,
The confusion was real, though the reactions weren’t quite as raw as they might have been had the Winnipeg Jets not been able to find a way to squeeze out the extra point after another bizarre and entertaining finish.
The 5-4 overtime win over the Dallas Stars on Friday night represented an impressive bounce-back effort after a 6-1 shellacking to the Minnesota Wild two days earlier, but by allowing two more extra attacker goals, there’s clearly an area the Jets are going to need to clean up in short order as they’ve given up five of those goals in two games over a three-game span.
That the game even required overtime was a point of contention for the Jets, who couldn’t believe the fourth goal by the Stars was allowed to count, as it came with goalie Connor Hellebuyck sprawled out on the ice with his mask knocked off and taking cover after a collision with Stars captain Jamie Benn.
After a video review that was initiated by the NHL situation room, the goal was allowed to count as the officials deemed that the actions of Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey led to Benn’s contact with Hellebuyck.
The NHL said in a statement that "the decision was made in accordance with Note 2 of Rule 38.11 (ii) which states, in part, that the goal should be allowed because 'the attacking Player was pushed, shoved or fouled by the defending Player causing the attacking Player to come into contact with the goalkeeper.'"
