Video- Finally Ruled A Goal

After what seemed like a ten minute review, the situation room in Toronto reversed the on-ice decision of no goal and awarded Andrew Cogliano the goal.

Which was ridiculous considering their statement said they knew the puck had to have been hit because it was stopped by Emery’s pad, bu they never actually saw it. This goes against the actual rulebook and sets a dangerous precedent.

Not even taking into consideration what it did to the Blackhawks’ momentum and probably cost them the game.

The puck moves faster after Cogliano whacks his stick, implying that his stick was the last thing to touch the puck before it went in.  There’s no physical way that the goaltender’s pads could have made the puck move that much faster.  Good call.  Simple physics at play.

Does. Not. Matter.  The video review can’t make inferences.  This should not have been called a goal.  It’s like when a puck is under a goalie’s pad and then 95% of the pad crosses the goal line. They would not call that a goal because, you’re just not allowed to draw inferences, or use logic. You have to see it cross the line (or have the entire pad cross the line). Similarly here, you would need to see the stick striking the puck, which you never do.
