At first after watching this game live and that very goal happen I thought the call was right initially. However, as I looked at the rule book on pushing the goaltender to cause such a goal to occur when the netminder makes a save I changed my mind as it’s clearly stated that it would be a no goal and the Refs did get it wrong. It makes for a great game 7 but it’s disappointing to see refs create such a momentum swing on a bad call when they were all unsure in the first place; you have one job.

Iggy, first off thanks for becoming a KK member.

I just wanted to point out people can find out more about you by clicking your name in the comment section, therefore there is no reason to point out you job position when posting a comment.

Once again the Sharks display that they’re natural born losers…from their coach to their captain and on down. “We got cheated”. Seriously? Is that why as Cup “contenders” for the past 5-6 seasons you’ve managed to advance past the 2nd round once? Every sound bite of Joe Thornton after a playoff loss is littered with excuses for how they let the other team do this and that, or how they didn’t play their game with no apparent recognition of how the other team played winning hockey. Once that Williams goal went in the Sharks had their excuse to lose. Rather then bear down and get it back they melt down and promptly allow two more goals in the next 3 minutes to fulfill their destiny.

@Iggy - The rule states that a goal should be disallowed if the goalie gets pushed over the goal line WITH the puck. Stalock never entered the net. So, by your reasoning, the goal is good. Now, should it be interference? That is a different question all together.
