from Kerry Fraser of TSN,
From his position behind the net, referee Watson's initial instinct was to wave off the goal. Something obviously didn't smell right for him as he looked through the back of Reimer and Nazem Kadri. The ref immediately looked for input from the other members of the officiating crew. A decision to allow the goal must have resulted from that conference.
Since video replay is unable to rule upon a potential violation of goalkeeper interference, their only input on this play was to establish that the puck entered the net, hence the "good goal" terminology. General managers, please provide the referees with the capability to more accurately determine the presence of goalie interference through a video monitor located in the penalty box. Your team just might be recipients of the next "dirty goal" that is allowed unjustly.
