Bad Bounce for Marlies Gives Admirals a Stranglehold on Calder Cup - James Mirtle at the Globe and Mail
83.4 Disallowed Goal – If the puck is shot on goal during a delayed offside, the play shall be allowed to continue under the normal clearingthe-zone rules. Should the puck, as a result of this shot, enter the defending team’s goal, either directly or off the goalkeeper, a player or an official on the ice, the goal shall be disallowed as the original shot was off-side. The fact that the attacking team may have cleared the zone prior to the puck entering the goal has no bearing on this ruling. The face-off will be conducted at the face-off spot in the zone closest to the point of origin of the shot that gives the offending team the least amount of territorial advantage.
So yeah the refs blew that call....in a 0-0 overtime game....in a pivotal Game 3. There is a Hockey God and he hates Toronto.
