Through video review, NHL Hockey Operations confirmed referee Brian Pochmara's call on the ice that Boston's Nathan Horton's shot completely crossed the goal line before the puck was swept out by Montreal defenseman Jaroslav Spacek 14:38 into the first period.
Video review was used to determine if the puck crossed the line before time expired in the second period. The official burn-in clock on the overhead camera had time expired before the puck crossed the line. No goal.
I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there.
