At 17:14 of the third period in the Stars/Maple Leafs game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Kevin Connauton's shot was deflected into the Maple Leafs net by Shawn Horcoff. Horcoff's stick was below the cross bar when he deflected the shot. According to Rule 60.5 "An apparent goal scored by an attacking player who strikes the puck with his stick carried above the height of the crossbar of the goal frame shall not be allowed. The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick." Good Goal Dallas.
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
