At 7:46 of the first period in the Dallas Stars/Anaheim Ducks game, video review confirmed the referee's call on the ice that Shawn Horcoff's stick was above the height of the crossbar when it deflected the puck into the Anaheim net. 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. No goal Dallas.
I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
