EDM @ TOR -17:47 of the first period


At 17:47 of the first period in the Oilers/ Maple Leafs game following a scrum in front of the Maple Leafs net in which the puck crossed the goal line, the referee determined on the ice that there was goaltender interference by  incidental contact . No goal, no penalty.

According to rule 69.3 "If an attacking player initiates contact with a goalkeeper, incidental or otherwise, while the goalkeeper is in his goal crease, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed."
Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
