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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
