NHL.com @NHL

At 13:26 of the second period in the Toronto Maple Leafs/New York Rangers game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck crossed the Toronto goal line. The referee informed the Situation Room that Rangers forward Lee Stempniak was in the process of shooting the puck as Maple Leafs defender Peter Holland dislodged the net. According to Rule 63.6 "In the event that the goal post is displaced, either deliberately or accidentally, prior to the puck crossing the normal positions of the goal posts, the referee may award a goal. In order to award a goal in this situation, the goal post must have been displaced by the actions of a defending player, the puck must have been shot (or the player must be in the act of shooting) at the goal prior to the goal post being displaced, and it must be determined that the puck would have entered the net between the normal position of the goal posts. The goal frame is considered to be displaced if either or both goal pegs are no longer in their respective holes in the ice, or the net has come completely off one or both pegs, prior to or as the puck enters the goal". Video review supported the referee's call on the ice - good goal New York Rangers.
