2/27/16: Brendan Gallagher's tip-in goal is waived off and, after a review, the on-ice call of no goal stands

At 2:49 of the second period in the Maple Leafs/Canadiens game, video review confirmed that Brendan Gallagher's stick was above the height of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the Toronto 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." Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Montreal.
