Go Ahead NHL, I dare you tell us this was conclusive!
The Rangers just finished beating the Capitals in Washington without Henrik Lundqvist and Rick Nash. They did it off the back of Annti Raanta and some clutch Rangers scoring. However, the game almost changed when somehow THIS was ruled a goal!
I’m still waiting for someone to show me CONCLUSIVELY where it can be seen crossing the line. Here is a tweet from a Caps blogger apparently saying it was “behind a skate” when it went over. Great…that’s not CONCLUSIVE!

Here’s a zoom in video of said goal…
Before the start of the third period, John Giannone of MSG explained that the Rangers did not have access to the NHL’s “Hawkeye” system which shows the goal going in. That prompted this response from me.

No one I’ve spoken to has seen anything definitive and Steve Valiquette of MSG is shaking his head.

Alain Vigneault said in his presser that they received the video and they still “can’t tell”!
So what do you think?
