Any hockey refs here?

Post by John Q. Public »

Is this a goal or not? I can't see where the puck is, but it seems to be on #39's person somewhere. Can the puck be hand carried into the net?

Don't look at me, I just work here.

Not a referee, but a huge Ducks fan since their inception.

It's no goal. An offensive player can only score a goal by directing the puck with his stick (below the level of the goal crossbar) or by having it deflect off his body with no intentional action on his part to direct the puck into the net. This guy intentionally backed into the net assuming he had the puck. That's not allowed.

Correct. Basically, if you intentionally hit it into the goal with anything other than your stick (below the crossbar), it's no goal. Remember the last time the Ducks started 3-0?

I remember that no-goal. And I have to admit it was an amazing effort and quick reactions.
