Why was the obvious Brian Boyle short-handed goal with 8:28 left to go in the game not a goal, even after it was reviewed? I want an answer that makes sense. The referee clearly blew the whistle well after the puck had crossed the line. So far all the explanations I have heard involving words like “intended” “lost sight” and “interference” are absolute garbage. Are you seriously trying to tell me that at any time the refs can waive off any goal they want with an explanation that is as simple as “I blinked at the wrong time and intended to blow the whistle earlier then I obviously did, even though I clearly didn’t”? Smells like garbage to me.
@nhl @nhlshanahan @espn_nhl – I want an answer that actually makes sense regarding the Boyle no goal
