That's exactly what goaltender interference is supposed to be. You can't skate through the blue ice and bump the goalie and expect the goal to count.

I concur, Honus.

You can't headshot a goalie on your way through the crease and consider it a good goal.

Going to have to agree to disagree there.

Normally, I would have expected the goal to be waived but per the ref's argument, it came down to the sequence of events and I understand that.

The goaltender interference infraction was levied in the course of Dumoulin's motion through the crease and before the puck crossed the line so the next time a Pens' player gained possession, the play should have been blown dead immediately. Granted, normally you don't see the puck carrier take the penalty so he never really lost possession in the interval between when the infraction occurred and when the ref made his call.

Of course, I can understand you might be arguing it shouldn't have been a penalty in the first place but if the league is serious about cutting down on head injuries, you really do have to crack down on hits to goaltenders' heads.

I think the league needs to decide what role the crease plays and what role a skater being directed into a goaltender plays in goaltender interference calls. I could see rules around those things going a few different ways but the important thing is to make a decision, make the rule clear, and enforce it consistently.

Normally, I would have expected the goal to be waived but per the ref's argument, it came down to the sequence of events and I understand that.

The goaltender interference infraction was levied in the course of Dumoulin's motion through the crease and before the puck crossed the line so the next time a Pens' player gained possession, the play should have been blown dead immediately. Granted, normally you don't see the puck carrier take the penalty so he never really lost possession in the interval between when the infraction occurred and when the ref made his call.

Of course, I can understand you might be arguing it shouldn't have been a penalty in the first place but if the league is serious about cutting down on head injuries, you really do have to crack down on hits to goaltenders' heads.


he was being pushed into Andy. He was going to the net hard on a scoring chance. Shit happens.


Any player contact to the goalies head should be immediately whistled.

Now that opens up goalies to stick their head out in the way, but that's about the same as players turning their backs to hits. You can risk yourself for that whistle I suppose, but it could end up with you hurt.

If your own D man pushes the oncoming forward into your goalie that’s their fault. We’re removing great aspects of hockey, such as driving to the net, with this bullshit.

I can pretty much guarantee Dumoulin doesn’t even touch Andy if not pushed. That had to be taken into consideration.

The line he took left Hainsey with no other choice than a bullfighter move and I doubt Dumoulin has the nimbleness to dance around Andersen without hitting him on that play.
