There’s 2:20 left in regulation and the Irish still trail by three. Their net is empty. Even a power play at this point probably won’t help Notre Dame – BC has killed all 15 penalties with weekend.
We just got handed the official explanation on the disallowed goal: “The puck was kicked in the net by the Notre Dame player’s right skate. The skate was moving toward the goal line. There were sticks in the crease , and we needed to make sure there wasn’t a deflection off the sticks or the defender’s skates after it was kicked.”
I don’t know about “kicked”. It was directed, unintentionally by Lawson as he attempted to play the puck off his skate to his stick. But it never made it to his stick – it went into the net.
