    upheld the Referee’s call on the ice. Result: Goal Toronto.
  • Per the NHL Situation Room, the decision was made in accordance with Rule 63.7 which states, in
    part, that “in the event that the goal post is displaced, either deliberately or accidentally, by a
    defending player, prior to the puck crossing the goal line between the normal position of the
    goalposts, the Referee may award a goal. In order to award a goal in this situation, the goal post must
    have been displaced by the actions of a defending player, the attacking player must have an
    imminent scoring opportunity prior to the goal post being displaced, and it must be determined that
    the puck would have entered the net between the normal position of the goal posts.”
