VIDEO: Florida Panthers Put Puck In Net, Aren't Credited With A Goal

On this play from last night's game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Florida Panthers, the puck went in the net. Andreas Nodl backed up his goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, with two saves on the goal line, but you can see in the video below that the bouncing puck did indeed find its way fully across the goal line.

The puck was in the net. We know this. The video evidence doesn't explicitly show the puck in the net, but it shows the puck coming out of it, which should be enough irrefutable proof that it was across the line. It's not, according to rule, and as a result, Florida's comeback effort fell just short

This happens rather frequently in the NHL, as the rule states that if you can't see the puck in the net, the puck is not in the net. Despite the fact that the puck was in the net. Oy, headache.

What's the point in having video review if you can't use all of the evidence it gives you?
