Here’s that ‘inconclusive’ no-goal that angered Red Wings fans


Get this: there’s a goal that wasn’t a goal after a review and hockey fans were upset.

In this case, Detroit Red Wings fans are the ones who are exasperated; you can see what happened in the video above.

As usual, the NHL trotted out an explanation on its Situation Room blog, whether that’s going to satisfy anyone or not:

At 5:56 of the first period in the Capitals/Red Wings game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play from 2:14. Video review was inconclusive in determining whether the puck completely crossed the Washington goal line. Therefore the original call on the ice stands – no goal Detroit.
