As of this writing, Paul Stastny‘s 1-0 goal for the St. Louis Blues is the only tally from Monday’s Blues – Philadelphia Flyers game. More than a few Flyers fans likely believe that it should not have counted.

After going through a review process to see if the puck left the offensive zone, officials found an onside vs. offside ruling inconclusive, allowing the goal to stand.

So, was that the right call? You can watch the goal in the video above. This GIF captures some of the challenges facing the replay crew on this one:

Hmm. Tough call. Unless you believe it was a no-brainer.
