Goal Controversy in Toronto Takes a New Turn with Latest Evidence Release

The Maple Leafs made numerous errors in their opening playoff game against Tampa Bay. It’s not an excuse, but the refs didn’t give them many opportunities.

The Bolts scored a controversial goal during Michael Bunting’s five-minute penalty for his violent hit on Erik Cernak.

When the officials analyzed the action, they discovered that no camera viewpoint truly showed the puck crossing the line. Nonetheless, the goal was permitted.

A new camera angle was released, allowing us to observe the puck pass the line.

After so many “coincidences,” it’s natural for fans to question the NHL’s refereeing competence, but in this case, it appears the league made the correct decision.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
