"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Sabre's needed that one, lol
If the goalie had known the puck was in his pants, he would not have retreated into the goal. If I were on the goalie's team, I would protest the daylights out of calling it a goal.
I'm afraid that "I didn't mean to do that" isn't a sanctioned reason for disallowing a goal in the NHL.
