Check out Colton Orr’s completely legal go-ahead goal in Tuesday’s Maple Leafs / Panthers game:
“That effing COUNTED???” – Scott Hartnell, Matt Cooke, and Tomas Holmstrom all in unison, harmonizing.
That’s easily the second-worst uncalled goalie interference I’ve seen in recent years, behind only the not-notorious-enough Flyers/Capitals Game 7 goal from 2008, which gets worse every time I go back and rewatch it (skip to 2:27):
Right? That should be, like, Tuck Rule famous. Especially because Patrick Thoresen and Sami Kapanen are easily as high-profile as Tom Brady, in a couple houses in Sami Kapanen’s Finnish birthtown.
Also, when I first mentioned the Orr clip to my friend Doug on GChat, I was amused at the predictable exchange that took place:
me: did you see colton orr’s goal last night
Doug: was it good, or did it involve body slamming a goalie
me: it exactly involved body slamming a goalie
