I saw this on tv live. I'm a lifelong flyers fan and even I said "c'mon that's not even fair"

It's very Datsuyk-esque.

more like a time traveller. Nice goal none the less.

Stolen from and not nearly as smooth as Datsyuk.

Stolen from and not nearly as smug as David Blaine.

Looked like the puck had backward momentum for a split second there. The ref could've been a dick about it.
Go Flyers!

Haven't been watching the shootout much in the last couple years huh? Seems like half of the "highlight" shootout goals violate this rule. They actually wrote in an exception that spin moves are allowed because they're a continuous motion, despite the fact that the puck isn't (necessarily) continuing towards the goal through the whole move.

Penalty shot rules (new window)

I think "seems" is the key word here. I've yet to see good video evidence of a puck that actually stopped.

Here's one (new window) where it might, with St. Louis breaking off the spinorama.

And here's one (new window) where Briere stops, but the puck doesn't.

Then there's Kane's (new window) goal, where you could probably argue that on one of his dekes he was moving so slow, that when he pulled the puck back it stopped moving forward.

Of the three, St. Louis' might be the one that violates the spirit of the rule, as it looks like the puck might have stopped. But I need better video to see if it actually did.

Heh- the same could probably be said for the Giroux goal...

I bet the Girouxs did this.

Puck had backwards momentum, twice.

I know about the spin-o-rama move being legal and that wasn't legal.

came here to say this.

Infact, he does it better - Datsuyk rapes Vokoun (new window)

It's not just that the puck can't stop. The wording is (taken from the link to the official rules I posted earlier), "The puck must be kept in motion towards the opponent's goal line."

So, if the puck travels backwards, it's not longer kept in motion TOWARDS the opponent's goal line. Or if it's only travelling laterally. I see that happen all the time when a player is "dangling" the puck. Either it's travelling backwards for a short time, or it's travelling solely in a lateral direction to the goal line. Both violate the rule as worded, but it never gets called.

I said, "Very much like Datsyuk" as soon as I saw it. My (Red Wings fan) dad said, "IT'S NOTHING LIKE DATSYUK."

So, you know, Wings fans.

Probably because it's likely the intent of the rule is to stop them from skating towards and away from the goal. As long as they player is still making a solid forward effort towards the goal they'd be inclined to let it slide as it is something the fans like to see and doesn't really detract from the sport.

That was mean.

Giroux called it "The Datsyuk". Great goal.
