One of the strangest goals you’ll ever see, but was it legal? According to the letter of the law it is. Rule 83.4 says that if a puck is ‘shot on goal’ during a delayed offside then the goal doesn’t count (see image below). Of course all laws/rules are open for interpretation and one could make a case for saying the spirit of the rule is to not allow a goal on a delayed offside. Semantics shouldn’t get in the way of the intent of the rule.
Let me know what you think.
thanks to Puck Daddy for the rules image.
