Once again, we've got a goal scored through the side of the net. Finland beat U.S. goaltender Robert Esche (yes, that Robert Esche) with a shot that went through the netting wide of the post.The goal somehow stood even though the review was clear, and the Finns beat the United States, 3-2, in a qualifying round game at the world championships.
Sabres fans no doubt remember John LeClair of the Flyers scoring against the Sabres through the side of the net in the 2000 playoffs. Unfortunately, I have yet to find the video of Darcy Regier flipping out on NHL supervisor John D'Amico. But I'll keep looking because it's worth it.
