Its not that it should have been no goal because his skate was in the crease, it should not have counted because the referee made a mistake and applied the correct rule to the wrong situation.
That's the thing. It was an illegal goal under the rules the at the time the game was being played. If Modano would have scored on a breakaway to win the Cup, fine, we can deal with that, but it should not have counted, and the game shouldn't have ended at 54:51 of overtime.

The NHL blew it, and it'll never go away. That section on the Cup will always be tarnished because of the way it went down.
