I was pulling for Peca and for Buffalo in that series, and it hurt, but that goal was completely legal.

I do agree the NHL was lucky, in that I don't think they reviewed the goal properly.
I agree 100 per cent. Nothing like beating a dead horse....the goal was legal and the Stanley Cup is not tarnished in the slightest. The most deserving team won on a fair goal.
