The puck was passed cross ice, there was an offensive player standing right in the middle of the goalie's crease, the goalie couldn't move over to cover the other side of the net for this reason alone, and the puck was shot into the empty side. No wave-off by refs, no video review, not even complaining about it from announcers or the other team. But it was clear goalie interference.
Why have rules if you won't enforce them?
He wasn't standing in the crease, he was outside the crease and wasn't touching Brodeur at all. It's not goalie interference, but it's now unsportsmanlike conduct thanks to Colin Campbell.
