Seriously, a referee missing a penalty like this should suffer consequences. A team could actually make or miss the PO based on such a goal.
This was a no goal. Say the Panthers are tied for 8th spot but the Leafs make it through due to one extra win...I know this may look far fetched, but when we look at the closeness of the standings these past years, it could very well happen.

Mistakes happen. Refs can't get everything right. But this is unacceptable. If they don't want to hold Refs accountable for these mistakes, then they should allow the video judge to refuse the goal when it's such a clear case of interference. He didn't just flare the goalie, he ran him over. Reminds me of the goal Philly scored vs Huet in Washington. Player pretty much tackles Huet out of the way and they kept the goal, in the POs..Unacceptable.

The NHL is really a joke when it comes to officiating and discipline.
