Cmon, were people actually worried about that?
It was the result of a hit by Mitchell. Sure the player shouldn't have grabbed the net, but it is not like he was standing there back there alone lifting the net. Even then, what would that prove? If it becomes a nuisance to the goalie, they will blow it down as a delay of game penalty, but it doesn't do anything but make them down a man while someone stands by the net and lifts it up... It would still be a goal if the goalie was unhindered and the puck was put in between the pipes and crosses the line. The goal doesn't have to be all the way down.
