It's the same with a referee/lineman getting in the way when you try to clear the puck and then the other team scores cause it stayed in. The ref is part of the play, and it's on the player to get it around him. Same with this. I don't care if Thomas is standing in a 3 foot pond of water in the shape of the crease, they should still be able to score. Especially when there is ZERO DEFENSE in front of you.

And considering that other goalies have said that they do this, this shouldn't be a new occurrence to Read. Should have been something he's been aware of for years if he's made it to the NHL level.

If it's really that big of an effect as people say, this times 100. It should be a requirement that he squirts a ring of water around him at every stoppage of play.
