As numerous people have already stated here, the call could have gone either way.

And frankly, if THAT'S going to be the definition of "push" from here to eternity, I'd rather the goal stand because I dont want any further ************* of the sport that I love, because if that's a "push", then we may as well eliminate hockey contact altogether, because defensemen wont want to get within 8 feet of an opposing forward.

What Volchenkov SHOULD have done in that situation with < 5 seconds left on the clock is what Scott Stevens used to do in those situations with < 5 seconds left on the clock, which is to put a WWF move on Gaborik and take a ridiculously blatant penalty by hauling the opposing forward down with a bear tackle.

Because who cares if you're shorthanded with 2.8 seconds left in the game? It's better than giving up a scoring glance.
C'mon now, that type of dirty **** is for Philly.
