The fact that the attacking team may have cleared the zone prior to the puck entering the goal has no bearing on this ruling.”

Per Mirtle's article. I'm still kinda confused.
Funny enough, the AHL is far more clear on this than the NHL's own version of the rule. It's a clear 'no goal' using the AHL rules.
