Somewhere along the line the pendulum has swung back the other way on crease contact. First we had ridiculous runs at the goalie. Then the even more ridiculous "toe in the crease" calls.

I think a lot of stuff to distract the goalie is being let go a bit too much. Everybody is doing it. Talk about illogic, when the goalie is roaming around behind the net, the slightest contact (even embellished stuff) draws a penalty. When he is "protected" by the crease he gets jostled like crazy, nothing.
Happens more often than it should. Because the goaltender cannot play the puck they wave off the goal and treat it as if the net came off type of situation. No penalty gets called because the refs are stupid in the first place to not call an interference penalty on the player pushed into the goaltender. That is the problem.

It should be a goal, but they don't call it because the goaltender isn't given an opportunity to make a save.
