Messier Never Touched The Puck

I thought I'd throw this out here, considering we're celebrating the 12th anniversary of the Cup. It's meaningless, I know, but till this day I believe this:

On the game-winning goal, Messier NEVER touched the puck. He never got his stick on the puck, it was deflected off of a Vancouver defenseman.

Anyone one agree/disagree? Watch the tape closely, he makes an attempt to hit it but never makes contact.

The other goal that was deflected off a defenseman was Matteau' Game #7 winner against the Devils. The wrap around went off of Fetisov and past Brodeur...it wasn't a clean wraparound...
