Rule 91 in the NHL Rulebook directly addresses your question in Paragraph C:
If, when the opposing goalkeeper has been removed from the ice, a player in control of the puck is tripped or otherwise fouled with no opposition between him and the opposing goal, thus preventing a reasonable scoring opportunity, the Referee shall immediately stop play and award a goal to the attacking Team.
He was clearly behind all players when lacavalier took his legs out. He would of absolutely skated it right into the net
Didn't know if this has come up with anyone before this lame thread
I seen a ref do just that last week for a habs player.
