Beyak also mentioned maybe because the puck was in the air, not lying on the ice, but not the case. The definition of the crease is the "blue" semi-circle you see drawn on the ice, extending from the ice up to the crossbar. So if he saw Hainsey closing his hand on the puck, should've been a penalty shot.

On another note, no idea why some people were complaining that the quick whistle cost NJ a goal. Everyone had stopped playing and were standing around for at least one full second before the shot was taken.
