Hull swipes at the puck with his stake and kicks it to an area of the ice where nobody is. He is just kicking at it to get it free. That is not possession of the puck. Anyone could have taken possession of it.
He bats his stick to the area where the puck now is which is outside the crease and bangs it into the goal.
It was no goal.
