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.
This is pretty hard to believe. You think one of the best goal scorers in NHL history just
to do some slapdash actions and bury the puck out of luck? It looks like he very clearly intends to do what he does. It's a move players use all the time.
Anyone could have taken possession of the puck, sure. But that's true at all points of the game; at any point where you have the puck, someone else can take it. The thing is, nobody else did take it. It was all Hull's.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
