The problem with the rule is that it is way too subjective.

They either need to allow or disallow all goals off of skates, or things like this will continue to happen.

Janssen obviously directed the puck into the net with his skate. You could see how he buried his head at the point of impact which indicates intent to direct the puck into the net using his skate. It doesn't necessarily mean he "kicked" it in though. Too much grey area.

The fact that he was skating around at center ice like a dumb meat head waiting for the call and then smirking on the bench afterward like a child who stole a cookie from the cookie jar made it even worse. What a dope.

Whatever you think, its a ****** goal that changed the momentum of the game, but the Rangers are to blame for putting themselves in that position, losing yet another lead to a team that they should have put away last night.
