Weird thing about Offsides.

I saw this play Rick Nash did in the 2010 Can vs USA Olympics (Preliminary) where he's carrying the puck backwards into the offensive zone so both his feet pass the blue line before the puck does. Is this allowed? I thought one foot had to be on the blue line no matter what when the puck crosses.

It happens at 6:40 in the 2nd period, or at 1:10:25 of this youtube clip

Thanks!
