Bardof, basically you see what you want to see.
I just watch it again as well; only saw it live before. And we're both a little off. Franson throws the puck into his skates he takes possession then gets knocked down and the puck goes into the corner. He didn't force the puck anywhere. He gets up and heads to the net; he wasn't planted...
So, he was forechecking and Franson through two actions; putting the puck in Boyle's skates and knocking him to the ice propels the puck into the corner where Moore picks it up and then we agree on what happens. To say he created that goal is still ridiculous. I think we can agree that he was on the ice and forechecking. But he didn't make a play. Actually no one did anything right; the goal was pure luck from Franson's sloppiness to a couple of good bounces. Done with this.
