Reasoning behind Pyatt's Goal

I watched the game last night (for the first time since the dreadful Isles game) at a local bar with the sound off, so we didn't get the explanation, but could someone explain why Pyatt was awarded a goal when the puck never went in.

I thought those things only happened against the Sabres, not for them.

BTW, great game tonight, I was really impressed by Botterill/Taylor/Dumont. Botterill forechecked really well all night, and J.P. was a puck hound out there.

Ta,

He was awarded a goal because he was going to be given a penalty shot. So they figured it'd be easier to just give him the goal ..... although I think they should have let him take the penalty shot with the empty net .

That's what I thought it might have been, but I was having a hard time believing they would award him a penalty shot for that. I'm glad they did, mind you, but they hand those things out so rarely anymore.

Thanks for the information.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think even if it isn't penalty shot worthy, it's up to the refs discretion to award a goal if he thinks the player would have scored if there was no infraction. I dont think that warrented a penalty shot, but he clearly would have scored if not fot the trip.

From the rule book, Rule 84, Tripping, sub (c):

"If, when the opposing goalkeeper has been removed from the ice, a player in control of the puck is tripped or otherwise fouled with no opposition between him and the opposing goal thus preventing a reasonable scoring opportunity, the Referee shall immediately stop the play and award a goal to the attacking team. "

This is from http://www.icehockeyrules.8m.com/rulebook/rule84fr.htm
