No, because Lundqvist isn't a **** who goes 30 feet out of the crease in his game. They baby the **** outta goalies, so any sort of tap, even if the goalie's are outside of the crease get called.
probably because even when a goalie is outside of the crease it is still goalie interference if you hit him.
69.4 Contact Outside the Goal Crease - If an attacking player initiates any contact with a goalkeeper, other than incidental contact, while the goalkeeper is outside his goal crease, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed.
A goalkeeper is not “fair game” just because he is outside the goal crease. The appropriate penalty should be assessed in every case where an attacking player makes unnecessary contact with the goalkeeper. However, incidental contact will be permitted when the goalkeeper is in the act of playing the puck outside his goal crease provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such unnecessary contact.
but hey, don't let facts get in the way of your *****ing.
I can't stand when people say "but he was outside of the crease"
