Sergei Gonchar takes a slapshot...the puck appears to either hit the post then cross bar, or the post then the bar in the back of the net...then bounce away from the Toronto goal.
The insuing pass and then chase for the puck results in Alexei Ponikarovsky heading toward the Penguin goal with a breakaway. At the last second, Gonchar gives Poni a hook.
Fleury stops the puck...the ref motions for a penalty shot.
The play is reviewed and sure enough, Gonchar's shot was IN (and then quickly out of) the net.
The clock is WOUND BACK to the time of the Gonchar goal and the Pengiuns lead 2-1.
Wait...Gonchar is IN THE PENALTY BOX?
Under what circumstances, can a penalty be called on Gonchar, if the penalty is a direct result of a breakaway, that by the rolling back of the clock, NEVER occured in the first place?
I can understand a scenario where a penalty would be called...say two guys break out into a fight...or someone gets injured because of a hit (maybe)...but in this case...with the infraction occuring as a direct result of the goal that WAS NOT called correctly, how can a penalty be given to Gonchar?
It makes no sense to me.
