The NHL rulebook says that a player cannot come to a completely stop during a shootout attempt. For anyone who wants to see just how confusing that rule can be, Danny Briere had an attempt where it looked like he may have crossed the line. The play was reviewed by the war room in Toronto and was ruled a legal goal—a decision that not everyone agreed with when it was announced. The Devils eventually won the shootout (4-3 final), thus minimizing any potential fallout from the questionable call.
Here’s a look at the entire shootout from the Devils/Flyers game—including Briere’s controversial goal.
