Video: Taylor Hall scores for Oilers?

Sep 14, 2013, 11:14 PM EDT

Taylor Hall scored for the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Or did he?

Hall was given credit for a goal against the Calgary Flames in exhibition play when a look at the replay shows the puck did not appear to cross the line.

Hall’s initial shot deflected off the shoulder of Flames goalie Karri Ramo, bounced in the crease and was cleared off the goal line by the defenseman.

    Great way to start out the NHL season for the refs…

      They don’t review goals in the pre-season. It’s not a big deal. The refs in the NHL do a great job.

        I know they don’t, but if you watch the video the first replay shows he is in the process of pointing on the first bounce, not even touching the red line yet. OK I’ll stop now because ya it is preseason. Can’t wait til the games start counting!

        Hey sometimes the refs make mistakes. I’ve got news for you, sometimes the players do to. Until you make the refs and players robots their will always be mistakes. It’s part of the game.

    Did not appear to cross the line? Its pretty obvious the puck didn’t cross the line. Thankfully such a play would be reviewed during the regular season….

    LOL. That didn’t take long. It’s preseason for the refs too, I guess.

    Someone should really keep stats on refs. Would be interesting to see who the standouts are.

    Props to Butler on that save on the line. That’s just good defensive hockey.

    Refs are also evaluated during the pre-season. This will be a mark against him. When a ref does badly enough consistently enough he ends up not being a ref.

    Great save by the D man.

    The refs evened it out in the shootout where Hall scores and they called it a no goal.
