Tailing the Komets

Did the Komets get a break?

The Mudbugs are saying they scored a goal that no one saw. You can read it here.

I talked to Bob Chase about this today and he said he saw a replay that he believed showed the puck went in. I'm not sure how it's possible if there was no hole in the net. Maybe it is. I don't know. Anybody else ever heard of something like that? I've seen pucks go in and come right back out too quick to see, but not go through a hole in the net.

Yeah, absolutely it can happen. It happened in a Tampa Bay vs. Philly game in the NHL back in mid November. Here's the video:

I played on a roller hockey team with one of the Komets but he wouldnt like it for me to say his name but he shot a roller hockey puck which is way lighter than a ice hockey puck right through a regulation hockey net. they stopped the game and the refs said it went threw. no one could believe it.

Of course I'm not sure if that play made an actual hole in the net or not. They never said after the fact.

bet the Ref didn't talk to the goal judge....seems like this league ignore's the people in the "high-chair" Hey, why don't the official's use our overhead goal camera's?

Because it's not an option in every city.

I have seen some goals this season right in front of me that were not allowed....that could have changed the outcome of at least 2 home games this season.....

It happens.

It all evens out in the end.

Hope everyone is safe during this Blizzard.

The last home against Bloomington We scored in the second period the puck was in and their d man pulled it out and the game continued the ref didn't see it over the line. We who set in the corner in228 saw that it was in. Go KOMETS keep it up guys

It happened at the coliseum vs the Milwaukee Admirals back in the late 80s or early 90s. An Admirals player took a slapshot from the point and the puck went through the net and hit the boards so the ref thought it went wide so it was never counted. Some of the Admiral players saw it though and argued about it but never got the goal. They checked the net but never found a hole. The game was recorded by the Randy and Tim on the public access channel. They showed the replay during the telecast and you can see the back of the net move out like the puck went through it. It was a goal but it never counted.

Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators shot a puck through the net while playing for Team Canada in this past year's Olympics. There was also a shot from a Finnish player that went through the outside of the net and into the goal during the IIHF World Championships in 2008.

Coyote are you talking about Schrock?

As several people have posted, it does happen from time to time. I first saw it at least a few years ago, maybe longer then that, but I don't remember the details. It was an NHL game on TV and replay showed it went through the net and left no hole.

Gonna have to start making those nets with a closer knit.

A couple of years ago we went to an ECHL game in Cinci & sat behind one of the nets. In the 2nd there was a shot from the left point that went through the side of the net, curled around the inside of the goal, and came out on the goalies left. Everyone in the section saw that it went through the net, not in from the front, but the officiating crew counted it as a goal. Between periods, someone asked the goal judge what he thought, and he said that no doubt it went through the side. When asked why he didn't tell the ref., his response was that the ref. didn't ask the right question. He said they aren't allowed to offer their insight unless asked, and then they can only answer specific questions.
