If you ask anyone in the NHL on most nights they'd tell you that they have no idea what constitutes goalie interference and what doesn't. After the call in tonight's game it's clear that the definition might be more blurred than ever.

In the 1st period of the game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Ottawa Senators, Brent Burns scored a goal that most people felt would be immediately called back. On the play Seth Jarvis appears to collide with Alex DeBrincat and slides into the Ottawa goal.

Jarvis doesn't appear to make much of an attempt to get out of the goal as Cam Talbot struggles to make a save. That's when Burns is able to beat Talbot for the games opening goal.




However further reviews appear to show DeBrincat never pushes Jarvis.


After review the call on the ice was upheld and the Hurricanes were off to a 1-0 lead. Ottawa fans were clearly not happy with the goal, neither were the crew from Spittin' Chiclets.
