The Washington Capitals defeated the Red Wings 4-3 in overtime on Monday night, after the Wings were up 2-0 in the second period, Capitals forward Nic Dowd caught them by surprise when he scored two goals in eleven seconds.

But what if the second goal wasn't legal, and the referee knew it? The puck seemed to look like it hit the netting above the boards, meaning the play should've been blown dead, the referee even had his whistle to his lips but froze for a minute and the Capitals scored.

The Capitals coaches, staff, goaltender and even fans were going crazy after witnessing this, and they are not too blame- a huge flaw in the NHL's system was shown, and Red Wings head coach Lalonde sure let that be known.
(Husso) said it hit the netting, He was adamant it hit the netting. It hit the netting. It's just unfortunate, probably a flaw in the system. Our guys know it hit the netting. Ville's 100% adamant it hit the netting. But they're not giving us a feed. They keep replaying the goal, so it's really frustrating. It's a flawed system. I don't know what we're trying to do here. They kept doing it back and you could see it go over the glass and common sense is it hit the netting. We ran into a situation last year in the playoffs against Florida where you knew it hit the netting but nobody could see it. Ultimately they made the call it hit the netting. It's inconclusive.

I think even the ref knew it hit the netting, That's why he gave us as much time as he did. But it's inconclusive. It is what it is. It's frustrating because it went against us tonight, but the fact that our goalie is adamant it hit the netting, our guys are adamant it hit the netting but we don't get a feed from it? It's a broken system. It is what it is."

This is something that has to be addressed by the league, meaning a change needs to be made of some sort as this would have affected the outcome of the game.
