AHL Admits OT Goal Should Not Have Counted

While waiting for a line change,  Mike Kostka dumped in what seemed to be an innocent chip-in from the red line off the glass.  Toronto goaltender Ben Scrivens, who had put on a magnificent performance, left the comfort of his goal crease to play the puck.  The puck took a disastrous bounce to the back of Toronto’s net.

Friday  the American Hockey League released a statement saying that a Norfolk player was offsides and there was a misunderstanding between the on-ice officials.  The American Hockey League does not have instant replay at all, however, they do review all goals after the game.

The on-ice officials included two NHL contracted referees—Jean Hebert and Swedish referee, Marcus Vinnerborg.  The linesman were two AHL veterans. The Toronto Marlies and the Norfolk Admirals will lace up the skates and do battle once again tomorrow night in Toronto.  The game will be broadcasted all over North America.  Could tomorrow be the crowning of the 2012 Calder Cup champions or will the Marlies survive and move on to game five?
