As a goalie, i have a hard time equating a high stick that had no real bearing on the goal and a player grabbing onto the tenders pad that clearly allowed the puck to go in...maybe that's just me. Also, high sticks aren't reviewable...grabbing a goalies pad is definitely reviewable.

Well, it's not about being reviewable or being exactly equatable. The penalty should have been called, which means the play that resulted in the goal shouldn't have happened. Edmonton ended up getting a goal they shouldn't have, just like Anaheim. And, it did have some bearing on the goal - Perry wasn't able to get back to his defensive position in a timely fashion, because he had to pick himself off the ice because he got hit in the face with a stick hard enough to knock him over.

Like I said, I'm a goalie and I'm partial to the issues that effect a goalies ability to stop a puck.

My initial question was how the league could overlook the play. Especially because they had a chance to review if from every different angle. I'd hope that the league wouldn't look back at a play earlier in the game and think..."well there was that high stick earlier"

6-1 now still in the 2nd.  Could be a good game 7 to watch.

0 points for McDavid in a 7-1 game.  That's unexpected.

There was a lot of chatter that this incident would throw McDavid off his game.

Even strength score adjusted, McDavid had a sub-40% CF%, one shot on net in 25 minutes of ice time only won 4 out of 11 faceoffs.
