Yes, Paul Maurice has seen the video. The Canes coach has seen replays of what he calls the Canes' "half-goal" by Chad LaRose in Game 2.
Before coming to the Canes in December, Maurice helped out in the NHL's "War Room" in Toronto where the decisions are made on high — well, from Canada — about goals and no-goals and whether there's conclusive evidence a puck did or did not cross the goal line on a play.
In the final second of the second period Sunday, LaRose had an apparent goal against the Boston Bruins waved off after the puck hit the crossbar, dropped down and bounced around the goal line. After a seven-minute review that felt more like 77 minutes, the call was upheld and the Canes' lead stayed at 2-0.
"I'm a huge fan of replay," Maurice said today. "I still believe it was a goal but the fact of the matter is that shot happens so fast. I understand when the referee doesn't see it or thinks he saw it.
