That’s What He Said…

“I understand you can’t have two goals on one play, but why not? Why can’t you?”

–Toronto Maple Leafs’ coach Ron Wilson following a play in which the Penguins’ Sergei Gonchar scored an undetected goal and just seconds later tripped the Leafs’ Alexei Ponikarovsky, which resulted in refs awarding the Leafs with a penalty shot. However, following a video review, Gonchar was awarded the goal and the penalty shot that had been awarded was retracted, because two goals cannot be scored on the same play.
