Conclusive explanation it was a goal

This past weekend we've relived the glory and joy that we all experienced 10 years ago when the Dallas Stars won the Stanley Cup. With this celebration, we've also had to hear again how "70% of the hockey world is convinced the goal shouldn't have counted."

As part of their 10 year anniversary feature, DallasStars.com has released some bonus footage from after the game, including this PERFECT explanation for why it was a goal. This comes from Hockey Night in Canada broadcaster Ron MacLean's interview with NHL director of officiating Bryan Lewis on Brett Hull's overtime winner.

That's it. I don't want to see anymore still, overhead photos saying "His foot was in the crease! See! See!! It's not fair!!"

No more. It counted. Live with it.

There's also another great video in the same feature of never before released footage of the plane ride home with the Stanley Cup.
