The Instigator |Episode 11

GOAL! Are you Kidding Me!

Listen to “The Instigator – Episode 11 – GOAL! Are you Kidding Me!” on Spreaker

Cam Ward allowed one of the weirdest goals ever last week. The puck was rung around the boards by Arizona Coyotes Alex Goligoski. Ward exited his net to stop the puck. The puck stuck in his skate, and Ward (not knowing where the puck was) slid to the front of the net in order to defend his foot slid into the net. The whistle sounded and the officials counted it as a good goal. I have a big problem with this one counting.

Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.


  1. He hadn”t blown the whistle yet. I watched the video and that”s what they were checking. The linesman was blowing the whistle because he”d lost sight of the puck, but he hadn”t actually gotten quite to that point yet and since you can”t review when the whistle is blown, you have to go by the puck crossing the line and the whistle basically going to the lips and you can clearly see the skate/puck going over the line BEFORE the whistle went to his lips. Going by the rules, I can”t see how they could have ruled it any other way. (I”m just REALLY glad it wasn”t a Caps goaltender.)
