Flames forward Blake Coleman on disallowed goal: ‘I don’t think i understand the rule.’

The Calgary Flames put a puck past Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mike Smith with 5:57 remaining in the third period of Game 5. The goal temporarily gave the Flames a 5-4 lead, before the goal was overturned by the NHL’s situation room after a lengthy review.

And so the game remains tied. #StanleyCup | #BattleofAlberta

On the goal, Mikael Backlund’s shot squirted out from underneath Smith’s right arm and trickled towards the net. Blake Coleman, skating towards the crease for the rebound while fighting with Cody Ceci for positioning, skated through the crease area and had the puck go off his skate and into the open net.
