‘Fraser immediately waved off the goal, to the anger of the four Sabres celebrating. He went to the phone for a conference with Toronto, presumably to review whether the puck was in before the net moved. It was, but it didn’t matter. Fraser announced an cross-checking penalty on Gaustad, nullifying the tally. Ruff was incensed. The coach, who usually stands behind the players, hopped in front of them to plead his case (and then some). Again, it didn’t matter. The Canucks were given a two-man advantage.’
