You'll never see another game quite like the epic Russia-U.S. showdown last week at the Sochi Games.
The czar of international hockey is determined to make sure of that.
A would-be winning goal by Russia was disallowed late in the third period of the game, setting up an unforgettable shootout won when American T.J. Oshie scored for the fourth time on six attempts.
The Russian goal, a slap shot to the top corner from Fedor Tyutin, was disallowed because seconds before it went it, U.S. goalie Jonathan Quick, sliding across the crease, had knocked the net off its peg by mere centimetres.
That's the rule in international hockey - even if just slightly off the mooring, play must stop dead.
But that rule must now be changed, IIHF president Rene Fasel vowed Wednesday.
It will be changed to "the way it is done in the NHL," where even if the net is raised or moved but part of the flexible pegs remain inside the posts, play is not whistled dead.
The referee who made the call, correct as per the rules, was Brad Meier. He's an American and has been vilified by Russians on social media and targeted with a relatively passive protest at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.
