Everyone should go and check out the goal Cam Ward scored on his own net tonight...

Wow, that's a first.

Pretty wild that the referee never lost sight of the puck that whole time. He knew exactly where it was. He never intended to blow the whistle at all.

Well, Ward didn't have it covered, so good goal.

That was a terrible call. It was no different than the puck being caught up in any other player's equipment. Once again the NHL shows it's a bush league.

The thing is, if the ref can see it, it's still in play. Good goal :P . The same as if the goalie caught the puck, it's in his open glove, but it's in the net.

Yeah i think it really comes down to whether the ref was being truthful that he saw it.  If he did, then its no different than any own-goal.  If he didnt, then the question becomes how much time passed between them losing sight of the puck & Ward putting it into his net. It was pretty fast - he immediately went back to the net & pivoted his leg (and the puck) in, so probably not more than a couple of seconds. Is this is a reasonable amount of time for the ref to be looking for the puck? Dunno.  The point is moot though because the ref claims to have seen it all along.

Embattled Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk will meet with fans at two town hall meetings in the coming weeks as the club attempts to quell public criticism in the midst of a disappointing season.

General manager Pierre Dorion will also participate in the meetings, he told a conference call for season ticket holders Friday.

If the ref claims to have seen it all the time then he knew it was caught in the skate and should have called the play dead. If Ward didn't put his foot in the net would the puck have been free game for players to hack/slash at his foot? Probably not. The puck was 'frozen' by the goalie. Terrible call.
