Bobrovsky, Vasilevskiy and the reactive-glove Reverse (VH)

InGoal Magazine has been presenting the Reverse-VH (RVH) post-integration technique and its variations since it was popularized by Jonathan Quick during his run to the 2012 Stanley Cup. Recently, we’ve been noticing a new variation, best demonstrated by Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky during the 2nd period of a 2-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 19, 2017: The sequence begins as a simple power play setup behind the Blue Jackets’ net. Zach Werenski (8) picks up the puck on his forehand, and is challenged by a lone forechecking Lightning forward, Yanni Gourde (37). Werenski decides to drop...

Nearly halfway through the 2017-18 NHL season, it’s fair to say that the Vegas Golden Knights, who currently sit atop the Western Conference standings, have far exceeded anyone’s reasonable expectations.

Instead, Kane became the latest NHLer to have a goal disallowed on the basis of goalkeeper interference. Following a scramble to Price’s right, Buffalo’s Ryan O’Reilly (90) collects the puck behind the net and sends it to Zemgus Girgensons (28) at the right point....

Raanta-ing on questioning obvious goalie interference call

In the heat of last season’s playoff run, InGoal ran a deep dive trilogy into the NHL’s goalkeeper interference rules. (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3). The goal was to present the reasons why consistent rulings were paramount to competitive fairness and player safety, and even make a few suggestions about how the NHL could streamline the process and ensure that everyone’s best interests were represented in the replay review system. Our hope was that, by presenting and interpreting a myriad of video examples, and closely examining the wording and intent of the Official Rules, the NHL fanbase...
