No one knows what goalie interference is — but, I mean, this, I don’t know, man.
Connor Hellebuyck appeared to have the puck smothered in his equipment until James Neal came in, swinging a big ol’ piece of lumber. Neal nearly beheaded the Winnipeg Jets goaltender, helping pry the puck loose for Erik Haula to slide home for his 19th of the season with the Golden Knights.

Thankfully, that’s just a chunk of Neal’s stick and not a section of Hellebuyck’s Adam’s apple you saw soaring through the air.
