Watch: Predators Have Two Goals Disallowed Nine Seconds Apart

Ducks goalie John Gibson has been spending a lot of time on the ice tonight. On his arse, to be more specific. But it has been productive time because it seems like each time Nashville crashes the crease and puts Gibson on the seat of his pants, Nashville and its fans suffer a heart-crushing, momentum-slaying wash-out.

Twice in the third period, in a nine-second span, the Predators had goals waved off. That didn't please the fans at Bridgestone Arena, who threw some debris on the ice after the second wash-out. Not the classiest of moves, but can you blame them? When you live with your team you die with it.

If you're scoring at home, both calls appeared to be correct. Neither player was pushed into Gibson, and both took him out of the play before the goal was scored (full video of both above). In today's NHL, goaltender interference is frowned upon, and we think that's a good thing.
