In the last few minutes, the NHL has announced a significant change to note regarding the second goal scored by the Montreal Canadiens.

The young Juraj Slafkovsky had his 5th goal of the season:


But the goal has just been removed from his record by the NHL.


«The NHL has just corrected the 2nd goal of the match. It is now attributed to David Savard with assists to Pezzetta and Slafkovsky.»

- Via Luc Gélinas, from RDS

An announcement that is not unanimously accepted among the fans, as many seem convinced (in the comments) that the puck indeed touched Slafkovsky.

It's up to you to judge:


Slafkovsky, 19 years old, therefore still has 4 goals in 39 matches this season. (14 points in total)

As for David Savard, this is precisely his 4th goal of the current campaign.
