In the Leafs vs Panthers thrilling conclusion, Nick Cousins netted the series-clinching goal, but not without a touch of controversy.

The goal featured a pivotal play by Radko Gudas, who seemed to impede Leafs forward Calle Jarnkrok's stick, an action that raised more than a few eyebrows. Gudas' maneuver effectively stopped Jarnkrok from making a potential goal-saving play.
Martin Biron, former NHL netminder and an insightful voice in the hockey world, suspects this incident might act as a catalyst for rule modifications in the forthcoming season.
Biron's belief is echoed by numerous other ex-players who have expressed their view that the league needs to address this kind of gameplay more seriously.
The anticipation is that we'll see a shift in how officials handle such situations, driven by the widespread sentiment among players and fans alike that such acts should be more diligently policed.
Although the Leafs may feel hard done by this season, the silver lining could be an opportunity for the league to learn and improve from these recent incidents.
