Canucks sweep the Blues on the back of a controversial disallowed goal

Canucks sweep the Blues on the back of a controversial disallowed goal. If you didn't catch it, here's my summary. The St. Louis Blues have tied the game at 2-2 in the second period after being down 2-0. The puck goes to Luongo and he makes a pad save. In the ensuing scrum, Luongo's pad goes into the net and a Blues player pounds the puck in. The goal is disallowed due to the play being whistled down. There is absolutely no question that the puck is in (white between puck and goal line), and it is absolutely clear that Luongo does not have control of the puck (it is never trapped under his pad, or his glove, or anything like that). The view of the puck is not obstructed from above the net, so one might reasonably think that the referee is able to track it and not whistle the play down early. However the play is whistled down early and the Blues are robbed of the lead. The game is decided in overtime - a 3-2 decision.

The Canucks have been stealing games in this manner all season - it is infuriating. Luongo gets too much leeway and too much respect from the referees. What do you guys think?
