On Sunday night, Juraj Slafkovsky took another step towards the 20-goal mark as he scored his 16th of the season. However, the NHL reviewed the play and credited this goal to Kaiden Guhle.

"Wasn't sure Slaf had touched Guhle's shot from the point, but he appeared quite sure. Hence leading the train to the bench for the celebration.
But NHL switched it to Guhle's goal..."

- Eric Engels

On the goal sequence, it's clear that the puck changed trajectory exactly at Slaf's passage, and he immediately celebrated as if he were the scorer.



Regardless, Slafkovsky still matched a historic mark held by Mario Tremblay in Canadiens' history, thanks to his assist on Nick Suzuki's goal.

"With an assist on Nick Suzuki's goal, #Habs Juraj Slafkovský tied Mario Tremblay (in 1974-75) for the most points by a teenager in a season in #GoHabsGo history and extended his point streak to 7 games!"

- Priyanta Emrith

So, the NHL potentially robbed Slafkovsky of the new record for a 19-year-old in Montreal Canadiens history by taking away his goal, but it's only a matter of time. The Slovak has 24 points in his last 28 games and is on a seven-game points streak. He should surpass Mario Tremblay in the coming days without much trouble.
