The rule on the whistle is that, even if the puck had crossed the line BEFORE the whistle blew, the ref can rule it a no-goal if he intended to blow the whistle before the puck crossed the line.
On another funny note, biznasty threw my at the time 3 year old daughter a puck during game 4 warmups of the WCF and it landed straight in my beer. ahh, the memories. He owes me $11.
So we started pelting him in the back with peanuts... after we dipped them in our nacho cheese. The people next to us started doing the same, so he had splotches of nacho cheese all over the back of his jersey by the time the game was over. He thought we were just hitting him with peanuts, I don't think he realized he had cheese all over his back.
