It looks like the on ice Officials made the right call on the play, we have to give them credit when they make the right call on the ice. I do find it funny and puzzling, that Brad Shepherd is reffing such a high profile game for the WCHA. From looking at the video, it's pretty obvious that the stick of Badger forward Joseph LaBate is above the cross bar when he touches the puck.
Referees confirm no-goal after reviewing the play. LaBate with the high stick.

Remember. MN would have needed to established possession in order negate the high stick. Bouncing off is not possession.
