GIFS: Ottawa players show frustration, anger after Montreal's OT game-winner
It just kept getting louder and louder in Montreal as the Canadiens rallied from down three goals to the Senators with less than four minutes left to play, tying the game and forcing overtime. The last two goals were hotly disputed by Ottawa.
Senators goalie Robin Lehner complained that Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban was in his crease when David Desharnais scored the tying goal in the final second. When Habs blueliner Francis Bouillion tallied the OT winner after the play arguably could have been blown dead, the Senators boiled over.
The crushing goal ended up in Ottawa's net after Montreal's Max Pacioretty fired a harmless shot and the puck disappeared in Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner's pads before squirting out. Bouillon drove it home to give the Canadiens a stunning win. However, Lehner and several other Senators were incensed by the ruling.
Lehner yelled at the official who didn't blow his whistle even though the puck may have been out of his sight.
Enter Bobby Ryan. The Ottawa forward, who was on the ice and close to the play, chased after the officials, who were going to review the goal. Ryan had to be held back.
And despite the fact that the game was over, Ryan received a game misconduct for his actions. Meanwhile, Lehner was visibly frustrated, smashing his stick.
Lehner also slammed his stick into the glass, but before the moment of impact, the television cameras cut away.
