Penguins steal point from Rangers after reversed shootout goal
After 65:00 of play, the Rangers and Penguins went to the shootout tied at two in Pittsburgh. After five shooters and a goal for each team, Dan Boyle made the most of his chance, burying a shot past Pens goalie Marc-Andre Fleury and giving the Rangers two points on the night.
Or so everyone thought.
While the New York bench emptied toward the locker room, officials reviewed Boyle's would-be game-winner, determining that puck bounced off the post and back off the shooter before going into the net, nullifying the goal. From NHL Hockey Ops:
The Rangers filed back onto the bench for a fourth and wholly unexpected round of the shootout in which Brandon Sutter potted a goal against Henrik Lundqvist. Fleury found redemption, stoning Rick Nash's attempt and giving Pittsburgh a second point -- one that New York thought it was leaving the building with.
AV after no-goal in SO: "half the guys had their sweaters off, half the sticks were packed. It wasn't a good goal. It was the right call."— Steve Zipay (@stevezipay) November 16, 2014
