Jonathan Quick robs Oilers' Connor McDavid to preserve Kings' victory

Monday October 26th, 2015

In the waning moments of the Edmonton Oilers’ game against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday, Connor McDavid found himself on the doorstep of a gaping net with the puck on his stick and a chance to erase a 3-2 deficit and send the proceedings to overtime. The vaunted rookie sent a backhander toward the goal line but veteran Kings goalie Jonathan Quick had other plans, flashing a bit of leather-fueled larceny with just five seconds left in the third period.

Referees called no goal on the ice and video review provided no definitive angle that showed the puck crossing the goal line. 

The controversial play proved to be even closer on replay than live action, though the Kings were able to skate out of Edmonton with their fifth straight win.
