In what was a very close, hard-hitting Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Nashville Predators were absolutely robbed of what clearly should have been the first tally of Sunday night’s matchup.
Ater Predators forward Filip Forsberg drove to the net, teammate Colton Sissons dove and poked the puck past the goal line and into the open net. The only problem was a referee inexplicably blew his whistle while the puck was sitting in the crease next to Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Matt Murray.
Since the play did not involve an offside nor a possible goalie interference, there was nothing the Predators could challenge on the play.
The Twitter universe seemed to agree that this call was the wrong one. One former Penguins defenseman weighed with a good observation of the mistake.
The Penguins went on to win the Stanley Cup with a 2-0 win, making them the first back-to-back champions since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings.
