Bruins’ Potential Game 5-Winning Goal Denied By Goalie Interference


The Boston Bruins nearly scored the game-winning goal Friday night in Game 5 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Ottawa Senators.

Noel Acciari jammed a rebound into the Ottawa net in overtime, but the call on the ice was no goal because of goalie interference by Sean Kuraly, who had the initial attempt and appeared to make contact with Sens netminder Craig Anderson.

Let’s look at a different angle.

The play was reviewed and the goalie interference call was upheld.

The Bruins and Senators would play out the rest of the frame to force a second overtime period.

The B’s eventually won 3-2 when Kuraly found the back of the net in the second overtime. It was his second goal of the game.

Ottawa and Boston will play Game 6 on Sunday.
