It’s time for another judgment call from you the fans. Atlanta’s tying goal in the third period against Anaheim was credited to Anthony Stewart, giving him a hat trick for knocking in defenseman Dustin Byfuglien’s deflected shot from the point past Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller.
The only catch here is that his teammate Rich Peverley tried to knock the puck down himself in an effort that would’ve been made for a puck hit with an egregiously high stick. The referees didn’t think he hit the puck with a high stick and Stewart’s hit just below the crossbar gave him his hat trick… But were the officials right? Check out the video and let us know in the comments what you think.
