Game 1 of the Pittsburgh Penguins-New York Rangers second-round series is going to overtime, following a controversial goal in the second period.
James Neal was credited for Pittsburgh’s second goal of the evening, although the Rangers protested that Evgeni Malkin, positioned in front of the New York net, knocked the puck out of the air with a high stick and into the net.
From the NHL’s Situation Room Blog:
At 13:28 of the second period in the Rangers/Penguins game, video review determined that James Neal’s shot crossed the New York goal line in a legal fashion, never touching Evgeni Malkin’s stick. Good goal Pittsburgh.
The Penguins evened the score after falling behind New York by two goals in the first period (the Rangers’ second goal came after a ‘questionable’ offside call, and their opening goal came on just the third shot of the game).
