Video: Goc, Kreider combine for odd sequence

May 11, 2014, 8:36 PM EDT

It’s pretty difficult to argue that any other game in this New York Rangers – Pittsburgh Penguins can compare to the pure energy of Game 6. Simply put, it seems like there hasn’t been a dull moment.

Of course, when the pace ramps up and the emotions increase, mistakes and wild sequences can happen. The second period featured quite the remarkable set of events as Penguins forward Marcel Goc celebrated a near-goal and then Chris Kreider drew a Rangers penalty with a much-criticized goalie interference penalty.

It’s quite the dizzying set sequence of events:

Really, though,┬áthis exchange between Derek Stepan and an official in the first shift on Sunday’s Game 6 might have really set the tone of oddness and absurdity:

If the first two periods are any indication, this could be one of the most exciting games of the second round.

    Controversial? Please he shouldn’t have followed through with the elbow and the ref wouldn’t have called it

      Wrong !

      • claudegirwho - May 11, 2014 at 9:46 PM

        Does he or does he not lift his elbow?

      • 7mantel - May 11, 2014 at 9:48 PM

        Nope, Fleury did a good job of selling it !

        Your blind then when you lift your elbow like that it shows your trying to go through someone instead of avoiding contact. Name one goalie that doesn’t try and sell the call.

        #1 he was pushed into him. am I right? #2 I said he did a good job of selling it.

        Even if your pushed in you still have to avoid contact as much as possible sorry I have to explain that to you

      • 7mantel - May 12, 2014 at 6:38 AM

        Explain to me if your pushed into the goalie from a foot away, how you can avoid running into him.

      The call was made. However I need to ask this question. When you fall, d you try to brace yourself or do you just face plant? I know I throw my arms out to try & brace myself. I’m not going to pretend to know what Kreider was thinking in that split second.

    Claudegirwho you must be crazy! You’re whining as much as your pu$$y captain! Enjoy the off season starting in a couple of days!

      I already feel bad for you because you live in a $h!t state.

    Don’t understand how it’s controversial.. Kreider follows through with his elbow, simple as that.

    Take off your yellow and black goggles for a second, There was no “follow through” with the elbow on that one. ButT the refs have been calling any contact with the goalie on those types of plays all playoffs long, and thats why it got called. Not because of a “follow through with the elbow”. Not really sure how a player is supposed to avoid that when he is pushed, but as long as they are consistent with calling it, then I have no issue with it. And I think they have been.
