So far, the 2014 Stanley Cup Final has provided a lot of things for hockey fans, but it wasn’t until the third period that the series got its first bit of true controversy.
There’s room for debate on that play, but the Rangers likely aren’t happy, especially since Benoit Pouliot received a goalie interference penalty in the second period.
To make this situation a little bit more controversial, Marian Gaborik tied the game up with a 4-4 goal a little less than six minutes later:
This post will be updated if the NHL provides an official reason why that 4-3 goal counted. Regardless, the Rangers need to suck it up or they could find themselves down 2-0 in this series despite having three different two-goal leads.
