Morning Free Association: We Have a Series

Nashville won their second game of the series last night at home, tying up the Stanley Cup Final at two-games-all.

The first goal against Pittsburgh by Calle Jarnkrok was challenged by Mike Sullivan for goaltender interference.

After the game, Penguins goaltender Matt Murray was asked if he felt he was interfered with.

Sidney Crosby netted the equalizer just over a minute later. But that would end the Penguins scoring.

Last night’s surprise game-winning goal came early in the second period when Frederick Gaudreau, wrapped around the net and slid the puck under Murray’s stick.

The goal was not called on the ice but rather by the situation room in Toronto. Here’s the official statement:

At 4:20 of the second period in the Penguins/Predators game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine Frederick Gaudreau’s shot at 3:45. Video review determined that Gaudreau’s shot crossed the Pittsburgh goal line. According to Rule 38.6 “In the event that a video replay shows a goal was scored prior to the play being stopped, the Video Goal Judge will inform the Game Timekeeper and Official Scorer of the time and the amount of playing time left to be reset on the game clock and penalty time clocks (if applicable).” Therefore the clock is reset to show 16:15 (3:45 elapsed time) and good goal Nashville.

Sneaky goals are fun.

Nashville got two more goals from Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg (EN) to ensure the win.
