By now I am sure everyone has seen Colorado Avalanche Forward Nazem Kadri's OT GWG to put his team within one win of a Stanley Cup and up 3-1 in the series. While also being sure that everyone has seen the controversy following his goal in post game press conferences and all over social media.
The controversy was sparked by Tampa Bay Coach Cooper's post game press conference where his no comment sent the internet into a blaze of fury trying to figure out what he was alluding to.
While certain still images make it appear as if Colorado had too many man, the same images show the Tamps Bay had two extra men on the ice as well just as close to their bench as the Avalanche's Nathan Mackinnon was.
There is also the case of an alleged official score sheet generated by the NHL that many people are claiming to be the "smoking gun" piece of evidence in this controversy. But NHL analyst Mike Johnson of TSN and NHL Network was quick to debunk this argument last night.
So if this was an official scoresheet from the NHL then it appears it was made in error as the player it claims to indict was not even the player in question as pointed out by Johnson. Lets also not forget that Tampa Bay has been on the other end of calls like this before in recent playoff history...
What do you think about this goal call? Its too late to change anything now but should it have been overturned or was the right call made? Let me know in the comments and in the poll below!
