The Pittsburgh Penguins appeared to have the go-ahead goal against the Boston Bruins in the second period, but it was waved off due to what officials declared as incidental contact with the goalie.

Penguins’ center Zach Sill was going to the net, when he bumped into Boston’s goalie Tuukka Rask by Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. Craig Adams’ shot went back a fallen Rask but the goal was immediately waved off, keeping the score 1-1. The Bruins, however, took the lead into the third period.
