Video: Quick whistle robs Predators of opening goal

46 Comments

There’s no getting around this one: the Nashville Predators were robbed of a 1-0 lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6, and it wasn’t thanks to a stop by Matt Murray.

Murray eventually allowed a puck loose in his crease, which was then deposited in Pittsburgh’s net. Unfortunately for the Predators, officials made a quick whistle/lost sight of the puck, so a would-be Colton Sissons goal was not to be.

In many cases, goalie interference reviews leave some room for debate. There wasn’t much gray area here, though; it was a blown call.

Check it out in the video above this post’s headline. Afterward, you’ll likely understand why Peter Laviolette acted like, well, an angry dad.

Game 6 remains 0-0 as of 12:31 remaining in the second period. You can watch the game on NBC, online, and via the NBC Sports App.
