Did A Hand Pass Cause The Bruins To Beat The Devils?

After coming back from a 2-0 hole, the New Jersey Devils took a 3-2 lead heading into the third period. With a little more then 10 minutes remaining, Zdeno Chara caught the puck and fed it over to David Krejci who buried the puck for his third goal of the night. The Devils argued that it should of been a hand pass, and goaltender Martin Brodeur was the first to say he thinks it went unnoticed after the game.

“That third goal, who knows if it was a hand pass or not, but it looked pretty close to us from where we were standing and they missed it,” Brodeur said to Rich Chere of The Star Ledger. “That made a big difference. Chara was jumping up and the first assist was Lucic, so automatically that’s a hand pass.”

If it was indeed a handpass, the goal should have been disallowed and the Devils would of still had a 3-2 lead.

There is no video showing just the handpass, but you can watch the highlights from NHL.com. This specific play begins at 2:36 of the video. Did Chara get away with one here?

Has Chara been talking to Maradona lately?
