Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL blew a call big time during the overtime period of the San Jose Sharks' 5-4 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday, and as the hockey world runs on Twitter, those who stayed up late to watch the game took note of the missed goal that wasn't reviewed:
The Sharks' broadcasters may have seen it, but the Sharks didn't:
The Mercury News's David Pollak reports that no news is no news for now:
Nobody asked the Sharks about what now appears to be a blown call that cost San Jose an overtime goal Tuesday night because the assembled media were not aware of the situation.
But upon further review, it sure looks as if Tommy Wingels poked a loose puck into the net with a little more than three minutes left in OT for what should have been the winning goal. Replays showed the puck crossed the goal line before Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers quickly fished it out and the play was whistled dead.
Yes, there will be follow-up questions asked tomorrow of both the Sharks and the NHL. This isn’t supposed to happen, though there are mitigating circumstances that could explain how it did. @FriedgeHNIC said that the Sharks broadcast didn’t pick up on the missed call right away and the Buffalo broadcast never did — something that might have kept Toronto from jumping in quickly for a review. And none of the Sharks we talked with after the game mentioned it either.
Oh well. Back to the phones tomorrow.
Update: Puck Daddy's Harrison Mooney found a video of the "goal":
