Video- The Boston Bruins Win In OT By A Penalty Shot Goal Not Without Controversy

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

Sometimes, the video is hard to decipher. And sometimes, it shows an official blowing a call in hard-to-believe fashion in full high definition.

Such was the case Saturday night in TD Garden, as Brad Marchand scored on a penalty shot gifted by referee Brad Watson with 2:28 left in overtime to give the Boston Bruins a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

After intercepting a Rasmus Ristolainen pass just outside the Buffalo blue line, Marchand tried to break into the Sabres’ zone. Ristolainen closed from Marchand’s left rear and the Boston center quickly lifted the Buffalo defenseman’s stick out of his hands into the air as the puck slid ahead of the pair. Ristolainen tried to put his right arm on Marchand and appeared to miss him before landing a two-hand shove to the back as goaltender Robin Lehner poke-checked the puck away.

Watson’s arm went up to signal a penalty and the Sabres were stunned to see him point to center ice. Marchand scored on the backhand and Lehner was among several Sabres barking at the officials after the goal ended the game. The goaltender even chucked his helmet to the ice in disgust.
