In overtime, the New York Islanders appeared to have won on a Mathew Barzal goal. Until it was ruled no goal on the ice and confirmed on review.
For a majority of the game last night, the New York Islanders looked like the better team against a very competitive Boston Bruins team. While many would say that getting one point in that game was good enough, the Islanders truly got hosed out of two points.
In overtime, Anthony Beauvillier is charging towards the net with speed when Jake DeBrusk comes in and with his stick hits Beau’s skate. As a result, both players go flying into the net with Tukka Rask left in net trying to work with two people in his net.
Mathew Barzal then came in and put the loose puck into the back of the net. There seemed to be some confusion at first but after a couple of seconds the refs ruled “no goal”. Here’s the play in question:
The play would be reviewed and shortly thereafter it was confirmed that it was goalie interference. My question is what could Beauvillier have done? He got tripped up that’s what caused him to end up in the net.
Plus, DeBrusk was more of the one who interfered than Beauvillier was. Unfortunately, the Isles followed that up with a brutal effort in the shootout. The four shots were so uncreative with Josh Bailey’s being the worst.
Now the focus is on Saturday’s game back at the Coliseum.
