The Pittsburgh Penguins took on the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night and the game ended in a controversial way in overtime.
During the extra frame, the puck was over near the benches and Hurricanes forward Seth Jarvis
laid a dangerous hit on Penguins forward Bryan Rust
. After the hit, Jeff Petry
went after Jarvis in defence of Rust, but the puck then comes loose, allowing Andrei Svechnikov
and Brett Pesce
to go in on a 2-on-0, with the latter scoring the game-winner.
Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan let the refs have it after the overtime winner was scored and told reporters after the game that they made a mistake and it should have been a penalty.
"When you saw it from the bench up close and at that speed, that was their reaction. That reaction was real because it was a dangerous hit. So I disagreed with the call," Sullivan said.Jeff Petry
, who as mentioned went to defend his teammate, also though Jarvis was going to receive a penalty for the dangerous hit.
"I thought when I was jumping in the pile there, I thought it was going to be a penalty," he said. "To me, it looked like it was. I don't know - obviously, they saw it differently. So yeah, it's a tough one to swallow," Petry said.Source: theScore
