PENGUINS' MIKE SULLIVAN BELIEVES REFS MISSED CALL THAT LED TO CAROLINA'S OT WINNER

NOV 30, 2022  (9H28)      COOPER GODIN
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.
