With the third period of their pivotal Game 7 showdown winding down and Chicago locked in a 1-1 tie with Detroit, Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson hit a clutch goal to put his team up 2-1 over the Red Wings.
The goal, however, was called off by ref Stephon Walkom. Just as Hjalmarsson was shooting, coincidental penalties on Chicago’s Brandon Saad and Detroit’s Kyle Quincey were called well away from the play.
It appears that Quincey leveled Saad into the bench, igniting the scuffle which drew the fouls and negated the goal.
Do you think it was a good call? Sound off in the comments below!
