With less than two minutes to play in the third period of a tie game, Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson appeared to score what would have been the game-winning goal of Game 7 when he joined the rush and blasted a slap shot past Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard.

There was just one problem.

Behind the play referee Stephon Walkom blew the play dead just as Hjalmarsson was cranking up his shot because of coincidental penalties on Detroit's Kyle Quincey and Chicago's Brandon Saad.

Yes, this will be discussed for a while.

Neither team scored over the final minute-and-a-half of the game, sending it to overtime.
