Video: Jason Chimera's Game 6 goal had some controversy

You better put your angry hat on because this Jason Chimera goal for the Washington Capitals in the second period on Sunday afternoon has a lot of people upset for a lot of different reasons.

The goal came with less than 50 seconds to play in the second period to tie the game at two. But that's not where the controversy comes in. It was actually a few seconds before that, just as the play was getting ready to break out of the Washington zone.

As the Capitals were getting ready to head up the ice, Chimera circles through the zone just inside the blue line and collides with Bruins forward Brad Marchand. Marchand then flies through air, falls down and remains on the ice as the Capitals go down and tie the game.

Let's watch...

The questions being asked:

1) Should that have been interference on Chimera ending the play and resulting in no goal?

2) Should it have also been a dive on Marchand, something he has developed quite a reputation for this postseason?
