WATCH: Sharks game-winning goal neither seen nor counted
Tommy Wingels' game-winning goal was missed by officials.
The San Jose Sharks were the biggest NHL betting favorites since 2010 entering Tuesday's game with the Buffalo Sabres Tuesday night. The Sharks came back twice after trailing 3-1 and 4-3 in the third period, and they were just about to escape thanks to Tommy Wingels' overtime goal.
Except the goal was not counted.
Wingels mashed the puck past Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, but the on-ice official didn't catch it and, for some reason, the play was not reviewed.
I know NHL is going to get destroyed for no-goal in SJ, but neither broadcast had it quickly and BUF's didn't show it at all. If ref says...— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) November 6, 2013
no-goal on-ice, I'm not sure how that one is getting caught. Not a great moment...but I can see how it happens. Ugh.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) November 6, 2013
What it probably will mean is more reviews coming.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) November 6, 2013
Making matters worse, Buffalo ended up winning in the shootout. No word from the NHL on this one yet but we're sure this story just won't go away. You can't blow games like then when a replay system is put in place.
