Coyle's goal, which put the Bruins ahead 2-1 early in the second period, was the game's most controversial moment. The puck was gloved out of the air by a Boston skater and Carolina goaltender Petr Mrazek appeared to have smothered it, but it squirted free to Coyle, who sent it into the open net. After video review, it was determined that Mrazek had possession of the puck long enough to negate the potential Boston hand pass.
