Masochists: this one is for you. In the first period, Nicklas Backstrom thought he scored what looked to be goal number 13 on the year. Brooks Laich raised his arms in the air to celebrate.
But apparently that raincloud is still following Nicky around.
The official waved no goal, and play continued. The play was reviewed at the next whistle.

At 14:59 of the first period in the Flyers/Capitals game, the Situation Room initiated video review to further examine a play at the Philadelphia net. Video review was inconclusive in determining if Nicklas Backstrom’s shot completely crossed the goal line. Therefore the referee’s call on the ice stands – no goal Washington.
What do you guys think?
