NHL gives horrendous explanation on controversial Bennett goal

Published May 13, 2024 at 10:07

The Bruins were up 2-1 last night when Panthers forward Sam Bennett scored a controversial goal to tie the game at 2.

Bennett pushed Charlie Coyle onto goalie Jeremy Swayman which caused the Bruins goaltender to be unable to make his way across the crease as Bennett put the puck into a wide open net.

The NHL commented on the goal after it was reviewed and the call on the ice stood, stating that Swayman was still able to move in the crease and could have made the save.
