Brind’Amour told reporters after the game that he thought goalkeeper Antti Raanta had been interfered when Bruins striker Jake DeBrusk scored in the second period. DeBrusk’s score equalized the game two, but Boston would go on to win, 5-2.
It looked like Raanta’s pad had been moved into a scrum in front of the net before DeBrusk put the puck into goal. But it wasn’t clear whether it was DeBrusk or a Carolina player who moved the pad, allowing the puck to free itself. Brind’Amour used a challenge but without success.
“I would have bet my life on that. It’s clear, especially the view we saw next [the puck] it’s in its pads and loose, “he said, off ESPN. “But the boy came to the side, pushes the bearings, pops the record out and inserts it. It’s a little different if the guy came in from the front and played the record. You can’t play the record when he’s in between. legs to the side and slam the goalkeeper to the side “.
The NHL rule that confirmed the goal stated: “In a rebound situation, or in which a goaltender and one or more attackers simultaneously attempt to play a free puck, both inside and outside the area, it will be allowed. accidental contact and any goals scored as a result of this will be allowed. “
The Hurricanes were then granted a delayed game penalty.
Boston’s power play turned 5 on 3 after Sebastian Aho cut Patrice Bergeron’s eye. With one second left on power play, Brad Marchand would score his second goal of the match.
“This is what all the kids are hoping for – to have the opportunity to play for that Cup,” Marchand said after the match. “These are the most fun games to play, when there is high excitement, high intensity and the maximum is at stake. If you can’t play these games, I don’t know what you’re playing for.”
Game 5 is set for Tuesday night in Carolina.
