This is how Canadians striker Brendan Gallagher commented, into the TSN . microphoneThe referees (and the league) decision to deny him the goal he scored in the first half on Thursday night against the Hurricanes.
For many, that goal was too good to be true. Positioned in front of the goal, and slightly past the blue zone without touching the goalkeeper, Gallagher encountered a shot and scored.
