PIT @ PHI - 16:58 of the Third Period
At 16:58 of the third period of the Flyers/Penguins game, the puck shot by the Penguins' James Neal crossed the goal line and was initially signalled as a goal by the Referee.  However, as was directed by the General Managers' at their most recent meeting in March, the officials conferred and determined that it was not a good hockey goal as the Flyers goaltender's left pad was shoved into the net by Neal's stick prior to the puck crossing the goal line.  Also, to note, this was a call made on the ice by the officials and this play was not subject to video replay. No goal Pittsburgh. 
Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
