The San Jose Sharks clinched a playoff spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 5-2 defeat of the Los Angeles Kings Monday.
NHL official Wes McCauley may have clinched his place in viral video lore.
McCauley, following a video review at 16:41 of the third period, announced a goal that was deflected into the Kings' net off the skate of Sharks forward Melker Karlsson was a legal play. He added dramatic pauses to his announcement and finished with an emphatic, "We got a goal," while pointing to center ice.
McCauley's announcement spent part of Tuesday morning as a top trending topic on Twitter.
