Sharks come up empty in overtime

Disallowed goal, missed chances in Game 4 leave San Jose-Nashville series tied 2-2

by Robby Stanley / NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- The San Jose Sharks thought they had won Game 4 of their Western Conference Second Round series against the Nashville Predators at 7:34 of the first overtime.

Sharks captain Joe Pavelski drove to the net, knocked the puck down out of mid-air, collided with Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne and, with the puck rolling into the net, swatted it over the goal line with his stick while on the ice. The goal was immediately waved off; after the officials determined that Pavelski had not knocked the puck into the net illegally, a review by the Hockey Operations Department in Toronto, which handles all situations subject to a coach's challenge in overtime, ruled that goalie interference had occurred when Pavelski made incidental contact with Rinne.
