|Marian Hossa Video: Watch Hossa Score Controversial Goal|
GOAL! Or wait, was it one?
Hossa appears to score the second goal of the game for Chicago, but a closer look reveals he kicks the puck and it slides across the goal line. The Blackhawks players jumped for joy and St. Louis was outraged.
They reviewed the goal and still counted it. Patrick Sharp told reporters that the goal gave them the edge in this game.
"It got the momentum back for us. Both 'Hoss' and I didn't think it was in, but the ref was standing right there and he pointed. I guess it was a 50-50 chance."
However, Blues goalie Ty Conklin didn't feel the same way, saying, "It was a close play, but the puck never crossed the line. I was sitting there watching it, and I knew it wasn't over."
I'm with Sharp on this one. It's a 50-50 shot and you have to go with what the refs rule. They reviewed it and didn't over turn it. They have the final say and you have to go with it.
The goal certainly had an impact on the game and the Blues. Chicago needed the victory, as they are in eighth place in the Western Conference.
