San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues had an epic battle. It ended with a scoreboard that read 5-4 and the win was awarded to the Sharks.
However, the final point that was scored during overtime was controversial, drawing criticisms from fans across the globe. Timo Meier used his right hand to toss a puck towards the net, which was received by Nyquist and finally Karlsson scored past Jordan Binnington.
The Sharks have claimed that it was a great win for them. However, the guys at the Blues are clearly enraged at this result. They questioned the reason why the game was not stopped when Meier used his hand instead of the hockey stick.
The officiating supervisor of the NHL has said that even though it may seem unfair, but the game is not up for review. This sparked off a debate about whether some adjustments need to be made regarding the rules.
