Judge for yourself: Was Drouin’s would-be 1-0 goal offside?
To start the seemingly pivotal stretch, Andrei Vasilevskiy made an outstanding save on Evgeni Malkin on what sure looked like a scary chance.
The play swiftly shifted from the Tampa Bay Lightning’s end to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ side of the ice, and it seemed like Jonathan Drouin scored a big 1-0 goal in Game 6.
As it turns out, the goal was disallowed thanks to an offside goal review.

The general feeling among those who don’t have a horse in the race is that it was the right call. (Lightning fans were, uh, not happy.)
Drouin is the guilty party on the offside. We're talking fractions and frames of a second, but skate is in the air and entering foot offside— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) May 25, 2016
