New York Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle thought he’d given his team a 3-2 shootout victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night.

However, Boyle put in his own rebound on the goal and it was disallowed.

Here is the official explanation from the NHL:

In the shootout of the New York Rangers/Pittsburgh Penguins game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck rebounded off the post before it deflected off Dan Boyle’s stick and into the Pittsburgh net. According to Rule 24.2, “No goal can be scored on a rebound of any kind.” No goal New York Rangers.

Brandon Sutter eventually scored the shootout winner for the Penguins.

Blake Comeau and Evgeni Malkin scored in regulation for the Penguins.

Lee Stempniak and Martin St. Louis had the goals for the Rangers, who beat the Penguins 5-0 on Tuesday.

Henrik Lundqvist made 36 saves in the loss while Marc-Andre Fleury improved to 10-3-0 with a 29 save performance.
