I think it's a goal... It is a goal!

Rangers 2, Penguins 1
After 2 scoreless periods where the Blueshirts piled on the shots, but couldn't get any joy, Blair Bets tipped in a shot from the point at the start of period 3. Did we think that a single goal was going to be enough against Sid the Kid, et al? No, of course not. Pittspuke tied it up with a few minutes to go, and it was looking like the boys were destined for yet another 1 goal decision in ot/shootout. But with less than a minute to go, Jaromir Jagr led a rush into the offensive zone, threw a backhand pass to the slot, where it was deflected by a Penguin defender toward the goal. But did the puck go in?! The Rangers seemed to think so, (see above photo) and after a lengthy review, the replay official agreed! The only angle that showed the puck over the line was from the goal cam. When goalie Jocelyn Thibault lifted his pad, the puck was a couple of inches within the goal line. We never saw the puck actually crossing the line, but hey, I'm not arguing!
7th place is good for a YAY!!
LET'S My Family Crest GO My Family Crest RANGERS!
