The Penguins will take it, but the Ottawa Senators were up in arms after a controversial goal by Brenden Morrow opened the scoring on Friday night.
At 6:25 of the first period of Ottawa's 6-2 Game 5 loss
, Morrow drove towards Ottawa's net and redirected a Mark Eaton pass in behind goalie Craig Anderson, in what initially appeared to be a good goal.
But replays painted what appeared to be a different picture.
Upon further review, it looked like Morrow's right skate may have directed the puck in with what arguably appeared to be a forward motion.
The referees disagreed though and deemed it to be a good goal after they went upstairs to review it.
Watch the goal here:
