Kyle Turris has controversial goal called back, Philly rebounds with scoring surge

This play is ruled not a goal for Ottawa after a lengthy review. 5:27

Kyle Turris and the Ottawa Senators were convinced they had taken a 3-2 lead midway through the third period on Tuesday night. 

But upon further review, the controversial and close play was ruled no goal.

Philadelphia Flyers defenceman NicklasGrossman showed off his goaltending skills and robbed Turris on a pass from Bobby Ryan, as the puck bounced between Grossman's skates and, according to the referees, stayed out of the net.

The officials went upstairs and after a lengthy look they ruled it never crossed the line, raising plenty of questions from Senators fans.

Adding insult to injury, just over a minute later, Kimmo Timonen put the Flyers up for good in their eventual 5-2 win.
