Predators’ Ryan O’Reilly Rips Wrist Shot Top Corner For Power-Play Goal

Controversy erupted late in the first period of Game One between the Nashville Predators and Vancouver Canucks, as a power-play goal by Ryan O’Reilly was placed under review. With the Canucks a bit too aggressive on the penalty kill, O’Reilly found himself streaking down the left wing and unleashed a shot that beat Thatcher Demko, the Canucks’ goaltender.

The celebration on the Nashville bench was short-lived, as the Canucks challenged the goal, claiming that Filip Forsberg, stationed in front of the net, interfered with Demko’s ability to make the save. Replays showed a close call, with Forsberg’s stick appearing to make slight contact with Demko’s glove as the puck went past.

The officiating crew huddled at the bench to review the play, with the tension in the building rising with each passing moment. Fans of both teams awaited the verdict, with the potential for a two-goal swing hanging in the balance.
