‘Kovalev played a part as Montreal put the puck in the net on a power play with 1:21 remaining in the third but referee Don Koharski immediately waved off the goal. Video replays showed the puck struck Canadiens forward Michael Ryder and went into the net off his jersey as he drove the crease after Miller made a stick save off Kovalev.’
