NHL ROUNDUP : Ottawa Loses Despite Late Goal
They should put (crowd) as the assist after Randy Cunneyworth’s second goal for the Senators on Sunday, but even that wasn’t enough to beat Pittsburgh, which won, 4-3, at Ottawa.
Cunneyworth had pushed the puck barely over the goal line, but the goal light didn’t go on and the game continued for another 3:06.
Replays appeared on arena televisions, and fans chanted for referee Bill McCreary to review the play. When play was stopped because of a penalty, he did, ruled the goal that cut the score to 4-3 and put the 3:06 back on the clock.
Stephane Richer scored 1:36 into overtime to give the Devils a 4-3 victory over the Boston Bruins in East Rutherford, N.J. . . . Alexander Selivanov scored two of Tampa Bay’s five power-play goals in a 6-1 victory at Buffalo. . . . Brent Sutter, Chris Chelios and Joe Murphy scored for Chicago in a 3-2 victory at Winnipeg. . . . San Jose used a three-goal burst in the third period in a 5-3 victory at Calgary.
