During the Florida Panthers versus Tampa Bay Lightning game, a highly controversial call resulted in a goal being overturned during a pivotal moment in the series.

Tonight's game 5 between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers is critical, as the Panthers lead the series 3-1. With the Lightning fighting for their life, and for all intents and purposes, this era of dominance, they are now facing another setback. During the first period, a Tampa Bay Lightning goal was called back after review for goaltender interference. The goal would have put the lightning up by 1.
Anthony Cirelli's goal is overturned after review.

The controversy surrounds whether or not Anthony Duclair interfered with Sergei Bobrovsky. Obviously, the NHL and the review team in Toronto believe that he did, with enough fervor to meet the 'clear' evidence required to overturn a goal. However, fans don't share that opinion.
Literally no contact but it's interference but other teams goalies get steam rolled and they say it's fine 🤷🏼‍♂️ this league makes up the rules as they go

This type of controversial call has the power to change the tide in a series. Taking a goal away from the Lightning could prove detrimental if they fail to get on the board for the remainder of the game.
At this time, it remains a 0-0 game, and the Lightning are still at risk of playing their final two periods.
