When Charlie Coyle unleashed a potential game-tying shot with just three second left, everybody on the Minnesota Wild was convinced it had gone in. Just look at them all raise their sticks in unison. I mean, how could that shot have possibly not gone in?

Well, it didn’t go in because Flyers goalie Michal Neuvirth somehow got his stick into perfect position, deflecting the puck onto the ice. After an extensive review, it was determined that the puck baaaaaarely didn’t cross the line, and the Flyers picked up the full two points.
