Bruins fans go ballistic again after another terrible non call

The fireworks continue TD Garden earlier this evening after the referees during the Bruins -Panthers game dropped another non call against the Bruins. The non call was over goaltender interference involving Panthers forward Sam Bennett and Bruins centerman Charlie Coyle.

The play in question was in the Bruins zone when Sam Bennett was about to receive a pass to which he crosschecked Charlie Coyle into Jeremy Swayman. This caused a wide open net allowing him to score his goal. Immediately, the Bruins bench challenged the goal as it was clear that Coyle was interfered Which means the goal should have been disallowed.

The rules stated clearly that if a defending player is fouled upon by the attacking player Causing interference with his own goaltender the goal should be disallowed.

Bruins fans irate after another non call in two games

After the goal stood, Bruins PA announcers reigned down message is not to litter the ice with garbage and other objects as this had happened last game when another Panthers call was missed and the Bruins received the penalty instead.

Even some former NHL stars weighed in on the non call including former defenseman PK Subban who could not understand why this was not called back.
This series has been nothing short of electric with so many storylines in so much dislike for each others team that it's likely the Panthers will finish off the Bruins going home in Game 5.
