The Nashville Predators had a last-second game-tying goal from Filip Forsberg against the Florida Panthers overturned by the NHL's Situation Room on Tuesday night and it was an embarrassment for the league, which managed to inspire negative tweets from Carrie Underwood, Kiefer Sutherland and eight-time PGA Tour winner Brandt Snedeker. Even if one believes Viktor Arvidsson's stick spun Roberto Luongo around to jar the puck loose from under him, one can't ignore Panthers defenseman Keith Yandle steering Arvidsson with a stick to the midsection, which is contact from a defensive player that would have negated the interference. Oh, wait, actually, the NHL did ignore it, calling Arvidsson's actions "deliberate" in handing Florida the regulation win. It's got to be a goal. ... I don't know what's going on," said Forsberg. "It's so inconsistent that we don't even know when it's a goal or not, but this one was clearly a goal."
