For Flyers coach Dave Hakstol, his reaction to a goal that wasn’t was over the line, pardon the pun.
He thought the Flyers deserved better than a 5-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.
Especially a Sean Couturier goal that was overturned on a goalie interference challenge:
“We dug ourselves a hole, but the big thing is we dug out of that hole,” he said. “Yeah, it’s frustrating. The first overturned goal, those are judgment calls and I don’t get involved in second guessing them or anything like that. I thought it was a goal, but they’ve got to make that call when they watch it and that’s a judgement call. The last one though, I watched the puck go over the line and it’s 100 percent a goal. I don’t know how that’s missed. That bothers me because our guys fought their rear ends off tonight to get back into this thing and tie this thing up. We tied it up. It’s there. I just watched it on our own video in the coach’s room. It’s clear as day.”
