Canada robbed of goal and penalty shot, defenseman covers puck in crease

latvia-hand-saves-goal-canada

Canada was robbed of a goal in the third period of a 1-1 tie with Latvia when defenseman Kristaps Sotnieks used his glove to cover the puck before it went over the goal line. The puck didn’t cross the goal line, but it very blatantly should have been a penalty shot. This could come back to haunt the Canadians, especially with goalie Kristers Gudlevskis playing so well.

So close, yet so far.

The potential for a penalty shot is not reviewable for those wondering.
