Forsberg's game-tying goal just before the final buzzer was called back for goaltender interference. "It's a goal," he said. "It's got to be a goal. ... I don't know what's going on. It's so inconsistent that we don't even know when it's a goal or not, but this one was clearly a goal. The puck was never covered. The goalie had no clue where it (was), and it ends up on my tape and it's in. And they somehow don't think so. I disagree 100 percent." He isn't the only one who has been left in disbelief by controversial goalie interference rulings this year.
