Logan Thompson checks Jake Guentzel and is surprised when he gets called for it

Midway through an intense third period between the Golden Knights and Penguins, the Penguins had a flurry of offensive chances trying to tie the game, when Vegas' goaltender Logan Thompson left his net and shoved Jake Guentzel trying to return.


On the play, you can see Thompson leave the crease in desperation, trying to get in front of a puck that was bouncing through a broken play. But when Crosby takes the puck behind the net and the threat is gone, you can see Thompson deliver a right-hand shiver to the chest of Guentzel as he returns to his net. A penalty was called on Thompson for interference on the play.

Bad news for Thompson and the Knights, the Penguins were able to score on the ensuing power play. Not only that, the goalscoerer was none other than Jake Guentzel.



The third period power play goal allowed the Penguins to tie the game, and later go on to win in regulation with a goal from Kasperi Kapanen.
