Should Kitchener go on to oust Windsor in the OHL semifinal series, a disallowed goal the Rangers' 5-3 win in Game 3 on Sunday will long be rued down in southwest Ontario.
"Windsor head coach Bob Boughner was upset after the game, feeling Windsor should have taken a 4-3 lead with about six minutes remaining in the third period. (Spitfires forward Adam) Henrique put the puck in the net, but it was waved off when Taylor Hall was called for goaltender interference. 'Terrible, terrible, terrible call. We should be up 4-3 there,' said a frustrated Boughner. 'To say I'm frustrated about that goal is an understatement.'
"This is the second time in the series a goal has been called back in similar fashion. In the opening game the Rangers were disappointed when a goal was called back with Chris MacKinnon in the crease."
The breaks even out in hockey. Kitchener just as easily could have lost Game 1 when it had a goal disallowed in regulation before winning 7-6 in overtime.Of course, at this time of year, there are only winners and losers.
