Zach Parise Goal Waved Off Because You Can't Score With Your Hands

The fans aren't happy here in Newark, but this is absolutely the right call by the officials. Zach Parise knocked a loose puck into his own net with his hand, and ... well, that's not allowed. The goal was waved off by the officials and we're still tied at 1-1 in the third period.

Parise never should have had the chance to knock the puck in with his hand. A first-shot attempt by the Devils should have beaten Jonathan Quick, but miraculously it stayed out of the net as Parise just couldn't get a firm handle on the shot.
