Linesman makes offside call from Penguins bench

Here we see linesman Jonny Murray getting knocked into the bench and still making an offsides call. From the bench!

Being a referee or a linesman in the NHL seems like a pretty thankless job. Everybody hates you -- players, coaches, fans -- and you're probably going to get in the way at some point.

Like linesman Jonny Murray during the second period of Wednesday's Penguins-Rangers game when he was knocked into the bench.

But good news! It didn't stop him from making the offside call.
