Bruins' Cassidy: OT penalty that led to Ryan goal 'demoralizing, disappointing'

Bruce Cassidy does not appear to be a fan of how Game 3 was officiated in overtime.

The Boston Bruins interim coach watched as forward Riley Nash was called for roughing in the extra frame right after taking an apparent elbow to the head courtesy of Ottawa's Bobby Ryan.

Here's a look at the play in question:

To make matters worse, Ryan scored the game-winning goal on the ensuing power play, leading Cassidy to say this after the dust settled.

"The call was terrible," Cassidy added, per NESN. "Let's face it, we all saw it. I don't agree with the call but they called it and we've got to kill it."

As Cassidy pointed out, the inability to kill the penalty is on the Bruins, questions about the call notwithstanding.

Game 4 is set for Wednesday in Boston.
