Thursday night's contest between the Chicago Blackhawks and Montreal Canadiens ended in unique fashion.

The clubs went to overtime tied 2-2, and Blackhawks forward Philipp Kurashev sprung free for a breakaway in the extra frame. Mike Hoffman chased him down and hit him from behind, sending the pair crashing into Habs goalie Sam Montembeault.

Officials reviewed the play to determine if the puck crossed the goal line. The referee quickly announced that the goal was good, but then added that the play was under a second review to see if it was offside.

The goal was eventually confirmed, giving the Blackhawks a 3-2 win.

"We've got to be 0/10 on those calls," Canadiens head coach Dominique Ducharme said postgame, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels. "Definitely hard to swallow."

Meanwhile, Kurashev added that he went through all of the emotions while waiting through the two reviews.

"I was YES, and then NO again. I was just hoping they're going to count it," Kurashev said, according to The Athletic's Mark Lazerus. "And thank God they did."
