Rangers Vs. Devils, NHL Playoffs 2012 Game 5: Controversial Ryan Callahan Cuts New Jersey's Edge, 3-2

Was it the leg or the skate? The refs said that the puck deflected off New York Rangers' forward Ryan Callahan's leg rather than his skate in the second period to give the Rangers their second goal of the game. That cut further into the New Jersey Devils' two-goal lead to make it 3-2 after two periods of play.

It was a far more aggressive Rangers team on the ice in the second period. New York spent more time in the offensive zone, and put 11 shots on net compared to just 5 for New Jersey.
