Devils fans throw beer cans on ice after NHL umpires recalled New Jersey’s third goal

New Jersey Devils fans weren’t happy when the umpires disallowed a goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs and threw beers and other objects on the ice in frustration.

The Maple Leafs, who were 2-0 in the third half with 11:07 left over the Devils, a team on a 13-game winning streak, returned to their dressing room to avoid being hit by the debris.

Erik Haula, who netted against Toronto, took to the ice to tell fans to stop throwing things so they can continue the game.

Some fans at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ didn’t get the news.

It was the game’s third Devils goal to be called back, this time with Haula kicking the puck, which appeared to bounce off his stick and net for a shorthanded goal.

The first time the umpires called off a goal against the Devils was a Jonas Siegenthaler shot that saw Nathan Bastian disrupt Maple Leafs goaltender Matt Murray. The referees immediately called it no goal.
