Penguins' Chris Kunitz's goal waved off (GIF)

The Pittsburgh Penguins wasted no time getting things started against the Philadelphia Flyers. Penguins forward Sidney Crosby was breaking in on goal just 15 seconds into the game and got a shot off.

Flyers goalie Ray Emery made the save and it landed in front of the goal between the circles near the hash marks. Chris Kunitz back-hands a shot on goal and Emery saves that shot as well. As Kunitz is crashing the net the puck falls at his feet and goes in the back of the net.

19 seconds into the game mind you. The Penguins players celebrated what looked like a goal.

Referees reviewed the play and waved off the goal. I’m going to assume because it looks like Kunitz kicked it in. His right foot is moving forward as the puck bounces towards his feet.
