With the game tied at four, and with five minutes left in the third period, Toronto goaltender Jonathan Bernier made a huge save on Detroit forward Drew Miller to help preserve a point for the Leafs, who eventually lost 5-4 in the shootout. Watch the full shootout here. (it featured a flying poke check by Jonas Gustavsson and a beautiful goal by a shootout specialist, Pavel Datsyuk).
Some say there should have been a penalty on the play, as Bernier throws his stick towards the puck.
"53.1 Throwing Equipment – A player shall not throw a stick or any other object in any zone. A player who has lost or broken his stick may only receive a stick at his own players’ bench or be handed one from a teammate on the ice (see 10.3)." - NHL.com Official Rules
