Found October 28, 2013 on Days of Y'Orr:
The "Delay of Game" penalty has plauged the NHL since it's inception. It bit the Bruins in the ass Saturday night when Patrice Bergeron inadvertantly put the puck over the glass and put Boston 6-on-3 against New Jersey. Here's the video, curteosy of Dafoomie. If you haven't ever been to Dafoomie's channel, that's ashame. He continually posts Bruins highlights the night of a finished game. Subscribe to his channel, you won't be disappointed.  The Devils eventually scored the game winning goal with about 45 seconds left on the clock. The rule itself is pretty cut and dry, from NHL.com:  "When any player, while in his defending zone, shoots or bats (using his hand or his stick) the puck directly (non-deflected) out of the playing surface, except where there is no glass, a penalty shall be assessed for delaying the game.

The Dreaded Two Goal Lead! BRUINS LOSE

I really have now words for the game I watched last night. After the first period, we all thought the game was over - and apparently so did the Bruins.
