No. 1 Goat: Deryk Engelland, Pittsburgh Penguins
Engelland activated a beacon for the league's department of player safety after hitting Chicago's Marcus Kruger into the boards during the first period of play. The hit ended Kruger's night and caused an immediate retaliation from Blackhawks forward John Scott. While Scott was hit with a game misconduct, a fighting major, and an instigator penalty, Engelland only served a fighting major.Watch the hit below:
No. 2. Goat: Nashville's Powerplay
After finding themselves down 2-0 late in the first period, the Predators caught a break with having multiple power play opportunities, especially in the second period. The Capitals would basically hand the Predators four minutes of advantage time after getting called for too many men and a delay of game penalty. The night ended with a 4-1 Capitals victory but it could have been a very different outcome.

Thanks to PuckDaddy for the video link while I was slacking on the couch…
This is why I like the NHL; a player dishes out what I would classify as a dirty bush league check on an opposing player. His teammate who happens to be trailing the play takes issue with the questionable hit and challenges the offending player to a fight.
In this case Blackhawks heavy weight John Scott, reacted appropriately to the questionable hit, came to his teammates...
