Based on my rudimentary knowledge of the game, the shot was deemed a goal because it was tipped off of Crosby's stick and then deflected (albeit off Crosby's arm) by himself into the net before the post became ungrounded from its bearings.
With the series at 3-1 in favor of the Penguins, the two teams will head back to Pittsburgh for Game Five tomorrow night at 7 PM EST on Versus.
The front office is calling for a "Whiteout" and the timing feels right for the Penguins to advance to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, especially since 91% of teams leading 3-1 in Stanley Cup Playoff history have gone on to win the series.
The Penguins will most likely face the Boston Bruins
, who hold a 3-0 series lead and are up 4-1 in the 3rd period of game 4 against the Montreal Canadiens
Let's go Pens!
