What a scene we had tonight in the PWHL Final, perhaps one of the most heartbreaking sequences in recent history for fans in the state of Minnesota.

It appeared as though Minnesota had won the first ever Walter Cup when Minnesota defender Sophie Jacques appeared to have the series winning goal, a goal that was ruled a good goal initially on the ice.

Although the call on the ice was a good goal, it was also clear that there had been significant goaltender interference on the play. In spite of the fact that the home fans in Minnesota had just celebrated the victory, the ice crew would be forced to clean up the ice as, after a video review, the goal would be overturned for goaltender interference.

Here's a long look at the goal, the celebration that followed, and the heartbreak after the results of the review were announced.

As tough as it was for fans in Minnesota, there's no question that this was the right call.

Instead of Minnesota closing out the series and capturing the Walter Cup, Boston would end the game just minutes later thanks to a goal from Alina Muller to force a final a deciding Game 5 in this series.
