HUGE momentum swing that put the leafs in control of the 1st when they were previously in trouble. Habs were dominating the Leafs' zone, Gionta stripping him just setup a great scoring chance. Whoops, blow the whistle, phantom penalty, bring it down to the other end, puck is in the back of the net 5 seconds later.
