Horribly bad call.

Considering the crap defense on both sides...it's fitting. Both teams suck in their own zone, so why can't the linesman suck too?

Edit: Radek just said it's likely a bad rule interpretation. If a defender carries the puck into his own zone, offsides should then be ignored, and the puck deflected into the zone off a Nashville defender. The defender never had possession thus that rule should not have been in play.
