Talk about a cruel turn of events.

The Hurricanes took a 3-2 lead over the Capitals early in the third period of Game 6 Monday night through Jordan Staal. 

However, Alex Ovechkin believed he had tied the game at the 10:34 mark, but the goal was washed out due to "goalie interference." 

Suffice it to say, the decision was not a popular one in the DMV.

And moments later, Carolina forward and former Capital Justin Williams scored to put the Hurricanes up two. 

The Canes added an ENG to make the final score 5-2, while Ovechkin was tossed after voicing too much displeasure. 

The Caps and Canes will now face off in a Game 7 Wednesday night at Capital One Arena. The home team has won every game in the series thus far, but D.C. fans are all too familiar with Game 7 heartbreak.
