With the Bulldogs leading the Niagara IceDogs 2-1 midway through the second period, the 20-year-old Mississauga, Ontario native got a glorious opportunity to bury his second goal of the night and give his team a two-goal lead as he was awarded a penalty shot. However, that’s when he ended up on the wrong side of a very unusual moment.
Due to the malfunctioning lights, Strome’s goal was called back by the officials after they got together to talk about it. However, they did let him retake the shot, but he ended up getting stopped on his second opportunity.
To make the whole situation even more irritating for Strome and the Bulldogs, Niagara ended up tying the game less than one minute later and eventually went on to win the game 6-5 in a shootout.
As for Strome, he finished the night with two goals and one assist to give him 17 goals on the season and 46 points through 40 games.
