COL @ BOS - 7:13 of the Third Period

At 7:13 of the third period in the Avalanche/Bruins game, the official closest to the net signalled a goal after the puck entered the Boston net. After huddling, the officials' group consensus declared that Colorado's Ryan O'Reilly deflected the puck into the net with a high stick. Video review was inconclusive, therefore the group decision on the ice stands. According to Rule 60.5 "An apparent goal scored by an attacking player who strikes the puck with his stick carried above the height of the crossbar of the goal frame shall not be allowed. The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick." No goal Colorado.

At the Rink: Jets at Sharks

SAN JOSE -- The Winnipeg Jets will begin adjusting to life without injured forward Evander Kane on Saturday night when they face the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center (10 p.m. ET; SN360).

Kane will be sidelined for at least two weeks and probably longer, but coach Paul Maurice said Saturday he considered that "better news" than he expected.

Kane was injured Thursday night early in the first period of a 6-2 victory against the Arizona Coyotes in a knee-on-knee collision with linemate Mark Scheifele. He underwent tests on Friday.

"Evander's got a lower-body injury that's going to keep him out of the lineup for a period of time," Maurice said after the Jets' morning skate at SAP Center. "He's going to get reevaluated in two weeks and after that it will be on a week to week basis. There's a big area on how long it takes to heal these things up. To be quite honest with you, it's actually better news than I was expecting. I really was not hopeful yesterday. … So, better news, but he is going to be out of our lineup for the near future."

Weekes: Maple Leafs' Bernier under most pressure

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes joined NHL Live from Toronto to give his take on the goaltending around the League entering the first week of the season.

When asked which goalie faces the most pressure on a nightly basis, Weekes brought up Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, but he believes neither is under more duress than Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"The pressure [in Toronto] is immense. You can cut it with a knife," Weekes said. "[The Maple Leafs] don't defend very well. That was something that was their Achilles' heel last season, yielding north of 35 shots per game, very difficult for any goalie to be able to be successful, let alone to be a top-10 guy in save percentage (.923) the way Bernier was under that type of nightly duress from a shot standpoint.

Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green confirmed he will miss the Capitals' season opener against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday because of an upper-body injury.

Green was injured during a preseason game against the Boston Bruins on Sept. 26. 

"More so [coach] Barry [Trotz] just being smart about it," Green told the Washington Post. Trotz said it's possible Green could be ready for the next game Saturday in Boston or definitely next week.
