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."
