At 13:16 of the second period in the Rangers/Capitals game, the Toronto Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the Rangers net. The Referee determined that he had blown the play dead prior to the puck crossing the goal line due to goalie interference. According to rule 78.5 "Apparent goals shall be disallowed by the Referee when an attacking player has interfered with a goalkeeper in his goal crease." No Goal Washington.
At 12:36 of the third period of the Predators/Coyotes game, video review was used to determine if the initial shot by Nashville defenseman Roman Josi crossed the goal line. Video review determined that the original shot did not cross the goal line before the play was blown dead. Call on the ice stands, no goal Nashville.
At 19:21 of the third period in the Rangers/Senators game, video review was used to determine if Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil kicked the puck into the New York net. Video review was inconclusive in determining if Chris Neil's left skate propelled the puck into the net. Call on the ice stands, good goal Ottawa.
At 16:58 of the third period of the Flyers/Penguins game, the puck shot by the Penguins' James Neal crossed the goal line and was initially signalled as a goal by the Referee. However, as was directed by the General Managers' at their most recent meeting in March, the officials conferred and determined that it was not a good hockey goal as the Flyers goaltender's left pad was shoved into the net by Neal's stick prior to the puck crossing the goal line. Also, to note, this was a call made on the ice by the officials and this play was not subject to video replay. No goal Pittsburgh.
At 9:50 of the second period in the Penguins/Flyers game, video review upheld the call on the ice by the Referee that the puck shot by the Flyers' Danny Briere crossed the goal line in a legal fashion. Good goal Philadelphia.

At 8:52 of the second period of the Rangers/Senators game, video review was initiated to determine if the puck shot by Rangers forward Ruslan Fedotenko crossed the goal line. Video review upheld the call on the ice that the puck never crosses the goal. No goal New York.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
