Through video review, NHL Hockey Operations confirmed referee Brian Pochmara's call on the ice that Boston's Nathan Horton's shot completely crossed the goal line before the puck was swept out by Montreal defenseman Jaroslav Spacek 14:38 into the first period.
Video review was used to determine if the puck crossed the line before time expired in the second period. The official burn-in clock on the overhead camera had time expired before the puck crossed the line. No goal.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
