At 8:43 of the Second Period in the Senators/Hurricanes game video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Jeff Skinner's shot hit the crossbar but did not cross the goal line. No Goal Carolina.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice.
