At 18:17 of the third period in the Canadiens/Lightning, the referee ruled on the ice that Tampa Bay forward Ted Purcell's clearing pass deflected off Victor Hedman and into the net in a legal fashion. Video review was inconclusive. Good Goal Tampa Bay.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
