TOR @ NYI - 1:32 of the Second Period

At 1:32 of the second period in the Maple Leafs/Islanders game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that John Tavares deflected the puck into the net with a high stick. No Goal Islanders.

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."

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.

— Montreal Canadiens forward Alex Galchenyuk on Alexander Semin
