DET @ VAN - 6:08 of the First Period

At 6:08 of the first period in the Red Wings/Canucks game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Detroit forward Pavel Datsyuk's centering pass deflected off Justin Abdelkader's skate and into the net. According to Rule 49.2 "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player's skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal." Good Goal Detroit.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
