At 10:04 of the third period in the Sharks/Ducks game video review proved inconclusive in determining whether Martin Havlat deflected the puck into the net with a high-stick. Therefore, the referee's call on the ice that James Sheppard shot the puck into the net in a legal fashion stands. Good Goal San Jose.
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. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
