At 11:48 of the first period in the Blues/Avalanche game, video review upheld the referee's decision on the ice that Colorado forward Aaron Palushaj's centering pass deflected off Jamie McGinn's left 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 Colorado.
We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
