At 4:08 of overtime in the Stars/Kings game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Los Angeles forward Mike Richards' shot deflected off Jeff Carter's shoulder and into the net. According to Rule 78.4 "if an attacking player has the puck deflect into the net, off his skate or body, in any manner, the goal shall be allowed." Good Goal Los Angeles.
Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
