At 6:04 of the first period in the Islanders/Hurricanes game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Mark Streit's shot deflected off Brad Boyes' 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 New York.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
