WPG @ WSH - 14:48 of the Second Period

At 14:48 of the second period in the Jets/Capitals game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Alexander Ovechkin's centering pass deflected off Nicklas Backstrom'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 Washington.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
