At 1:35 of the third period in the Predators/Canadiens game, the official located behind the goal line signaled goal. After the referee's huddled, they determined that Lars Eller's shot did not cross the goal line. Video review was inconclusive in determining whether or not the shot crossed the goal line, therefore the referee's group decision that the puck did not completely cross the goal line stands. No goal Montreal.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
