BUF @ TOR - 5:31 of the First Period

At 5:31 of the first period in the Sabres/Maple Leafs game, video review was initiated by the Situation Room because the puck entered the Buffalo net. Video review supported the call on the ice that David Clarkson used his skate to kick the puck into the net as the referee blew his whistle to stop play. According to Rule 49.2 "A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net." No goal Toronto.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
