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.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
