At 11:53 of the first period in the Canadiens/Capitals game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a deflection by Montreal's David Desharnais. Video review was inconclusive in determining whether Desharnais' stick was above the level of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the net. Therefore, the referee's call on the ice stands. Good goal Montreal.
I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
