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 spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
