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.
It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
