At 7:01 of the first period in the Panthers/Canadiens game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the Florida net. The referee informed the Situation Room the he blew his whistle to stop play and assess a penalty to each team before the puck crossed the goal line. This is not a reviewable play therefore the call on the ice stands - no goal Montreal.
I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
