At 13:07 of the third period in the Panthers/Sabres game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the Buffalo net. The referee informed the Situation Room that the play was stopped due to an injury to a Florida player. This is not a reviewable play therefore the call on the ice stands - no goal Florida.
That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
