VAN @ LAK - 10:06 of the Third Period

At 10:06 of the third period in the Canucks/Kings game, video review supported the referee's call on the ice that Mike Richards deflected the puck into the net with his stick carried above the height of the crossbar. According to Rule 60.5 "An apparent goal scored by an attacking player who strikes the puck with his stick carried above the height of the crossbar of the goal frame shall not be allowed. The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick." No goal Los Angeles.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
