At 10:17 of the third period in the Lightning/Rangers game, the NHL Situation Room initiated a review because the puck was shot into the Rangers net. The referee determined that the whistle was blown prior to the shot. This is not a reviewable play, therefore the referee's call on the ice stands. No goal Tampa Bay.
You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
