MTL @ BUF - 14:41 of the First Period

At 14:41 of the first period in the Montreal Canadiens/Buffalo Sabres game, video review confirmed the referee's call on the ice that David Desharnais' shot deflected off of Dale Weiss' skate and into the Buffalo net in a legal fashion. According to Rule 49.2 "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player's skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal." Good goal Montreal.

Quote of the Day

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.
