At 19:01 of the third period of the Dallas Stars/Chicago Blackhawks game, the Toronto Situation Room initiated a review because the puck went into the Dallas net. Video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Brandon Bollig deflected the puck with his stick above the cross bar into the net. According to Rule 80.3 "When an attacking player causes the puck to enter the opponent's goal by contacting the puck above the height of the crossbar, either directly or deflected off any player or official, the goal shall not be allowed." No goal Chicago.
You get the right the 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.
