CHI @ BOS - 5:41 of the Third Period

At 5:41 of the third period in the Chicago Blackhawks/Boston Bruins game, the Situation Room initiated video review after the puck entered the Chicago net. The Situation Room supported the referees' group decision on the ice that the net remained in its proper place when Patrice Bergeron's shot crossed the goal line. Initially, the referee closest to the net had waved off the goal, but after consulting with the other officials, the referees' group decision was a good goal. Video review supported that group decision. According to Rule 78.4 "The goal frame shall be considered in its proper position when at least a portion of the flexible peg(s) are still inside both the goal post and the hole in the ice". Good goal Boston.

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.
