At 1:41 of the first period in the Carolina Hurricanes/Ottawa Senators game, video review supported the referee's call on the ice that Patrick Wiercioch's shot deflected off Mika Zibanejad's skate and into the Carolina net in a legal fashion. According to Rule 78.4 "if an attacking player has the puck deflect into the net, off his skate or body, in any manner, the goal shall be allowed." Good goal Ottawa.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
