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.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
