At 11:16 of the second period in the Carolina Hurricanes/Philadelphia Flyers game, the Situation Room initiated video review after the puck entered the Carolina net. The referee informed the situation room that Scott Hartnell slid into Carolina goaltender Anton Khudobin creating incidental contact, preventing Khudobin from doing his job in the crease. This is not a reviewable play, therefore the referee's call on the ice stands, no penalty Philadelphia, no goal Philadelphia.
For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
