At 12:11 of the first period in the Colorado Avalanche/Anaheim Ducks game, video review determined that Avalanche skater Brad Malone's original shot entered the Anaheim net prior to the second attempt that saw him push goaltender John Gibson's pad resulting in the referee's signal of no goal. Because the initial shot completely crossed the goal line, the goal stands. Good goal Colorado.
It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
