Video Review at 1:57 of the 3rd Period in the Minnesota/Ottawa game confirmed the referee's ruling on the ice that Minnesota forward Nick Johnson scored a goal during a goal mouth scramble. The puck was conclusively determined to be entirely over the goal line.
I got a chance to play a thousand games and that's pretty special to me. To get a thousand [points], it's a great accomplishment. I'm not going to hide my feelings, I'm proud of that. To do it on a win, do it on a goal, I think it makes it special.
