At 6:20 of the 2nd period in the Predators/Flames game the referee blew the play dead during a scrum in the Nashville goal crease area. The issue of whether the puck crossed the line or not was not subject to video review because the referee, citing rule 69 of the rule book, deemed that Calgary Flames forward Tom Kostopoulos interfered with Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne, impeding him from making a save .
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
