DET @ MIN - 8:33 of the First Period


At 8:33 of the first period in the Red Wings/Wild game, video review determined that the puck was kicked into the net by Minnesota Wild forward Nick Johnson's skate as he tried to control the rebound. According to rule 49.2 "a goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct motion to propel the puck into the net". No Goal Minnesota.
Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
