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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
