At 15:41 of the third period in the Blue Jackets/Blackhawks game, video review upheld the call by referee Dean Morton that Columbus Blue Jackets forward Derick Brassard kicked the puck into the net with his right skate. According to rule 49.2 "a goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net". No goal Columbus.
[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
