At 6:01 of the third period in the Devils/Blue Jackets game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that the puck went in off Columbus forward Jared Boll's skate but was not kicked in. According to rule 49.2 "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player's skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal." Good Goal Columbus.
