At 19:50 of the first period, NHL Hockey Operations initiated the review of Devin Setoguchi's goal to determine two aspects of the play: did Setoguchi strike the puck above the height of the crossbar and, if so, did the puck go directly into the net. Video review concluded that, while the puck was struck was above the height of the crossbar, the puck did not go directly into the net as Edmonton goaltender Khabibulin made the save. Setoguchi then shot the rebound into the net. Good goal Minnesota.
It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
