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.
We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
