At 11:29 of the second period in the Devils/Maple Leafs game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that the puck went off Martin Brodeur and then deflected off Phil Kessel's right skate and into the net. 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 Toronto.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
