At 12:42 of the first period, a shot by the Blue Jackets' Jeff Carter hit the back cross bar (in the net) and quickly came back out of the net without being observed by the on-ice officials. The play continued for several seconds before a whistle stopped play. A video review was initiated at the stoppage to determine if Carter's shot had crossed the goal line. Video review determined conclusively that a good goal had been scored. Per League rules, the clock was reset to the time of the goal being scored.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
