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 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.
