At 16:38 of the first period in the Stars/Islanders game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that New York forward Kyle Okposo's cross ice pass deflected off teammate Michael Grabner's skate and went into the net. Good Goal Islanders.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
