NSH @ STL - 8:54 of the First Period

At 8:54 of the first period in the Nashville / St. Louis game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that David Legwand kicked the puck into the net. No goal Nashville.

According to rule 49.2 "A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net."

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
