At 4:47 of the first period in the Flyers/Predators game, video review determined that Nashville forward Gabriel Bourque kicked the puck off Philadelphia goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov and into the net. According to rule 49.2 "A kicked puck that deflects off the body of any player of either team (including the goalkeeper) shall be ruled no goal." No Goal Nashville.
I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
