MIN @ TOR - :47 of the Third Period


At :47 of the third period in the Wild/Maple Leafs game, video review determined that Joffrey Lupul's pass deflected off Mikhail Grabovski's right skate and into the net.  According to rule 49.2 "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player's skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal."  Good Goal Toronto.
Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
