At 1:03 of the third period in the Penguins/Canadiens game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Joe Vitale's pass deflected off Pascal Dupuis' 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 Pittsburgh.
That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
