BUF @ BOS - 18:09 of the Second Period


At 18:09 of the second period in the Sabres/Bruins game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Shawn Thornton's shot deflected off Gregory Campbell's stick which was below the crossbar and into the net.  According to Rule 60.5 "The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick. If the puck makes contact with the stick below the level of the crossbar and enters the goal, this goal shall be allowed".  Good Goal Boston.
Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
