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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
