At 11:44 of the second period in the Penguins/Devils game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Sidney Crosby's backhand pass deflected off Matt Cooke'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 Pittsburgh.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
