OTT @ PHI - 2:59 of the Second Period


At 2:59 of the second period in the Senators/Flyers game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Brayden Schenn's shot deflected off Wayne Simmonds' face and into the net. According to rule 78.4 "if an attacking player has the puck deflect into the net, off his skate or body, in any manner, the goal shall be allowed." Good Goal Philadelphia.
Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
