BUF @ TOR - 19:59 of the Second Period


At 19:59 of the second period in the Sabres/Maple Leafs game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that the puck deflected off John Michael Liles' 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."  The official timekeeper ruled that there was 0.7 seconds left on the clock when the puck crossed the goal line. Good Goal Toronto.
Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
