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.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
