At 10:54 of the third period in the Blackhawks/Wild game, video review was inconclusive in determining if Bryan Bickell deflected Niklas Hjalmarsson's shot into the net with a high stick. Referee's call on the ice stands. No Goal Chicago.
According to Rule 60.5 "An apparent goal scored by an attacking player who strikes the puck with his stick carried above the height of the crossbar of the goal frame shall not be allowed. The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick."
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
