TOR @ MTL - 5:50 of the second period


At 5:50 of the second period of the Maple Leafs/Canadiens game, video review upheld the referee's call on the ice that Montreal forward Max Pacioretty kicked the puck into the net.  According to rule 49.2 "A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net.". No goal Montreal.
Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
