At 16:58 of the third period of the Flyers/Penguins game, the puck shot by the Penguins' James Neal crossed the goal line and was initially signalled as a goal by the Referee. However, as was directed by the General Managers' at their most recent meeting in March, the officials conferred and determined that it was not a good hockey goal as the Flyers goaltender's left pad was shoved into the net by Neal's stick prior to the puck crossing the goal line. Also, to note, this was a call made on the ice by the officials and this play was not subject to video replay. No goal Pittsburgh.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
