PIT @ PHI - 16:58 of the Third Period
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. 
Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
