NYR @ WSH - 4:46 of the Third Period


At 4:46 of the third period in the Capitals/Rangers game, the Toronto Situation room initiated a review because the puck went into the Rangers net. The referee ruled that he had blown the whistle when Henrik Lundqvist made the initial save and play was dead prior to the puck crossing the Rangers goal line. No Goal Washington.
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
