NHL makes scoring change, giving Penguins' Chris Kunitz a 4th goal from win over Capitals

WASHINGTON - The NHL agrees with Chris Kunitz — he scored four goals instead of three in the Pittsburgh Penguins' win over the Washington Capitals.

The league announced Monday that Kunitz has been credited with a fourth goal from Sunday's 6-3 victory.

Replays appeared to show that Kunitz redirected Paul Martin's shot from the point for the game's first goal. The official scorer initially gave the goal Kunitz but later switched it to Martin.

Martin said after the game that he got his stick on the puck.

The change gives Kunitz six goals on the season.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
