U.S. women's star Knight proud to shoot 'Like A Girl'

NEW YORK -- Hilary Knight was one of an estimated 114 million-plus people in America watching Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1. And like many of those people, Knight was tuned in when Always aired its #LikeAGirl ad, part of its campaign to help instill confidence in young girls and tear down stereotypes.

For Knight, joining in was a logical next step.

"It was sort of a no-brainer to get involved with the campaign," Knight told NHL.com. "When I was growing up, 'play like a girl' or 'you shoot like a girl,' whatever it is, sort of had a negative connotation to it.

"After seeing the Super Bowl for the first Always 'Like A Girl' campaign, it really changed my view on the 'like a girl' phrase, and the tagline that they're using now."

MAPLE LEAFS SNAP ROAD SKID WITH BIZARRE FINISH IN FLORIDA

Nazem Kadri and Peter Holland scored in the third period to rally the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers, their first road win since Dec. 31 (at BOS), snapping a franchise-record 16-game road losing streak.

* Panthers goalie Al Montoya surrendered all three goals after starting the second period in relief of starter Roberto Luongo, who left the game due to injury. Montoya, however, was injured early in the third period, but remained in the game for more than 10 minutes following a brief delay.

* Luongo eventually replaced Montoya after putting on his gear for a second time. Before that though, the Panthers thought of using forward Derek MacKenzie as a replacement in net and, after receiving approval from the NHL, dressed goaltending coach Robb Tallas, who played 99 NHL games with the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks from 1995-2001.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
