Winnipeg Jets at Minnesota Wild – October 10, 2013

The Wild opened the scoring in Thursday night’s game with a goal set up by a nice passing play between Matt Cooke and Jonas Brodin.   Cooke’s shot from the slot was stopped by the Jets goaltender, but the rebound bounced off of Brodin’s stick and into the net.   The play was reviewed to ensure the puck was not batted in with a glove.

 

From the NHL:

At 7:39 of the first period in the Jets/Wild game, video review supported the referee’s call on the ice that the puck deflected off Jonas Brodin and into the net in a legal fashion. According to Rule 78.4 “if an attacking player has the puck deflect into the net, off his skate or body, in any manner, the goal shall be allowed.” Good goal Minnesota.

The Wild went on to win the game 2-1.
