Video- Patrik Elias Hand Pass Bounces Off Of Kari Lehtonen To Damien Brunner - Goal

You would think the goal would not be allowed but truthfully I don't know the rule on this.

The NHL Situation Room only ruled on this and no mention of a hand pass....

Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Dallas net. Video review showed that the net was displaced after the puck crossed the Stars goal line. According to Rule 78.4 "The goal frame shall be considered in its proper position when at least a portion of the flexible peg(s) are still inside both the goal post and the hole in the ice". Good goal New Jersey.

Watch the goal below...

Videos- Cam Atkinson Relieved He Can See After Taking A Skate To The Face

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers,

Blue Jackets right wing Cam Atkinson has a nasty slice running across his right eyelid and down his cheek, yet he was counting his blessings after a 4-1 loss to Anaheim on Friday in Honda Center.

At 10:34 of the third peirod, Atkinson was inadvertantly kicked in the face by the right skate blade of Ducks center Ryan Kesler, when Kesler's leg kicked up behind him as he reached ahead of him for the puck.

Atkinson dropped to the ice, and a small pool of flood formed before Blue Jackets' trainer Mike Vogt could reach with with a towel. He walked quickly to the dressing room under his own power and was immediately seen by Ducks medical personel.

About 30 minutes after the game, Atkinson emerged from the trainer's room with two loose bandages and a bag of ice over his right eye.

"I can see," Atkinson said. "Thank God I can see.

"It went right across my eyelid. If it goes through my eyelid ... "

Florida’s Potential UFA’s Off To A Slow Start

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

The Panthers were counting on substantial production from four players who likely would financially benefit from putting up big stats.

Through the first six games, only one of Florida's pending free agents has done so.

Sean Bergenheim is tied for the team lead with two goals. Scottie Upshall has just one assist while Tomas Kopecky and Tomas Fleischmann have yet to register a point.

All four signed four-year deals with the Panthers in 2011 that expire after this season. 

"There is no concern from me because I think they are playing well,'' coach Gerard Gallant said. "To me, it doesn't matter who scores the goals but what's important is who competes and plays hard every night. These guys are working hard. I know they want to score goals but when you win, that takes care of everything else.''

Will The Carolina Hurricanes Try To Cut Some Salary?

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

Peter Karmanos is known as a budget-conscious owner. If things don't improve dramatically, the likelihood increases Karmanos puts heat on rookie general manager Ron Francis to trim the payroll that current stands at $66.2 million (according to capgeek.com). This seems somewhat obvious given the fact the Hurricanes invested money this season to put together a more competitive team.

Francis will preach patience, soundly supported by not having his top two centres, a crippling blow for any NHL club. The longer Carolina waits to make a significant deal, the more money that is paid down in salaries, which may not be budget friendly, but could lure a larger collection of bidders - including cap-strapped contenders - if a key piece like (Eric) Staal is legitimately in play.

What we know at this point is; Staal is not going to be the one to come out and say he wants out.

Peter Chiarelli On Zdeno Chara’s Injury

from Caryn Switaj of BostonBruins.com,

"This is completely different, separate, isolated from the other ligaments that are more critical in the maneuvering of the knee, so good news is, it's isolated to that ligament," Chiarelli told media during the press conference.

"Bad news is he's out 4-6 weeks. Might be a little earlier than four weeks, but a conservative time frame would be 4-6 weeks."...

"Well, it's obviously a blow," said Chiarelli. "He's one of the premier defensemen in the League, but I'd rather have it 4-6 weeks than 4-6 months."

The good news is that as of right now, Chara will not require surgery for his recovery.

"Right now, it's not a likely option," said Chiarelli. "But as you said, anything can happen. Anything can happen with anything, so I mean, I can't give you a 100 percent statement, confirmation, really on any injury."
