Antoine Roussel scored one of the more bizarre goals you'll see Saturday night in Game 2, flipping a puck over the net and onto the back Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk as he angled his skate at a loose puck deep in the offensive zone.
Miraculously, Dubnyk was able to pin the puck between his back and the crossbar before appearing to back the net off its moorings to earn a whistle. As such, it was originally called no goal. But upon further review, the NHL's Situation Room deemed the puck crossed the goal line in a "legal fashion" before the flexible pegs were pulled out from underneath.
However, it doesn't appear as though the NHL considered Roussel's initial contact, which in the eyes of some - presumably Wild coach John Torchetti - could have been considered a kicking motion.
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Tim Bozon scored the go-ahead goal 17:41 into the third period to lift the St. John's IceCaps to a 2-1 victory over the Hartford Wolf Pack on Saturday in American Hockey League action.

That goal came just moments after Mason made an incredible pad save to rob John Carlson from what would've been his second goal of the game. The 27-year-old netminder was slow to get up after dropping into the splits to make the stop, but he did remain in the game.

Saturday's game was Albany's regular-season finale, meaning any potential suspensions would begin in the playoffs, while Bridgeport still has one game remaining - on Sunday afternoon - before their postseason begins.
The proficient top-line scorer has been out since suffering a 15 percent cut of his Achilles in a March 17 game versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Seguin - who totaled 33 goals and averaged better than a point per game - appears likely to ease back into the lineup for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He did not skate with a normal forward line at Dallas' morning session, or work out of the top unit in warmup.
