  • Overturned Stars goal bails out Mike Reilly and the Wild


    However, immediately following the goal, Dubnyk pointed to the spot in his crease where he felt Roussel was interfering with him. From a couple of angles it looked like Roussel's positioning was harmless, but the overhead view clearly showed that Roussel was much too deep in Dubnyk's crease, not allowing him to make any type of forward move to make a save on the shot.

    The disallowed goal was great on two accounts. It allowed the Wild to not have to chase the game and get in an offensive battle with the league's best offense. It was also good for Reilly, who looked incredibly nervous/shaky in his debut, to not be at fault for the Wild going down a goal. Confidence is key for a puck-moving defenseman, and we need Reilly to trust his instincts. Hopefully, getting through this game unscathed will allow him to relax a bit and play with some more confidence.
