Cherry discussed the play during his segment on Hockey Night in Canada.

Nobody in the NHL currently wears No. 69, so this would’ve been a very unique opportunity for the league to get the nicest number of all the numbers into the lineup. It might be time to propose a league rule: Every emergency goaltender should be required to wear No. 69.
