In the second round of the Panthers/Sabres shootout, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck crossed the Buffalo goal line. The referee informed the Situation Room that Jonathan Huberdeau used his stick to push Jhonas Enroth's pad and the puck across the goal line, preventing Enroth from doing his job in the crease. This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Florida.
