NHL GMs reject proposal on goal challenges @NHLdotcom

Panthers GM Dale Tallon put the item on the agenda but didn't receive much support from his colleagues. Florida lost a game in Toronto this season when the referees missed a blatant goaltender interference call.

Tallon wanted to give coaches the ability to challenge similar plays. He says there was a "lot of conversation" about the proposal but it's a "dead issue."
