NYI @ CAR - 14:07 of the Third Period @NHLdotcom

At 14:07 of the third period in the New York Islanders/Carolina Hurricanes game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine how the puck entered the New York net. The referee informed the Situation Room that Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe deflected the puck with a high stick before again playing the puck, thereby ending the play. According to Rule 80.1 "Batting the puck above the normal height of the shoulders with a stick is prohibited. When a puck is struck with a high stick and subsequently comes into the possession and control of a player from the offending team, either directly or deflected off any player or official, there shall be a whistle." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands, no goal Carolina.
