Situation Room: Gionta's goal stands after review

Brian Gionta scores on a high deflection, and after a review and challenge for goaltender interference, the call stands as a good goal

  • 01:22 •

At 9:22 of the second period in the Sabres/Oilers game, video review was inconclusive in determining whether Brian Gionta's stick was at or below the level of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the Edmonton net. According to Rule 38.4 (vi) "The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick in relation to the crossbar. If the puck makes contact with the portion of the stick that is at or below the level of the crossbar and enters the goal, this goal shall be allowed." Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - good goal Buffalo.
