Type of Review: Situation Room Initiated Challenge - Goaltender Interference

Result: Original call is confirmed - Goal Buffalo

Explanation: Video review confirmed no goaltender interference occurred as Jack Eichel and Rasmus Ristolainen made a play on the loose puck in the crease. The decision was made in accordance with Rule 69.7 which states, in part, the goal on the ice should have been allowed because "in a rebound situation, or where a goalkeeper and attacking player(s) are simultaneously attempting to play a loose puck, whether inside or outside the crease, incidental contact will be permitted, and any goal that is scored as a result thereof will be allowed."

NOTE: In the final minute of play in the third period and at any point in Overtime (Regular Season and Playoffs), Hockey Operations will initiate the review of any scenario that would otherwise be subject to a Coach's Challenge.
