3/18/16: Officials conferred and determined Scott Gomez used hit glove to bat the puck into the net, reversing the call of a good goal

  • 01:42 •

At 3:53 of the third period in the Senators/Sabres game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Buffalo net. The original call was "good goal" but after the on-ice officials conferred with one another, they determined Scott Gomez used his hand to bat the puck into the net. Video review supported the final on-ice decision in accordance with Rule 67.6, which states that"a goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who bats or directs the puck with his hand into the net." No goal Ottawa.
