Situation Room: Reinhart's goal stands after review

The referees review Sam Reinhart's goal to confirm the puck was kicked to his stick before scoring, and the call stands after review

  • 01:03 •

At 5:06 of the second period in the Red Wings/Sabres game, the original call by the referee closest to the Detroit net was "no goal" but after the four on-ice officials huddled, the call on the ice was changed to "goal". Video review confirmed the final on-ice decision that Sam Reinhart kicked the puck to his stick before it crossed the Detroit goal line. According to Rule 49.2 (iii), "A goal will be allowed when an attacking player kicks the puck and the puck deflects off his own stick and then into the net." Good goal Buffalo.
