The purpose of a goaltender is to keep the puck out of the net in any way possible; using a stick, glove, pad, arm, chest, blocker, anything a goalie can legally use.

Initially ruled a goal on ice, they went to review the video and found that the collar of Jones's jersey caught the puck before it crossed the goal line, with the puck resting just above the nameplate.
