First: Replay Denies Sabres Goal Due to Offsides



It may slow the game down a bit (okay, a lot) but if you're all about getting the calls right, the NHL's Coach's Challenge rule is helping the integrity of the game. Now maybe linesman will start making the right call instead of not wanting to disrupt play (hasn't this become the case with a lot of linesmen in recent years?)

In this case it was a very big deal, as it denied the Sabres a tying, and perhaps momentum changing goal in the third period. They would have been tied 2-2, but instead went on to fall, 3-1.
