Mike Ribeiro goal inconclusive on replay in Preds game against Islanders (Video)
Tim Peel on the phone with the Toronto situation room on a reviewed goal? Yesssss.
This happened in the Islanders 4-3 win over Nashville on a Predators score Thursday. Check out the goal by Predators forward Mike Ribeiro:
Conclusive? Not quite via video! Here is the explanation from the NHL:
At 10:16 of the third period in the Islanders/Predators game, video review was inconclusive in determining whether the puck was deflected by a high stick before it entered the New York net. Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - good goal Nashville.
Video review inconclusive so they go with the call on the ice? Sounds like a Peel game. But in all sincerity when you look at it on review, it was very close and hard to tell.
The goal could have meant something. It made the game 3-2 in favor of the Islanders in the third period. Nashville then tied it up before Brock Nelson notched the game-winner at the 13:52 mark of the third. It’s now five straight losses for the Central Division leading Predators, a season-high. And it won’t get any easier for Nashville with a West Coast trip coming up after a Saturday game against Winnipeg.
