No goal, Jarkko

18 March 2012, 10:45

The video goal judge was called into action on Friday in the 45th minute of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semi-final series between Traktor and Ak Bars. The episode concerned an apparent goal by Ak Bars forward Jarkko Immonen which would have leveled the score at 2-2. The KHL Refereeing Department has scrutinized the incident and confirms that the officials were correct to disallow the goal for high-sticking, as the video evidence shows that when Immonen took the shot his stick made contact with the puck while it was above the level of the crossbar.
