Controversial Decision Overturns Goal in NHL Overtime

During the recent overtime between the Oilers and the Sabres, an important moment came when the NHL's video review system led to a controversial decision.
The game's turning point was when Buffalo Sabres' defenseman, Owen Power, appeared to have scored. However, the celebration was short-lived as officials annulled the goal post-review, the reasoning being an offside violation.

Late Offside Call Sparks Debate

Interestingly, the offside call was made well after both teams had went back to their locker rooms, sparking debate. A link to the moment can be viewed here:
Elliotte Friedman shared his astonishment via a tweet, stating:
"Wow, after both teams left the ice, review found Sabres were offside. They had to come back and finish."

Fan Reactions and Ongoing Debate

This incident has reignited the ongoing debate regarding the fairness of overturning goals due to offsides identified in video reviews, especially if the initial call was missed during live play. Several fans took to X to voice their dismay and frustration over the decision.
The controversy brings to light the ongoing discussions about the implications and fairness of video reviews in crucial game moments.
