‘The game was decided in the opening minutes of the third period when the Sabres, down 2-1, appeared to tie it after Mike Grier poked a loose puck at the side of the net behind Emery. The shot appeared to trickle over the goal line, and referee Kevin Pollock ruled it a goal. His call was overturned when officials required five minutes to review the play. Video replays showed the puck never completely crossed the line before Ottawa’s Brian Pothier fished it out.’
