The Chicago Blackhawks are so angry about a disputed shootout goal during Sunday’s loss to Minnesota that they’ve asked the NHL to add the issue of video review to the agenda at the board of governors’ meeting next week.
A possible shootout goal by Denis Arkhipov, Chicago’s third shooter, was disallowed Sunday after a video review. Minnesota goalie Manny Fernandez stopped the initial shot, but what’s at issue is whether or not the puck then trickled over the goal-line. The Hawks lost the game 4-3.
On Monday, the Blackhawks took the unusual step of releasing a statement to the media.
“In light of the situation that took place at the conclusion of last night’s game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild at the United Center, the Chicago Blackhawks have asked that the topic of video goal judging and the goal review process be added to the agenda at the board of governors meeting which will take place on Jan. 23 in Dallas during the all-star break,” the Hawks said in the release.
