Roenick Shootout Goal Forcing Changes

via the Tennessean,
Jeremy Roenick's goal in Los Angeles' 3-2 win over Nashville on Saturday could result in the NHL allowing shootout goals to be reviewed on video. "I think something will definitely change during the season," NHL Vice President of Operations Mike Murphy said. "It's just how fast can it get done, that's all. This is one of those things that slipped between the cracks when we put the shootout in. You knew there would be problems, but you weren't sure where." "This is the first situation that's arisen," Murphy said. "We're as upset about the situation as anybody, but we have to follow the right process through this in order to do it in the proper way."
Any changes made will have to be approved by the BOG.
