In Tuesday night’s game between the Lightning and Canadiens, Tampa defenseman Radko Gudas blasted a shot that appeared to ring off the post behind Habs netminder Carey Price.  At the time, referee Mike Leggo (#3) waved it off on the ice. At the next stoppage in play, the officials took to the airwaves to review to call with the assistance of the NHL’s War Room in Toronto.
