Finland thought that they had won the gold medal on Petra Nieminen's overtime-winner, but the celebration in Helsinki was cut short in controversial fashion after the goal was waved off following a lengthy review, which deemed there was goaltender interference on the play. The USA would later go on to win the game in a shootout.

its a clear no goal, the goal keeper would have saved it easily if it wasn't for the hit from the first player.

Obviously. But Rigsby had no place to be outside the crease on a play like that. The contact was incidental which, outside the crease, is not goalie interference.

The referee was from Canada like she didn’t count it because Finland beated Canada like that was a clear goal

I do agree that the goal was good. Finland was robbed.

That's baloney. I read that the video ref was German. And, you can bet that the vast majority of Canadians were cheering for Finland in this game. I was. Canadians will cheer for anyone but Americans.

i guess im the only kracker here that thinks this was interference, seems like the ref had her hand up for a penalty before the puck went in too

They called a trip on an American, but it was definitely goalie interference. 1. Her left leg was still in the crease when contact was made. 2. Even if out of the crease, at no time is a goalie ever fair game to be hit.

Why would the refearies wave off a winning goal, in teams home arena and in over time and in a fuking final. Finns had started to celebrite and USA had won 5 times in a row so it would not hurt them so much.

I understand the call, it was a 50/50 situation in the most important game of the tournament, they had to make the call quick and any way it went would be controversial, now it went this way . Its hockey at its best and worst like always

USA's goalie had her foot in the crease when they made contact which makes it a good call no goal for Finland

Finland were robbed of a deserved gold here. How could the US golie get a penalty (which she did) if they decided that thevreason for the goal not to be allowed was that SHE was run over??? Totally inconsistent and unfair.

According to IIHF Playing Rule 186 v. Goaltender and Goal/Goal Crease Disallowed: An attacking skater who makes contact other than incidental with a goaltender who is out of his goal crease during game action will be assessed a minor penalty for interference. If a goal is scored at this time, it will not count.

If it been the other way around I wonder how sportsmanlike Team USA would have acted . The Finns showed so much class and composure; its disgusting how team Finland wins the game but ends up losing the gold because of incompetent Review officials.

If a goalie dives out of their crease and gets bumped when the player is going for the puck that isnt goalie interference. Sickening this was called back. Finland are the real champs!

The European hockey world has been putting up with similar 'Officiatin'(?) since the 50's. The Russians especially have had to take second place far too many times because of Pro-America Officiating. A move should be organized to reverse this most obvious travesty of justice, which always seems to benefit the West!

She was out of her crease and the contact was incidental. Actually, the goalie put herself in the line of the skater when she tried to catch the puck.

The foot was still in the paint the reason the goalie was out of the net was the shove. In women’s hockey there is no contact as in that way allowed if a goal is scored it would be not counted.

That call was a joke and a farce!! This is the biggest issue in hockey today. Nobody knows anymore what players can do near goal crease. These calls are all different from each other, sometimes the goals are waved off and sometimes they are not. These things happen in NHL, KHL, world championship games, European national games, everywhere. The rules for the goalie interference need to be more clear and the same for every league!

1:25 Goalie never had the pock and Finnish forward hit her extendet hand. And allso tryed to awoid her intierly. Rule no1 is that goalie stay between the pock and goal no mater what. And if you don’t get posesion of the pock stick on that spot and prepere for rebound. US goalie did non of this and lose her eyes from pock. Bad goaltending. Only prevideo wiewing saved her.

True confessions: I am not even a hockey fan and common sense told me this goal was good. This is one of those cases where it's hard not to believe that some refs secretly just get off on being a "tough person" buzzkill. This call makes no sense. 'Nuff said. These poor girls did not deserve this. As a human being, stuff like this makes me lose faith in humanity.

Finland played a very physical style but sometimes they took it too far. If the forward just skated around the goalie there wouldn't have been a reason to even discuss interference. Instead she almost skated through the goalie which you're not allowed to do. And also I have to say that the result was karma coming back to bite them in a way. They played well against Canada in the semi-final but they also knocked a Canadian player out of the game by pushing her from behind and head first into the boards. If you play that way, the hockey gods will strike back so I shed crocodile tears for Finland on that call.

This interpretation of rules should courage all the goalies in the world try to skate as fast as possible on the ice in the hope of collision. This is just madness, the goalie interfered the attacker.

This is unbelieveable, hockey is falling apart, goals beeing waved off for nothing is getting more and more common, almost every game. THIS WAS A 100% GOAL! FINLAND GOT ROBBED! USA, shame on you for buying the referee, if im not mistaken, wasnt the referee even from the US? SHAME ON YOU! *GoT BELL* SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

Why the review at all? The ref had her arm up immediately to call a penalty when the scorer hit the goalie. I think the review was to take blame off the ref for ruining a good goal.
Caleb White

A little information. Just because a goalie is not in the blue doesn't mean a hit on a goalie isn't a interference call. It's the biggest misconception in hockey that when a goalie is a bit out of their crease, they're fair game to receive a check.
