Sporting Charts explains Goal Line Save

A goal is scored in hockey when the puck completely crosses the goal line. If the puck has not crossed the goal line, a goalie can stop or reverse the direction of the puck to prevent it from counting as a goal. When it is difficult to tell whether the puck has or has not crossed the goal line, NHL officials make use of instant replay to confirm disputed goals or saves.
