Dallas Stars Win Coach's Challenge Against Buffalo Sabres
Twitter was amused.
The Dallas Stars beat the Buffalo Sabres partially due to a waved off goal after the Buffalo Sabres scored to tie the game 2-2 late in the 3rd period on the powerplay. But, the Sabres were just a hair offsides. No Goal was the call in Buffalo.
You may recall that this happened in 1999:
It still counts, and Twitter went savage letting Buffalo know about it.
What 1999 looked like in an alternate universe. https://t.co/W8mnHUeQoo— Adam Gretz (@AGretz) November 18, 2015

No goal in Buffalo. Brett Hull's foot was in the-- I mean Tyler Ennis's foot was over the blue line. #Stars #Sabres #DALvsBUF— Scouting The Refs (@ScoutingTheRefs) November 18, 2015
Irony getting a workout that a no-goal call goes in favor of Lindy Ruff in Buffalo.— Joe Yerdon (@JoeYerdon) November 18, 2015

And just for fun, this was a hell of a call. Well done Amy.
a Stars goal will be challenged and ruled a "no goal" tonight and the city of Buffalo will riot with happiness— Amy (@DalSportsGal) November 17, 2015
Edit: Shout out just now to Craig Ludwig and Josh Bogorad on the postgame show. The line of the night might go to Bogorad for "maybe they can make some bumper stickers."
