CHICAGO (CP) - The Chicago Blackhawks are so angry about a disputed shootout goal during Sunday's loss to Minnesota that they've asked the NHL to add the issue of video review to the agenda at the board of governors' meeting next week.

A possible shootout goal by Denis Arkhipov, Chicago's third shooter, was disallowed Sunday after a video review. Minnesota goalie Manny Fernandez stopped the initial shot, but what's at issue is whether or not the puck then trickled over the goal-line. The Hawks lost the game 4-3.

On Monday, the Blackhawks took the unusual step of releasing a statement to the media.

"In light of the situation that took place at the conclusion of last night's game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild at the United Center, the Chicago Blackhawks have asked that the topic of video goal judging and the goal review process be added to the agenda at the board of governors meeting which will take place on Jan. 23 in Dallas during the all-star break," the Hawks said in the release.

As it always does when video replay is used during a game, the NHL reviewed the play from its Toronto office.

"We took a lot of time and we made a decision based upon our experience dealing with 1,400-plus games a year over the last nine years," Colin Campbell, the NHL's director of operations, told The Canadian Press on Monday. "A lot of times these calls are so close and so difficult that one party isn't going to like the result of our call."

The Hawks insist it was the wrong call.

I watched the game live, and I actually don't think the puck was completely over the goal line.

Same here, it was hard to tell. And you couldn't see anything with the overhead camera at all.

They did review it, and said it was no goal. That's why Savard is so upset.
