Memorial Cup: Is this how video review normally works?

The Memorial Cup is on NHL Network. It’s the Edmonton Oil Kings playing host Shawinigan. Third period.

It’s fair to say the Buffalo Sabres liked Tyler Myers from the start. They traded up to select him 12th overall in last June’s NHL entry draft, and General Manager Darcy Regier said he was happy to pay the price to get him. On Monday, the Sabres proved their admiration again. They signed their top…
