In the 37th minute of Monday's match in Kazan, Game 2 of the Gagarin Cup final series between Ak Bars and CSKA, a goal from Kazan's Rob Klinkhammer restored the home team's lead, but the referee referred the episode to the video goal judge to ascertain whether Ak Bars had too many players on the ice. The video showed that no such violation of the rule had occurred, and so the referee awarded a goal.

In the 42nd minute, after home team forward Danis Zaripov appeared to have doubled the Kazan Men's winning margin, the referee again called for a review by the video goal judge, suspecting a possible kicking action during the goal. The footage clearly shows that the puck was pushed into the net by Zaripov's skate, and therefore the goal was ruled out.
