Coach's challenges for goaltender interference and the ensuing arguments aren't going away.

There will just be a new place to direct the complaints.

With the goal of refining the consistency of goalie interference challenges, NHL general managers on Wednesday recommended shifting the decision from on-ice officials to the league's situation room in Toronto. The change could go into effect as soon as the playoffs, which begin April 11, if approved by the board of governors and NHL/NHL Players' Association competition committee.
