The International Ice Hockey Federation is attempting some damage control following Sunday's controversial finish at the Women's World Championship.

In a statement issued Monday, the governing body of international hockey explained why Finland's overtime winner was disallowed in the gold-medal game against the United States, which ultimately won in a shootout.

"All goals that were scored during the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship were reviewed by the IIHF video goal judge operations," the statement read. "The overtime goal scored by Team Finland against Team USA was reviewed and disallowed by the video goal judge operations, due to non-incidental goaltender interference."

United States wins women's world hockey title with 2-1 shootout win over Finland

United States wins women's world hockey title with 2-1 shootout win over Finland ESPOO, Finland — The United States claimed a fifth straight women's world hockey championship Sunday edging Finland 2-1 in a shootout. The Americans led the shootout 2-1 when Alex Rigsby stopped Susanna Tapani for the win. Playing in their first final, the Finns were devastated because they thought they'd won their first gold on a Petra Nieminen goal at 11:33 of overtime. The team and the sold-out Metro Areena convulsed in joy, but the goal was waived off after a lengthy review. Finnish captain Jenni Hiirikoski had made contact with Rigsby as she passed in front of the net, which gave Nieminen a near-empty net at which to shoot.

Petra Nieminen scored the would-be overtime winner before it was reviewed and overturned after Finland already celebrated what it believed to be a historic home-ice victory.

The IIHF stated Monday that the video goal judge took two specific rules into consideration:

According to IIHF Playing Rule 186 v. Goaltender and Goal/Goal Crease Disallowed: An attacking skater who makes contact other than incidental with a goaltender who is out of his(/her) goal crease during game action will be assessed a minor penalty for interference. If a goal is scored at this time, it will not count.

Bronze medals hung around their necks after a 7-0 spanking of Russia on Sunday. Canada was still coming to grips with not playing in the final for the first time in tournament history. "Mentally, probably the toughest game that most of us have ever played in I think," captain Brianne Jenner said. "We did what we had to do to make sure we left this tournament with a medal. "Once the game was over, it was a bit of that disappointment still. It's going to be a tough one for us to get over.
