Coach's Challenge Rule Proposition

I apologize ahead of time since this thread is probably going to be filled with a lot of sour grapes in light of tonight, but the situation tonight at the end of the game brought about something that's been in the back of my mind for a while.

We've seen our fair share of questionable calls from the NHL refereeing crew this season. How about allowing the coach to challenge a ruling of a goal being called back once a game? Make it simple to be like football. If the replay is sent to Toronto and the decision stands, the team loses their timeout. If they win and the call is overturned, they keep it and have the chance to challenge again.

I think the game, the way it is today, really needs this rule or something like it. I'm prepared to take a lot of flak from the traditionalists on this one though
