Wild guess, but I would bet that questionable goals can be reviewed, but not questionable calls (or missed calls) that precede goals. The goal itself, in isolation, was fine. It was the missed call before it that can't be reviewed.
An analogy would be if a player high sticked somebody right before his team scores a goal. If the penalty was caught, then no goal. If the penalty was missed, you can't review the goal, because the goal itself was fine.
Again, just guessing. Wildly.
