According to NHL.com:
Interference on the Goalkeeper - This rule is based on the premise that an attacking player’s position, whether inside or outside the crease, should not, by itself, determine whether a goal should be allowed or disallowed.
I can't discern whether or not it is reviewable. Columbus just scored off a skate as well, with no review. I couldn't see much on TV, but these refs seem to be moving this game along pretty quickly.
There just... there was no contact, at all...
