The goal lines are the far right and far left lines that go the width of the rink.

The goal line in ice hockey is the far red line at each end of the ice rink. It is used for things such as determining Icing, Goals, and Delay of Game penalties for goalies. In most cases involving the goal line and all the ones listed above, the puck must cross completely over the goal line for anything to occur. If the puck does not cross over the line, an Icing has never occurred, a goal was never scored, and a delay of game infraction has never happened.
