Repairing oak floor / final finishing oak floor

Our oak floors were sanded, stained, and had two coats of semi-gloss polyurethane applied 2 years ago. They've been covered since then while other projects were completed.

Unfortunately, while moving a cast iron radiator a long gouge was put in one of the floors. In one area it goes down through all the varnish to/into/through the stain. What's the best way to repair this problem?

Fortunately, we have the original stain used on the floor, but I'm wondering what I need to do to repair the gouge. Can I just sand the varnish, restain, and put back a couple coats of the semi-gloss varnish over the gouge? Or, will I need to completely revarnish the floor?

We also need to apply the third coat of varnish over the entire wood floor - we were told by the contractor that did the initial work that the final coat should be satin rather than semi-gloss, so we've got the compatible varnish to go over the floor. Do I need to sand/scuff the varnish everywhere before putting on the final coat?

seems to me. that you would have to resand most or all of the floor. and refinish.

whom ever didn't use a dolly should be punched in the head.
