WSH @ NYI - 12:43 of the Third Period

Saturday, 03.09.2013 / 3:35 PM

At 15:32 of the third period in the Capitals/Islanders game play was stopped after a Matt Moulson goal. However, video review determined that Jonathan Tavares' shot previously, at 12:43 of the third period, completely crossed the goal line. Therefore, only the earlier Tavares goal stands and the clock is reset back to 12:43 of the third period.

According to Rule 38.6 "In the event that a video replay shows a goal was scored prior to the play being stopped, the Video Goal Judge will inform the Game Timekeeper and Official Scorer of the time and the amount of playing time left to be reset on the game clock and penalty time clocks (if applicable)."
