2/11/16: Joonas Korpisalo blocks Corey Perry's shot for the decisive save in the shootout, giving the Blue Jackets the victory
COLUMBUS - The Columbus Blue Jackets refuse to play down to their place in the standings.
Trailing by two goals in the third period against one of the hottest teams in the NHL, Brandon Saad and Brandon Dubinsky scored for the Blue Jackets to tie the game before winning 4-3 in a shootout at Nationwide Arena on Thursday.
At 0:14 of the first period in the Ducks/Blue Jackets game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the Anaheim net. The referee informed the Situation Room that he blew his whistle to stop play before the puck crossed the goal line. According to Rule 78.5, apparent goals shall be disallowed "when the Referee deems the play has been stopped, even if he had not physically had the opportunity to stop play by blowing his whistle." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Columbus.
