Situation Room: Henrique's goal is overturned

2/16/16: Adam Henrique scores, but after a Flyers' challenge, the goal is overturned due to goaltender interference

  • 02:21 •

At 10:09 of the first period in the Flyers/Devils game, Philadelphia requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Lee Stempniak interfered with goaltender Michal Neuvirth before the puck entered the net. 

The Referee determined that Stempniak interfered with Neuvirth before the puck crossed the goal line. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Referee, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Toronto Video Room, determines that the goal should have been disallowed due to 'Interference on the Goalkeeper,' as described in Rules 69.1, 69.3 and 69.4."
