Situation Room: Streit's goal is overturned

2/20/16: The Maple Leafs challenge goaltender interference on Mark Streit's goal, and after review, the call is overturned as no goal

  • 00:57 •

At 4:13 of the third period in the Flyers/Maple Leafs game, Toronto requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Brayden Schenn interfered with goaltender James Reimer before the puck entered the net. 

The Referee determined that Schenn interfered with Reimer 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."
