3/18/16: The call of no goal on the ice stands after a video review

  • 02:28 •

At 5:29 of the second period in the Canucks/Oilers game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Edmonton net. The referee informed the Situation Room that Canucks forward Brendan Gaunce made incidental contact with Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot before the puck crossed the goal line. This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no penalty and no goal Vancouver.
