Situation Room: Stralman's goal overturned

3/3/16: The Senators challenge Anton Stralman's goal in the 1st period and the call is overturned due to goaltender interference

  • 01:03 •

At 5:25 of the first period in the Lightning/Senators game, Ottawa requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Erik Condra interfered with goaltender Andrew Hammond before the puck entered the net.

The Referee determined that Condra interfered with Hammond 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."
