Face Bruins after win streak ends in Philadelphia

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Their franchise-best nine-game winning streak a thing of the past, the Tampa Bay Lightning had one choice after a clunker at Wells Fargo Center on Monday.

"Get ready for Boston," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.

They don't have much time. The Lightning are on the ice again Tuesday against the Boston Bruins with first place in the Atlantic Division on the line. Their 4-2 loss against the Philadelphia Flyers won't matter when the puck drops at Amalie Arena.

Coach's Challenge: TBL @ PHI - 16:51 of the Second Period

Original call stands - good goal Philadelphia Flyers @NHL

Situation Room: Gostisbehere's goal upheld

3/7/16: Shayne Gostisbehere's 2nd-period goal is upheld after Jon Cooper challenged that there was goaltender interference on the play

  • 03:15 •

At 16:51 of the second period in the Lightning/Flyers game, Tampa Bay requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Sam Gagner interfered with goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy before the puck entered the net. 

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee determined that no goaltender interference infractions occurred since Gagner was pushed into Vasilevskiy by a defending player before the puck crossed the goal line. The decision was made in accordance with Rule 69.1 which states, in part, that contact will not be deemed initiated by the attacking player "if an attacking player has been pushed, shoved or fouled by a defending player so as to cause him to come into contact with the goalkeeper."
