Coach's Challenge: MTL @ FLA - 18:23 of First Period

Original call is overturned - no goal Montreal Canadiens @NHLdotcom

Situation Room: MTL vs. FLA

Situation Room: Markov's goal overturned after review

4/2/16: After a coach's challenge by Panthers, the Canadiens are judged to be offsides and the goal is overturned

  • 05:50 •

At 18:23 of the first period in the Canadiens/Panthers game, Florida requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Montreal was off-side before the puck entered the net. 

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Linesman determined that Montreal was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Linesman, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Toronto Video Room, determines that one or more Players on the attacking team preceded the puck into the attacking zone prior to the goal being scored and that, as a result, the play should have been stopped for an "Off-side" infraction; where this standard is met, the goal will be disallowed."
