Situation Room: Brennan's goal stands after review

4/4/16: After a coach's challenge by the Panthers, the call on the ice stands, resulting in a good goal for Toronto

  • 05:52 •

At 8:54 of the third period in the Panthers/Maple Leafs game, Florida requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether a Toronto player interfered with Florida goaltender Al Montoya prior to T.J. Brennan's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee determined that the actions of Florida's Garrett Wilson caused Toronto's Rich Clune to contact Montoya before the puck crossed the goal line. The decision was made in accordance with Note 2 of Rule 78.7 (ii) which states, in part, that the goal on the ice should have been allowed because "the attacking Player was pushed, shoved or fouled by a defending Player causing the attacking Player to come into contact with the goalkeeper."
