Situation Room: Kuraly's goal overturned after review

The Blue Jackets challenge for goalie interference prior to Sean Kuraly's tally, and after video review, the call on the ice is overturned

  • 04:48 •

At 8:53 of the first period in the Bruins/Blue Jackets game, Columbus requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Boston's Joakim Nordstrom interfered with Sergei Bobrovsky prior to Sean Kuraly's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Referees, the Situation Room determined that the actions of Nordstrom impaired Bobrovsky's ability to play his position in the crease. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a "GOAL" call on the ice is that the NHL Situation Room (which shall include a former referee in the Officiating Department in the decision-making process), after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Referee who made the original call, 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."

Therefore, the original call is overturned - no goal Boston Bruins.

Since the Coach's Challenge resulted in the original call being overturned, the Columbus Blue Jackets retain their time-out.
