Situation Room: DeBrusk awarded goal after review

The referees review whether Jake DeBrusk's shot crossed the goal line before play was halted, and the call is overturned to a good goal

  • 00:51 •

At 19:20 of the second period in the Bruins/Blue Jackets game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Columbus net. Video review determined that Jake DeBrusk's original shot completely crossed the Columbus goal line as the culmination of a continuous play where the result was unaffected by the whistle.

The ruling was made in accordance with Rule 38.4 (ix), which reads in part, "The video review process shall be permitted to assist the Referees in determining the legitimacy of all potential goals… include situations whereby the Referee stops play or is in the process of stopping the play because he has lost sight of the puck and it is subsequently determined by video review that the puck crosses (or has crossed) the goal line and enters the net as the culmination of a continuous play where the result was unaffected by the whistle (i.e., the timing of the whistle was irrelevant to the puck entering the net at the end of a continuous play)." 

Good goal Boston.
