Situation Room: Coyle's goal overturned after review

The Canadiens challenge Charlie Coyle's third-period goal for offside and, after review, the call on the ice is overturned to no goal

  • 05:10 •

Challenge Initiated By: Montreal

Type of Challenge: Off-side

Result: Original call is overturned - No Goal Boston

Explanation: It was determined that Boston's Charlie Coyle was in an off-side position prior to his goal. According to Rule 38.9, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a "GOAL" call on the ice is that the NHL Situation Room, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the On-Ice Official(s), 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."

The clock is re-set to show 14:50 (5:10 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred.
