Situation Room: Stafford's goal is overturned

The Devils challenge Drew Stafford's goal, and after review, it is ruled that he committed goaltender interference and his goal is overturned

  • 04:14 •

At 10:21 of the second period in the Devils/Bruins game, New Jersey requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Drew Stafford interfered with Devils goaltender Cory Schneider prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee determined that Stafford interfered with Schneider before the puck crossed the goal line. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Referee, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Toronto Video Room, 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 New Jersey Devils retain their time-out.
