Situation Room: Coleman's goal overturned upon review

The Canucks challenge that the Devils were offside on their entry prior to Blake Coleman's goal, and after review the goal is overturned

  • 04:36 •

At 15:53 of the third period in the Devils/Canucks game, Vancouver requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether New Jersey was off-side prior to Kyle Palmieri's goal. 

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the linesmen, NHL Hockey Operations staff determined that New Jersey's Taylor Hall was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Linesman, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Toronto Video Room, 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."

Therefore the original call is overturned - no goal New Jersey Devils. 

The clock is re-set to show 4:24 (15:36 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred. 

Since the Coach's Challenge resulted in the original call being overturned, the Vancouver Canucks retain their time-out.
