Situation Room: McGinn goal overturned

After the video review, it was determined that Brock McGinn was offside, and his goal is overturned in the 3rd period

  • 03:30 •

At 19:10 of the third period in the Hurricanes/Maple Leafs game, the Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach's Challenge to examine whether Brock McGinn was off-side prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesmen, the Situation Room determined that McGinn 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 Toronto Video Room, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, 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 Carolina Hurricanes.

The clock is re-set to show 0:52 (19:08 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred.


NOTE: In the final minute of play in the third period and at any point in Overtime (Regular Season and Playoffs), Hockey Operations will initiate the review of any scenario that would otherwise be subject to a Coach's Challenge.
