Situation Room: Wallmark's goal stands after review

Lucas Wallmark scores on a deflection in front, and the goal stands after the Capitals challenge for goaltender interference

  • 02:15 •

At 15:54 of the first period in the Hurricanes/Capitals game, Washington requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Carolina's Saku Maenalanen interfered with Braden Holtby prior to Lucas Wallmark's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Referees, the Situation Room confirmed no goaltender interference infractions occurred before the puck crossed the goal line.

Therefore, the original call stands - good goal Carolina Hurricanes.

Since the Coach's Challenge did not result in the original call being overturned, the Washington Capitals forfeit their time-out.
