Situation Room: CGY vs. OTT

Situation Room: Ryan's goal overturned in 3rd

The Flames challenge Bobby Ryan's goal for goaltender interference, and after review, the call on the ice is overturned

  • 03:13 •

At 8:24 of the third period in the Flames/Senators game, Calgary requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Ottawa's Bobby Ryan interfered with goaltender David Rittich prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Referee, the Situation Room determined that Ryan impaired Rittich from freezing the puck in the crease and pushed his glove with the puck into the net. The decision was made in accordance with According to Rule 78.7,"The standard for overturning the call in the event of a "GOAL" call on the ice is that the NHL Situation Room (which shall include a former referee in the Officiating Department in the decision-making process), after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Referee who made the original call, 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 Ottawa Senators.

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