Situation Room: Larkin's goal stands after challenge

The Devils challenge whether the Red Wings were offside prior to Dylan Larkin's goal, and after review, the call stands as a good goal

  • 01:11 •

At 19:58 of the second period in the Red Wings/Devils game, New Jersey requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Detroit was off-side prior to Dylan Larkin's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff confirmed that Larkin had possession and control of the puck as he entered the attacking zone. According to Rule 83.1, "a player actually controlling the puck who shall cross the line ahead of the puck shall not be considered 'off-side,' provided he had possession and control of the puck prior to his skates crossing the blue line."

Therefore the original call stands - good goal Detroit Red Wings.

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