Situation Room: Devils' goal overturned after review

They Flyers challenge that John Quenneville was offside prior to the Devils' goal, and after review, the call is overturned to no goal

  • 00:55 •

At 8:11 of the third period in the Devils/Flyers game, Philadelphia requested a Coach's Challenge to determine whether New Jersey was off-side prior to their goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff determined that New Jersey's John Quenneville 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 New Jersey Devils.

The clock is re-set to show 11:53 (8:07 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred.

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