Situation Room: NSH v. DET

Situation Room: Abdelkader's goal stands after review

The Predators challenge goaltender interference on Justin Abdelkader's goal, and after review, the call stands on the ice

  • 02:40 •

At 5:17 of the second period in the Predators/Red Wings game, Nashville requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Detroit's Justin Abdelkader interfered with Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee confirmed no goaltender interference infractions occurred before the puck crossed the goal 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 Nashville Predators forfeit their time-out.
