Situation Room: Zacha's goal stands after challenge

The Sabres challenge for goaltender interference on Pavel Zacha's goal, but the goal stands to give the Devils the lead in the 3rd

  • 03:03 •

At 12:33 of the third period in the Sabres/Devils game, Buffalo requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Adam Henrique interfered with goaltender Robin Lehner before the puck entered the net.

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 New Jersey Devils.

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