Situation Room: Zacha's goal stands after review

The Flames challenge that the Devils were offside on their entry prior to Pavel Zacha's goal, but following review, the goal stands

  • 01:00 •

At 11:39 of the second period in the Flames/Devils game, Calgary requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether New Jersey was off-side prior to Pavel Zacha's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff confirmed that Adam Henrique had possession and control of the puck as he entered the attacking zone prior to the goal. 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 New Jersey Devils.

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