Situation Room: CAR vs. WSH

Situation Room: Connolly's goal stands

The Hurricanes challenge for offside on Brett Connolly's goal in the 1st and, after video review, the call on the ice stands for a good goal

  • 03:13 •

At 13:47 of the first period in the Hurricanes/Capitals game, Carolina requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Washington was off-side prior to Brett Connolly's goal.

Review was not conclusive in determining whether Washington was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "If a review is not conclusive and/or there is any doubt whatsoever as to whether the call on the ice was correct, the On-Ice Official(s) will be instructed to confirm their original call."

Therefore the original call stands - good goal Washington Capitals.

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