Original call stands, good goal Nashville @NHLdotcom

Situation Room: NSH vs. TBL

Situation Room: Ellis credited with goal after review

The referees wave off Ryan Ellis' would-be goal, but after a pair of challenges, the call on the ice is overturned and it is a good goal

  • 01:11 •

At 14:04 of the second period in the Predators/Lightning game, Tampa Bay requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Nashville was off-side prior to their goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff were inconclusive in determining whether the Predators were 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 Nashville Predators.

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