Situation Room: PHI vs. EDM

Situation Room: Hendricks' goal stands after review

The Flyers challenge that the Oilers were offside prior to Matt Hendricks' tally, but after review, the call of good goal stands

  • 02:52 •

At 2:14 of the first period in the Flyers/Oilers game, Philadelphia requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Edmonton was off-side prior to Matt Hendricks' goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff were inconclusive in determining whether Edmonton 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 Edmonton Oilers.

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