Situation Room: WSH vs. MTL

Situation Room: Plekanec's goal stands

Tomas Plekanec ties the game with a goal in the 3rd period and after the Capitals challenge for goaltender interference, the call stands

  • 00:48 •

At 7:18 of the third period in the Capitals/Canadiens game, Washington requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Montreal's Paul Byron interfered with Washington goaltender Braden Holtby prior to Tomas Plekanec's goal.

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 Montreal Canadiens.

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