Situation Room: No-goal call on Caps stands

Video review shows that Nicklas Backstrom committed goalie interference on Frederik Andersen and the call on the ice of no goal is confirmed

  • 04:05 •

At 8:11 of the third period in the Capitals/Maple Leafs game, Washington requested a Coach's Challenge to review the "Interference on the Goalkeeper" decision that resulted in a "no goal" call.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee determined that Washington's Nicklas Backstrom interfered with Toronto goaltender Frederik Andersen.

Therefore the original call stands - no goal Washington Capitals.

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