Situation Room: Goal overturned after Avs challenge

The Avalanche challenge for off-sides prior to Joe Pavelski's goal, and after video review, the call on the ice is reversed

  • 02:18 •

At 16:59 of the third period in the Avalanche/Sharks game, Colorado requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether San Jose was off-side prior to Joe Pavelski's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesmen, the Situation Room determined that San Jose's Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi were off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Toronto Video Room, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, determines that one or more Players on the attacking team preceded the puck into the attacking zone prior to the goal being scored and that, as a result, the play should have been stopped for an "Off-side" infraction; where this standard is met, the goal will be disallowed."

Therefore, the original call is overturned - no goal San Jose Sharks.

The clock is re-set to show 3:06 (16:54 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred.
