Situation Room: DET vs. TOR

Situation Room: Ericsson's goal counts after review

Jonathan Ericsson's goal is waved off for goaltender interference, but after a Red Wings challenge, the call is overturned for a good goal

  • 04:01 •

At 8:36 of the second period in the Red Wings/Maple Leafs game, Detroit 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 Detroit's Justin Abdelkader did not interfere with Toronto goaltender Curtis McElhinney before the puck crossed the goal line.

Therefore the original call is overturned - good goal Detroit Red Wings.

Since the Coach's Challenge resulted in the original call being overturned, the Red Wings retain their time-out.
