Situation Room: Jenner's goal overturned after review

The Devils challenge that there was goalie interference prior to Boone Jenner's goal and, after review, the goal is overturned

  • 04:00 •

At 0:25 of the third period in the Devils/Blue Jackets game, New Jersey requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Boone Jenner interfered with New Jersey goaltender Cory Schneider before the puck crossed the goal line. 

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee determined that Boone Jenner prevented Schneider from doing his job in his crease, in accordance with Rule 78.7 which states in part: "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Referee ... determines that the goal should have been disallowed due to 'Interference on the Goalkeeper,' as described in Rules 69.1, 69.3 and 69.4."

Rule 69.3 states that goals should be disallowed if "If an attacking player establishes a significant position within the goal crease, so as to obstruct the goalkeeper's vision and impair his ability to defend his goal, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed." 

Therefore the original call is overturned - no goal Columbus Blue Jackets. 

Since the Coach's Challenge resulted in the original call being overturned, the New Jersey Devils retain their time-out.
