Situation Room: Pitlick's goal stands after review

After the video review, it is determined there was no goaltender interference and Tyler Pitlick's goal stands in the 3rd

  • 02:15 •

At 12:01 of the third period in the Wild/Stars game, Minnesota requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Dallas' Roope Hintz interfered with Alex Stalock prior to Tyler Pitlick's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Referees, the Situation Room confirmed that the actions of Minnesota's Ryan Suter caused Hintz to contact Stalock before the puck crossed the goal line. The decision was made in accordance with Note 2 of Rule 78.7 (ii) which states, in part, that the goal should be allowed because "the attacking Player was pushed, shoved or fouled by a defending Player causing the attacking Player to come into contact with the goalkeeper." 

Therefore, the original call stands - good goal Dallas Stars.

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