Challenge Initiated By: Situation Room
Type of Challenge: Goaltender Interference
Result: Original call is overturned - No Goal Montreal
Explanation: Video review determined that Montreal's Brendan Gallagher impaired Ottawa goaltender Matt Murray's ability to play his position in the crease prior to the puck entering the net. The decision was made in accordance with Rule 69.1 which states, in part, that "Goals should be disallowed only if: (1) an attacking player, either by his positioning or by contact, impairs the goalkeeper's ability to move freely within his crease or defend his goal."
NOTE: In the final minute of play in the third period and at any point in overtime (regular season and playoffs), Hockey Operations will initiate the review of any scenario that would otherwise be subject to a Coach's Challenge.
