MTL @ CBJ - 8:00 of the Second Period

NHL.com @NHLdotcom

At 8:00 of the second period in the Montreal Canadiens/Columbus Blue Jackets game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Montreal net. The referee informed the Situation Room that he blew his whistle to stop play when the puck landed on top of the net. According to Rule 78.5, apparent goals shall be disallowed "when the Referee deems the play has been stopped, even if he had not physically had the opportunity to stop play by blowing his whistle." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Columbus.
