Situation Room: Barkov's goal stands after challenge

The Devils challenge for goaltender interference on Aleksander Barkov's goal, but the call on the ice stands after review

  • 03:29 •

At 6:51 of the first period in the Devils/Panthers game, New Jersey requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Florida's Nick Bjugstad interfered with New Jersey goaltender Cory Schneider prior to Aleksander Barkov's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Referee confirmed no goaltender interference infractions occurred before the puck crossed the goal line.

Therefore the original call stands - good goal Florida Panthers.

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