Situation Room: Klefbom's goal overturned

Oscar Klefbom scores in the 3rd period but the Lightning challenge that the play was offside and after review, the goal is overturned

  • 02:56 •

At 2:03 of the third period in the Oilers/Lightning game, Tampa Bay requested a Coach's Challenge to determine whether Edmonton was off-side prior to their goal. 

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff determined that Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Toronto Video Room, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Linesman, determines that one or more Players on the attacking team preceded the puck into the attacking zone prior to the goal being scored and that, as a result, the play should have been stopped for an "Off-side" infraction; where this standard is met, the goal will be disallowed."

Therefore the original call is overturned - no goal Edmonton Oilers. 

The clock is re-set to show 18:07 (1:53 elapsed time), when the off-side infraction occurred. 

Since the Coach's Challenge resulted in the original call being overturned, the Tampa Bay Lightning retain their time-out.
