The referees determine that Jake Guentzel scored off his skate in a legal fashion, and the call stands as a goal in the 1st

  • 02:16 •

Type of Review: Distinct Kicking Motion

Result: Original call is confirmed - Goal Pittsburgh

Explanation: Video review confirmed the Referee's call on the ice that the puck deflected off Jake Guentzel's skate and entered the net in a legal fashion. Rule 37.4 states, in part, "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking Player's skate who does not use a "distinct kicking motion" shall be ruled a GOAL. A puck that is directed into the net by an attacking Players' skate shall also be ruled a GOAL, as long as no "distinct kicking motion" is evident."
