Situation Room: van Riemsdyk goal upheld after review

The Penguins challenge for goaltender interference prior to James van Riemsdyk's goal, but after review, the call on the ice stands

  • 02:22 •

At 16:56 of the third period in the Penguins/Flyers game, Pittsburgh requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Philadelphia's James van Riemsdyk interfered with Matt Murray prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Referee, the Situation Room confirmed no goaltender interference infractions occurred before the puck crossed the goal line.

Therefore, the original call stands - good goal Philadelphia Flyers.

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