Situation Room: DET vs. BUF

Situation Room: Gionta's goal stands after challenge

Brian Gionta scores on a rebound goal in front, and after the Red Wings challenge for goaltender interference, the call stands as a good goal

  • 03:47 •

At 1:42 of the third period in the Red Wings/Sabres game, Detroit requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether a Buffalo player interfered with Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard prior to Brian Gionta'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 Buffalo Sabres. 

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