Situation Room: DET vs. CAR

Situation Room: Athanasiou's OT winner stands

Andreas Athanasiou's goal in overtime is looked at for goaltender interference, but review confirms none on the play and the goal stands

  • 00:52 •

At 1:59 of overtime in the Red Wings/Hurricanes game, Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach's Challenge to examine whether Andreas Athanasiou interfered with Carolina goaltender Eddie Lack prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the 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 Detroit Red Wings.


NOTE: In the final minute of play in the third period and at any point in Overtime (Regular Season and Playoffs), Hockey Operations will initiate the review of any scenario that would otherwise be subject to a Coach's Challenge.
