Situation Room: WSH vs. PIT

Situation Room: Sheary's goal stands

Video review determines that there was no goaltender interference on the play and Conor Sheary's overtime goal stands

  • 01:59 •

At 0:34 of overtime in the Capitals/Penguins game, the Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach's Challenge to review whether a Pittsburgh player interfered with Washington goaltender Philipp Grubauer prior to Conor Sheary'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 Pittsburgh Penguins.

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.
