Situation Room: Letang's OT winner stands upon review

The referees review goaltender interference on Kris Letang's overtime winner, and after review, the call stands to give the Penguins a 3-2 win

  • 01:13 •

At 1:24 of overtime in the Penguins/Islanders game, the Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach's Challenge to review whether a Pittsburgh player interfered with New York goaltender Jaroslav Halak prior to Kris Letang'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.
