Situation Room: SJS vs. PHI - OT

Situation Room: Simmonds' OT winner confirmed

The Sharks challenge goalie interference on Wayne Simmonds' OT winner, and after a review, the call on the ice is confirmed for a good goal

  • 00:59 •

At 1:04 of overtime in the Sharks/Flyers game, the Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach's Challenge to examine whether Wayne Simmonds interfered with goaltender Aaron Dell before the puck entered the San Jose net.

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 Philadelphia Flyers.


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.
