Situation Room: Staal's equalizer stands after review

The referees review for offside on Eric Staal's goal in the 3rd period, and the call stands as the Wild entered the zone legally

  • 03:30 •

At 19:33 of the third period in the Capitals/Wild game, the Situation Room initiated a review under the terms of a Coach's Challenge to examine whether Minnesota was offside prior to Eric Staal's goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the linesman, NHL Hockey Operations staff confirmed that Jason Zucker tagged up at the blueline, nullifying the delayed off-side, before the puck touched Jared Spurgeon's stick inside the attacking zone.

Therefore the original call stands - good goal Minnesota Wild.
