Situation Room: Sissons' goal counts after review

After a video review, it is determined that Colton Sissons' shot crossed the goal line and was the play was unaffected by the referee's whistle

  • 02:22 •

At 0:37 of the second period in the Canucks/Predators game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Vancouver net. Video review determined that Colton Sissons' original shot completely crossed the Vancouver goal line as the culmination of a continuous play where the result was unaffected by the whistle. 

The ruling was made in accordance with Rule 38.4 (ix), which reads in part, "The video review process shall be permitted to assist the Referees in determining the legitimacy of all potential goals… include situations whereby the Referee stops play or is in the process of stopping the play because he has lost sight of the puck and it is subsequently determined by video review that the puck crosses (or has crossed) the goal line and enters the net as the culmination of a continuous play where the result was unaffected by the whistle (i.e., the timing of the whistle was irrelevant to the puck entering the net at the end of a continuous play)." 

Good goal Nashville.
