Situation Room: Pacioretty's goal stands after review

The referees review Max Pacioretty's tally as the puck went off his skate, and the call of a good call stands

  • 01:05 •

Type of Review: Distinct Kicking Motion

Result: Original call confirmed - Goal Vegas

Explanation: Video review supported the Referee's call on the ice that the puck deflected off Max Pacioretty's skate and entered the net in a legal fashion. Rule 37.4 states, in part, "A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking Player's skate who does not use a "distinct kicking motion" shall be ruled a GOAL. A puck that is directed into the net by an attacking Players' skate shall also be ruled a GOAL, as long as no "distinct kicking motion" is evident."
