Situation Room: Miller's goal stands after review

The officials review whether Colin Miller's shot crossed the goal line before the net dislodged, and the call on the ice stands for a good goal

  • 02:33 •

At 15:13 of the second period in the Capitals/Bruins game, video review supported the referee's call on the ice that the actions of Washington's Brooks Orpik caused the Washington net to become displaced as Boston's Colin Miller shot the puck through the normal position of the goal posts. According to Rule 63.6 "In the event that the goal post is displaced, either deliberately or accidentally, prior to the puck crossing the normal positions of the goal posts, the referee may award a goal. In order to award a goal in this situation, the goal post must have been displaced by the actions of a defending player, the puck must have been shot (or the player must be in the act of shooting) at the goal prior to the goal post being displaced, and it must be determined that the puck would have entered the net between the normal position of the goal posts. The goal frame is considered to be displaced if either or both goal pegs are no longer in their respective holes in the ice, or the net has come completely off one or both pegs, prior to or as the puck enters the goal". Good goal Boston.
