Video Review: NYR @ TBL - 19:51 of the Second Period

NHL.com @NHL

At 19:51 of the second period in the New York Rangers/Tampa Bay Lightning, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the New York net. The referee initially signalled "no goal" but after huddling with the other on-ice officials, the call on the ice was changed to "good goal" because the puck crossed the goal line on a continuous play resulting from Anton Stralman's original shot. Rule 38.4 (viii) states, in part, that the video review process shall be permitted in "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)." Video review supported the final on-ice decision - good goal Tampa Bay.
