OTT@BUF: Play at Senators' net not reviewable

3/18/16: Upon review the referee determined play should have been stopped due to a delayed penalty, making the play at the net not reviewable

  • 01:13 •

At 1:55 of the first period in the Senators/Sabres game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Ottawa net. The referee informed the Situation Room that play should have been stopped when Ottawa's Dion Phaneuf played the puck because there was a delayed penalty against the Senators. According to Rule 15.1, "when the team to be penalized gains control of the puck, the Referee will blow his whistle to stop play and impose the penalty to the offending player." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - minor penalty to Phaneuf and no goal Buffalo.
