Situation Room: Hertl's goal stands after review

3/3/16: The referees review a high stick on Tomas Hertl's goal and the goal stands at 10:29 of the 2nd period

  • 00:59 •

At 10:29 of the second period in the Sharks/Canucks game, video review was inconclusive in determining whether Tomas Hertl's stick was at or below the level of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the Vancouver net. According to Rule 38.4 (vi) "The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick in relation to the crossbar. If the puck makes contact with the portion of the stick that is at or below the level of the crossbar and enters the goal, this goal shall be allowed." Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - good goal San Jose.
