Situation Room: Kings' no-goal confirmed after review

Video review determines that play was stopped prior to the puck crossing the goal line on a Kings' power play, and the no-goal call stands

  • 01:19 •

At 14:31 of the third period in the Coyotes/Kings game, the referee initiated a video review because the puck entered the Arizona net. The Situation Room informed the referee the original shot did not enter the Arizona net, but was saved and remained between Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith's legs. At that point the referee informed the Situation Room that he had blown his whistle to stop play before the puck crossed the goal line. According to Rule 78.5, apparent goals shall be disallowed "when the Referee deems the play has been stopped, even if he had not physically had the opportunity to stop play by blowing his whistle."  This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no goal Los Angeles.
