Video Review: WSH @ MTL - 12:08 of the Second Period

NHL.com @NHL

At 12:08 of the second period in the Capitals/Canadiens game, video review supported the referee's call on the ice that Lars Eller's original shot crossed the goal line as the culmination of a continuous play where the result was unaffected by the whistle. According to Rule 38.4 (viii) "The video review process shall be permitted to assist the Referees in determining the legitimacy of all potential goals (e.g. to ensure they are "good hockey goals") . . . This would also include 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)." Good goal Montreal.
