Challenge Initiated By: Situation Room
Type of Challenge: Goaltender Interference
Result: Original call is confirmed - Goal Minnesota
Explanation: Video review confirmed the actions of Winnipeg's Anthony Bitetto and Tucker Poolman caused Zach Parise to make contact with Connor Hellebuyck prior to Eric Staal's goal. The decision was made in accordance with Note 2 of Rule 38.11 (ii) which states, in part, that the goal should be allowed because "the attacking Player was pushed, shoved or fouled by the defending Player causing the attacking Player to come into contact with the goalkeeper."
NOTE: In the final minute of play in the third period and at any point in Overtime (Regular Season and Playoffs), Hockey Operations will initiate the review of any scenario that would otherwise be subject to a Coach's Challenge.
