Situation Room: Interference call stands after review

The Jets challenge the call on the ice of goaltender interference to waive off a potential tally, and the call stands after video review

  • 00:25 •

At 9:43 of the third period in the Jets/Capitals game, Winnipeg requested a Coach's Challenge to review the "Interference on the Goalkeeper" decision that resulted in a "no goal" call.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with the Referee, the Situation Room confirmed the "no goal" call because Bryan Little interfered with Pheonix Copley prior to the puck crossing the goal line. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a "GOAL" call on the ice is that the NHL Situation Room (which shall include a former referee in the Officiating Department in the decision-making process), after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Referee who made the original call, determines that the goal should have been disallowed due to "Interference on the Goalkeeper," as described in Rules 69.1, 69.3 and 69.4."

Therefore, the original call stands - no goal Winnipeg Jets.

Since the Coach's Challenge did not result in the original call being overturned, the Winnipeg Jets forfeit their time-out.
