NHL Explains Reasoning Behind Disallowed Rangers Goal

Hey! Even if they can’t turn their microphones on, the NHL can still pass along their explanation on why a Rangers goal was disallowed in the third. One of our theories holds true: It was goalie interference.

Via NHL.com:

At 11:32 of the third period in the Rangers/Capitals game, the puck entered the Capitals net. The referee ruled that Braden Holtby made the original save and then the puck entered the net when Brian Boyle’s right skate made contact with Holtby resulting in goaltender interference, therefore there was no goal. This was not a reviewable play. Referee’s call on the ice stands No Goal New York.
