With the Flyers trailing 2-1 inside of one minute remaining in the third period and their goaltender pulled, Scott Hartnell scored what appeared to be the game-tying goal. The goal was quickly called-off then reviewed by the NHL offices in Toronto to confirm the call on the ice.
The NHL explained the reasoning for the call.
At 19:20 of the third period in the New Jersey Devils/Philadelphia Flyers game, the Situation Room initiated a video review because the puck entered the New Jersey net. The referee informed the Situation Room that Philadelphia's Scott Hartnell pushed goaltender Martin Brodeur across the goal line with the puck. According to Rule 78.5 (ix) "Apparent goals shall be disallowed by the Referee when a goaltender has been pushed into the net together with the puck after making a save." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - no penalty and no goal Philadelphia.
