Hyman, clearly bloodied on the play, headed off for repairs.
Referees Eric Furlatt and Graham Skilliter opted to review the play, which they’re able to do for major penalties, match penalties, and double-minors for high-sticking.
Under Rule 60.3, the officials can review a called high-sticking double-minor. Their options are to confirm the call, or to eliminate the penalty altogether if it was the player’s stick or a teammate’s stick that caused the injury.
When a player carries or holds any part of his stick above the shoulders and makes contact with his opponent’s neck, face or head so that injury results, in the manner of drawing blood or otherwise, the Referee shall assess a double-minor penalty.
Referees making this call shall have the option (but not the obligation) to review video of the play for the purpose of confirming (or not) their original call on the ice, and, in particular, whether the stick causing the apparent injury was actually the stick of the Player being penalized.
Such reviews will be conducted exclusively by the Referee(s) on the ice in consultation with other On-Ice Officials, as appropriate, using the technology (for example, a handheld tablet or television or computer monitor) provided for the Official(s) at ice level. On any such review, the only contact between the On-Ice Official(s) and the NHL Situation Room shall be for the sole purpose of ensuring the Referee is receiving any and all video he may request and that he has access to all the appropriate replay angles he may need to review the penalty call. There shall be no other consultation between the Referee and the NHL Situation Room, or with any other non-game participant.
Milan Lucic did not agree with the call.
Referees for the game were Eric Furlatt (#27) and Graham Skilliter (#24). Linesmen were Scott Cherrey (#50) and David Brisebois (#96).
