At 4:40 of overtime, Jets forward Mark Scheifele scored what looked to be the game-winning goal. But then Caps head coach Barry Trotz challenged! Trotz thought the Jets were offside on the play.
Then for the next eight minutes and forty-five seconds (which was excruciating by the way), linesmen David Brisebois and Mark Wheler reviewed the play on a tiny tablet to see if the Jets’ Blake Wheeler was offside when Jacob Trouba brought the puck into the zone.
Dean Morton, an NHL official since 2000, announced the judgement on behalf of his crew.
