Marleau gets goal after 2 reviews, Sharks beat Lightning 3-1
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Patrick Marleau had a goal that required two video reviews, Martin Jones made 25 saves and the San Jose Sharks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-1 on Saturday night.
Tommy Wingels and Marc-Edouard Vlasic also scored for the Sharks, who are 3-0 midway through a six-game road trip. San Jose is 11-3-1, including 6-1-1 on the road, against Tampa Bay since 2006.
Tampa Bay got a goal from Anton Stralman.
Marleau put a backhander on net at 7:18 of the first and then crashed into the goal along with Tampa Bay’s Andrej Sustr and Brayden Point.
The original call was incidental contact between Marleau and goalie Ben Bishop, and thus no goal.
The NHL situation room initiated a review to examine whether the puck crossed the goal line before the net was displaced. It was confirmed the puck went in before the net came off, but the no-goal call stood due to the incidental contact.
San Jose then made a coach’s challenge to review interference on the goalkeeper.
