Let's Go, Wild!
Awesome to see the Wild clinch a series on home ice like that. Bring on the blackhawks, hopefully things go better this time than the last two years...
No, you can't. You should know we Americans invented the sport and everything in the world.
But, to be honest, I'm relatively new to being a hockey fan. I lived in MN for years, watched the Wild and wasn't very impressed. Go to NY and see the Rangers play and it felt like a pro team (than the collegiate feel the Wild had at the time). So, I'm still learning rules.
I sure hope Kerry Fraser didn't ref the last Cup Finals. Man, there were some bad calls (or no-calls) that shifted momentum in a couple games that might have changed the results. Goalie interference is one penalty that seems rarely consistent in games I've watched.
Anyway, you guys can educate me, and I appreciate it.
Traveling in the NBA: do they even call that anymore? I gave up watching basketball years ago when it became an individual sport with 4 other guys on the court.
Yeah and it's a Canadian source. Just like StL reporters say it's BS. So, with that logic of not playing the puck then the defender that raises the stick during offensive play is also guilty.
But hey, I'm a Rangers fan. Great year so far.
Any forceful or powerful chop with the stick on an opponent’s body, the opponent’s stick, or on or near the opponent’s hands that, in the judgment of the Referee, is not an attempt to play the puck, shall be penalized as slashing.
How about that "Slashing" call that robbed the Blues a goal. Seriously? Guy just can't hold onto his stick.
