face-first on the ice
Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at Hi Kerry, Thursday nights Bruins-Blackhawks game had a goal by Patrice Bergeron initially waved off by the referee, but video review clarified it was a good goal. The situation had Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford scramble behind the net, lose the puck to Brad Marchand, who quickly threw it out to Bergeron who one-timed a shot at the net, and in. During this time, Crawford pushed the back of the net up as the puck crossed the goal line, between the posts. I understand the ruling was that it is a goal as the net didnt come off its post moorings. The question I have, is what if Crawford completely knocked the net off, on his own, as the puck went through? According to the video ruling, they indicated "because the posts remained in place, it was a goal." If the posts didnt remain in place, and the puck went in, wasnt there a rule in place that allows the goal, if the defending team knocks the net off on their own? I know this is also a delay of game penalty but, in a shooting situation, would this have counted, if Crawford knocked the net off just before the puck went in? Thanks, Louie Melissis from Whitby Hi Louie, Once the referee on the goal line waved off an apparent goal scored on a Patrice Bergeron shot that entered the net from the front position and immediately exited under where Corey Crawford had tipped the goal frame forward, the other on-ice officials quickly gathered to share their perspective on the play. During this conference it was determined (and convinced the ref that initially waved it off) that a good goal had resulted and the initial call on the ice was reversed. Video review was then initiated and it was confirmed that the puck did cross the goal line and that the goal frame was considered in its proper position as spelled out in Rule 78.4. (The goal frame shall be considered in its proper position when at least a portion of the flexible peg(s) are still inside both the goal post and the hole in the ice.)  Under Rule 38.4 (Situations Subject to Video Review), the video goal judge (Situation Room) is allowed to rule that the puck crossed the goal line and did so prior to the goal frame being dislodged under subsections (i) and (ii). If however, Crawford had knocked the net completely off the moorings prior to the puck crossing the goal line, the video goal judge could only advise the referee that the net was off the mooring prior to the puck crossing the goal line. The resulting verdict through the review process could only be "no goal". Louie, situations subject to video review aside, the referee can award a goal under Rule 63.6 when he determines that the goal post is displaced, either deliberately or accidentally, by a defending player, prior to the puck crossing the goal line between the "normal" position of the goalposts. We saw Cam Atkinson of the Columbus Blue Jackets awarded a goal under this rule in their big win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. For a goal to be awarded, the goal post must have been displaced by the actions of a defending player, the puck must have been shot (or the player must be in the act of shooting) at the goal prior to the goalpost being displaced, and it must be determined that the puck would have entered the net between the normal position of the goal posts. On this play, if Crawford had knocked the net completely off its moorings (accidentally or otherwise), it would have required a similar conference by the officials to award a goal since the ref closest to the net did not think that the puck had crossed the line between the goal posts! Video review would not be able to assist them in making this call since it is not reviewable and therefore must be determined by the referee(s) on the ice. I am quite sure the same verdict would have eventually been rendered on the ice and a goal would have been awarded to Bergeron. Boston is really bringing their "A" game at the absolute perfect time of the season. The Caps and Flyers draw the Bruins this weekend in afternoon games. Huge points for playoff standings are on the line this weekend with several meaningful 4-point games; Leafs, Flyers, Blue Jackets, Caps, Wings, Minnesota, Phoenix, Dallas, Vancouver just to name a few!   Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy the exciting playoff race. Cassius Marsh Jersey .J. Mayo made seven three-pointers and scored 25 points, Ersan Ilyasova added 20, and the Milwaukee Bucks placed seven players in double figures in a 130-110 rout of the Philadelphia 76ers, who lost their 11th straight game on Monday night. Jerry Rice Jersey . Both of Padakins goals came in the second period while Zane Jones added a single in the first period for Calgary (13-6-4). Hitmen goaltender Chris Driedger finished with 30 saves for the shutout. The group of Slava Fetisov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Konstantinov, Sergei Fedorov, & Slava Kozlov were a dominant force for The Wings at one point in the 90s. Frank Gore Jersey . In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the U.S. Open, the owner of 17 major titles got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken. Trent Taylor Jersey . Its the games against the leagues struggling franchises that have proved to be an issue.( - Six years ago, Danny Briere spurned the Montreal Canadiens in favor of signing with the Philadelphia Flyers. Fast-forward to the present and Briere is finally in a Habs jersey. Hell try to lead his club to a victory over his former employer on Saturday night when the Canadiens play host to the Flyers. You can catch all the action live on TSN Radio 690 Montreal at 7:00pm et. Briere said hes happy that his first game versus the Flyers comes early in the season and at home. "I guess that makes it a little bit easier on the preparation because for me, personally, its not a normal game," he told Montreals website. "Youre facing your ex-teammates. I have a lot of friends there. Itll be a little tougher, but I really believe that playing it in Montreal makes it a little easier." Briere made his regular season debut with the Habs in Tuesdays 4-3 loss to Toronto. He had four shots and was held without a point as the Canadiens failed to hold a 2-1 lead after the first period. Lars Eller scored twice and also assisted on Brendan Gallaghers goal, while Carey Price made 34 saves on 38 shots faced. Torontos eventual winning goal came minutes after Montreal enforcer George Parros was carted off the ice on a stretcher following a fight with Colton Orr. Parros suffered a concussion when he was taken down by Orr during the fight and landed face-first on the ice. "Its not easy after that incident to get back into the game, but we tried to use that as fuel to get another goal," said Eller, who scored his second goal with 2:22 to play. Parros was released from the hospital Wednesday morning and is sidelined indefinitely. The Flyers also lost their season opener to Toronto, falling to the visiting Maple Leafs 3-1 on Wednesday. Brayden Schenn scored during a first-period power play, but the Flyers failed to score on six other opportunities with the man advantage. Vincent Lecavalier and Mark& Streit had assists on the goal in their Philadelphia debuts.dddddddddddd "Offensively thats the best weve looked in a while, but at the end of the day youve got to score more than one goal to win a game," said Laviolette. Steve Mason, acquired during the lockout-shortened season, got the start over free agent signing Ray Emery and made 22 saves. Emery could get the start in this game. "Its huge, I had a great meeting with (Laviolette) a couple of days ago. Thats when he told me I would be playing and its a huge honor to get the opening night start," said Mason. "Ray could have been there just as easily as I could so it was a great honor to have it and unfortunately we didnt get the win." The Flyers have won 10 of their past 14 versus the Canadiens, splitting two trips to Montreal last season. Following a productive three-plus seasons in Buffalo, Briere hit the free agent market in the summer of 2007 and drew interest from a number of teams. The Quebec-born forward, though, drew the ire of Montreal natives when he decided to ink an eight-year, $52 million deal with the Flyers. Briere netted 124 goals with 159 assists for 283 points in 364 games with Philadelphia, but had just six goals and 16 points in 34 games last season. He ran out of goodwill stemming from his 30-point playoff output during the Flyers run to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2010 and had the final two years of his contract bought out this past summer. That gave the 35-year-old the opportunity to sign a two-year deal with the Canadiens"He was a good player for us for the whole time I was here," said Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette. "Certainly in the playoffs he made his noise and he made his noise really loud. You go back to some of the big series he had, the big run to the Finals, his line was an integral part of that. Its good that he landed somewhere and hes happy. Im sure hell be excited to play his old team."
