s his 300th NHL point... Capital escrito por lw789

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Seth Curry Jersey .ca. Hi Mr Fraser Can you clarify if I was in a time-warp over the weekend? In the 2nd period, Evander Kane boarded Clayton Stoner from behind, and got a deserved major penalty. However, while a teammate was engaging with Kane, Stoner got up, dropped his gloves and punched Kane 3 times in the head. It looked like the 1970s Flyers with Schultz and Dupont ganging up on an opponent, and the refs duly ignoring it. Stoner got 2 for roughing. How many bare-fisted punches to the head do you get for 2 minutes? And isnt there a 3rd man in rule anymore? Kane was partially tied up by the other Ducks player while Stoner was unloading. Surely theres an irony to Kane getting ejected for a dangerous hit but Stoner getting 2 minutes for 3 bare-fisted punches to Kanes head while Kane is not even free to defend or protect himself. So much for the NHL wanting to protect its players from head injuries. Then in the 3rd Dustin Byfuglien was in alone on a breakaway and was impeded (a little bit) by Sami Vatanen who got 2:00 for slashing. OK, it was a borderline call, maybe, but either you have to give a penalty shot, surely, or else make no call. Again, it looked like a bit of 1970s and 1980s let em play officiating. This inconsistency makes the NHL look bad, in my opinion. What do you think? Thanks Brian Jose Durres, Albania -- Mr. Fraser. Just watched Evander Kanes hit from behind and completely agree with the penalty and misconduct, my question is as Kanes engaged with the teammate the Ducks player gets up drops the gloves and starts throwing as third man in. He was assessed a 2 minute penalty for this, would seem to me it should have been evened out. Like to know your opinion. Thanks, Paul Paul and Brian (Many thanks for coming to us all the way from Durres, Albania): There is no question the referee(s) assessed the appropriate penalty to Evander Kane, five minutes plus a game misconduct, for a check from behind that drove Clayton Stoner face-first into the glass. I have no doubt that Kane will be suspended for this careless and dangerous hit. As both of you have alluded to in your question, a free pass should not be given to any player who wishes to retaliate but must be held accountable for his actions under the playing rules as the penalty meter continues to run. An altercation (46.3) is defined as a situation involving two players with at least one to be penalized. This definition was clearly satisfied once Kane delivered the illegal hit on Stoner. There was a minimal time delay from the moment of the hit (and with Stoner still down on the ice) to when Sami Vatanen of the Ducks approached Kane with his stick in a prone, cross-check position to engage the Jets player. If Stoner had not gotten up off the ice and immediately attacked Kane the intervention by Vatanen could have been treated as a separate altercation and penalized accordingly. In this scenario Vatanens actions were worthy of a minor penalty for roughing. Depending upon Kanes response to Vartanen, all we had at that point was a major and game misconduct to Kane and a minor to Vatanen. This changed, however, when Stoner got up off the ice, threw his gloves down and began unloading bombs to the facial area of Kane, who was now engaged with Vatanen. Based on Stoners aggressive actions, well beyond a simple roughing incident, he was no longer the victim of an illegal hit but potentially the instigator of a subsequent fight. Stoner threw three punches, one of which appeared to get through and connect to the face of Kane. In a perfect world, Stoner should have been assessed two minutes for instigating, five minutes for fighting and a 10 minute misconduct and Vartanen a roughing minor and game misconduct as the third man into an altercation. A perfect world it is not and as rule 46 (fighting) states, The referees are provided very wide latitude in the penalties which they may impose under this rule. This is done intentionally to enable them to differentiate between the obvious degrees of responsibility of the participants for either starting the fighting or persisting in continuing the fighting. To be fair and in consideration of the wide latitude granted to the referee, the punches thrown by Stoner did not commence until after Vartanen intervened and engaged Kane, which would cause some reluctance for the referee to determine a third man in. The linesmen were also quick to intervene and restrain Stoner from continuing to throw punches. It would be reasonable, under these circumstances, for the referee to forgo a fighting major to Stoner but to instead treat the entire altercation as separate roughing incidents. Im not into the even up theory here, Paul, and disagree with the final assessment of penalties. At the very least, Stoner deserved a double-minor for roughing based on the number of attempted punches thrown and Vartanen, a single roughing minor in the aftermath of the check from behind delivered by Kane. Kane did not respond other than in an attempt to fend off both Vartanen and Stoner by raising his hands in a defensive posture. As such, Kane was deserving of nothing beyond the major and game misconduct. The Jets should have received a 4-on-3 numerical advantage for two minutes (assuming a Jets PP goal did not result), following which the teams would play four aside another two minutes. The Ducks would then receive a one minute power-play for the duration of Kanes major infraction. An assessment of penalties in this manner identifies the actions of each individual player and holds them more accountable under the rules. It also sends a message to players who seek retribution that they nullify a potential power-play their team was about to receive and in this case end up a man short. At 4:56 of the third period, Vartanen made light contact to the hip area of Dustin Bufuglien with a slash as the Jets player was in the act of shooting on a clear breakaway. A penalty shot is awarded to restore a lost scoring opportunity. The contact delivered by Vartanen did not restrict Bufugliens shot or scoring opportunity and was unworthy of penalty shot. The minor penalty for slashing was based more on the full extension for Vartanen to make contact than the degree of force exerted. Luka Doncic Jersey . The teams were scoreless for most of the first two periods before Canada scored three times in a span of less than four minutes. Sarah Potomak opened the scoring on the power play.

The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta.TAMPA, Fla. -- Eric Fehr hopes a final-minute victory will jumpstart a positive stretch for the Washington Capitals. Fehr had two goals, including a tiebreaking redirection with 51.5 seconds left in the third period, as the Capitals beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Thursday night. "These are the kind of games that can be momentum builders for you," Fehr said. "It wasnt the prettiest way to win it, but scoring in the last couple of minutes, you could see the excitement on the bench. Hopefully we can carry that into tomorrow." Fehr was positioned in close when he tipped Mike Greens shot past Anders Lindback, helping the Capitals improve to 2-3-3 over their last eight games. Washington plays again Friday night at home against Toronto. Tampa Bay had pulled even at 3 on Ondrej Palats nifty tip-in of Matt Carles shot at 14:30 of the third. Martin St. Louis also assisted on the goal to move past Rick Tocchet into sole possession of 89th place on the NHLs career list with 953 points. The teams switched ends midway through each period due to what was called "poor ice" in the visitors crease. "I think the one crease, I dont know if it was a heating issue or something, but the ice was getting really soft," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "There was a thought that it might be a disadvantage in that crease. It didnt have any effect on the game." "You kind of forget which end you were going to for a bit there," Fehr said. Washington also got goals from Mikhail Grabovski and Marcus Johansson. Tyler Johnson and B.J. Crombeen had the other goals for the Lightning. The Capitals won the first meeting this season 6-5 in a shootout on Dec. 10, a game in which Alex Ovechkin had four goals and Nicklas Backstrom contributed a goal and four assists. Dallas Mavericks Jerseys. Ovechkin and Backstrom both had an assist Thursday. Washington took a 3-1 first-period lead, keyed by power-play goals from Grabovski and Johansson. After Grabovski scored on a redirection at 10:37, Johansson made it 3-1 from in close with 12 seconds left in the first. Crombeen stopped a personal 56-game goal drought from the right circle to get Tampa Bay within 3-2 at 6:45 of the second. A potential tying goal by Palat later in the period was disallowed when it was ruled he kicked the puck into the net. Johnson put the Lightning up 1-0 when he lifted a shot over Philipp Grubauer during a breakaway 4:08 into the game. Palat assisted on the goal to set a Tampa Bay rookie record by extending his point streak to eight games. Grubauer finished with 33 saves. Fehr tied it at 1 by beating Anders Lindback from the left circle at 7:04 of the first. Lindback stopped 16 shots, including 10 of 11 over the final two periods. "You hold them to 11 shots the last two periods, and its another one of those situations we had multiple chances to take the lead and we didnt," Cooper said. "We just broke down at the end." NOTES: Cooper believes Lightning star Steven Stamkos can return from a broken right shin in time for next months Olympics.
