Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hi Kerry, In Game 2 of the Canadiens-Bruins series, could you explain how the interference to Tuukka Rask by Brandon Prust, which appeared to prevent him from getting back into position and be ready for Mike Weavers shot (which produced Montreals first goal) differed from the situation you described in the first series when Carey Price was interfered with and - as you answered then - was correctly waved off as a no goal? Thanks!Rhonda McClure Rhonda: The primary difference between the two plays, both of which resulted in significant contact with the goalkeepers inside their crease, is that Brandan Prust was pushed/cross-checked from behind onto Tuukka Rask by his defenceman (Andrej Meszaros) which negated interference on the goalkeeper as spelled out in rule 69.1 (If an attacking player has been pushed, shoved or fouled by a defending player so as to cause him to come into contact with the goalkeeper, such contact will not be deemed contact initiated by the attacking player for the purposes of this rule, provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such contact.) Prust had no opportunity to avoid contact with Rask after being shoved from behind by Meszaros. It is also important to note that Prust did not delay in getting up off Rask and then immediately vacated the goal crease. On the other hand, Alex Killorn of the Tampa Lightning initiated contact with Carey Price when he crashed the net with a deke and attempt to jam the puck past Price. (David Desharnais was behind Killorn but did not push, shove or foul the Tampa player so as to cause contact with Price as Meszaros did to Prust!) Following contact with Prices skate and pad Killorn rotated and fell into the back of the net. If the puck were to have entered the net on this segment of the play the goal should be disallowed based on the goalie interference initiated by Killorn. Alex Killorn suffered double jeopardy once the second incident of contact in the blue paint was clearly initiated by Price when the goalie launched himself into Killorn as the Tampa player was attempting to vacate the crease. This action by Price demonstrates the flaw in rule 69.3 which states; "If a goalkeeper, in the act of establishing his position within his goal crease, initiates contact with an attacking player who is in the goal crease, and this results in an impairment of the goalkeepers ability to defend his goal, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed." Following this allowable contact initiated by Price the goalie was unable to regain his position to defend the subsequent shot and the referee disallowed the goal. There is definitely a need to tweak rule 69.3 when a goalie initiates contact with an attacking player. It might even require that the referee(s) exercise their best judgment to determine the intent of the goalkeepers actions when contact is initiated inside the crease. If contact is legitimately initiated "in the act of establishing his position" to defend a shot then the goalkeeper should be entitled to that protection. If contact is initiated by the goalkeeper for any other purpose, as Carey Prices actions might indicate here, then a goal scored following this "incidental" contact should be allowed to stand. Given the glove hand/arm contact initiated inside the crease by goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist onto the stick of Evgeni Malkin, perhaps the referees are already exercising their judgment in this area? Based on the current rule James Neals goal that rolled down Lundqvists back following his contact with Malkin should have been disallowed. Tom Savage Packers Jersey . The timetable for his return is unclear, but the prognosis is optimistic. Though sobered by and concerned about the news, the Twins expressed confidence in the ability of their front offices long-time leader to beat the disease and get back to running the team. Jordy Nelson Packers Jersey . - Jake Patterson stopped 39 shots, including all 17 that came his way in the third period, and the London Knights toppled the visiting Kitchener Rangers 6-1 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League play. http://www.authenticpackersteamshop.com/Jeff-Saturday-Packers-Jersey. He can hide it with the helmet hell need now that hes back in the race car. Hinchcliffe, from Oakville, Ont., was cleared to drive Thursday by IndyCars medical team following a concussion Saturday in the Grand Prix of Indianapolis. B.J. Raji Packers Jersey . -- The Detroit Lions have released defensive back Brandon McDonald and signed defensive tackle Jovan Haye. Tim Masthay Packers Jersey .Y. -- When fifth-ranked Stanford went to the locker room at halftime leading Army by only seven points, head coach David Shaw realized he neednt worry.KENORA, Ont. -- Clarenville scored three power-play goals in just under five minutes during the first period and the Caribous hung on to beat the Bentley Generals 5-3 to capture the Allan Cup on Saturday. It marks the first time since 1986, and only the second time ever, that a team from Newfoundland and Labrador has won the senior amateur mens hockey championship. Dale Sullivan, Travis Champman and Brandon Roach scored with the man advantage in a 4:56 span to give Clarenville a commanding early lead. The Alberta-based Generals, who made the final for the fourth straight year, lost for the second time in a row. Bentley won the Allan Cup in 2009 and was a finalist in 2008 and 2010. Bentley gave itself hope headiing into the first intermission when Joe Vandermeer scored for the Generals with 1:15 left in the period.dddddddddddd But Brad Crann re-established Clarenvilles three-goal lead five minutes into the second. Bentley didnt give up though, and peppered Clarenville goalie Jason Churchill with 25 shots in the period and was rewarded when Curtis Austring and Don Morrison scored to set up a tense third period with the Caribou leading 4-3. But that was as close as Bentley would get as Clarenville allowed only seven shots the rest of the way and Dustin Russell sealed the game with an empty-net goal with nine seconds left. Churchill made 39 saves for the Caribou, while Scott Galenza turned away 18 shots. ' ' '
