NY NEWSDAY Reaction to Islander game (Crosby related)

Postby NYPensFan on Sat Mar 25, 2006 1:09 pm

I don't know if it is on the web but the Newsday today had a lead article saying that Crosby is becoming as much of a problem to the Islanders as Lemieux has been over the years. They predict even more problems from him in the future. Sorry there is no link as I was reading the actual paper.

Yeah, that's Allan Hahn. He's got to be an even worse NHL beat reporter than what's in Pittsburgh in you can believe that. Three hockey teams up here and Newsday can't find someone who understands the game AND writes in a style that's actually understandable.

Last night Rick Dipietro was playing almost everywhere but in
the net. :P REally he almost gave Sid the win in the 3rd period
while skating to the side board.

The Islanders led 3-1 on Sean Bergenheim's goal at 1:16 of the second, but a mental error by Yashin turned around the game. As goalie Marc-Andre Fleury went to retrieve his dropped stick, Yashin shoved it away with his own stick and was whistled for goaltender interference. It's an obscure rule but one a veteran of 11 NHL seasons should know.

"The stick was down. I thought it was a broken stick," Yashin said. "I didn't realize it would be a penalty."


Does anyone believe for a second he really thought it was a broken stick?

It's moot anyways. The goalie CAN play with a broken stick, he's the only one who can. It's interference any way you look at it.

I don't believe anything that piece of dung Yashin says. He lost any integrity he had when he quit on the Senators.

Thirty years of following hockey and I never knew this.

Are you sure DelPen? I can't find a current NHL rule book.

I've seen goalies playing with broken sticks before without getting penalized, so I agree with Delpen that it is legal.

Thanks Admin. Awesome. I guess I have seen this in game situations, but for some reason it never hit home.

I have always wanted to see a goalie play with a forwards stick (with a nice big curve).
