I've seen it before. Funny though, the announcers were talking about the shot being so hard and it hitting the pipe so hard that it split in two. That is obviously not what caused the pick to split in two. The shot wasn't actually that hard.

It's like when the glass shatters, it's not because someone shot the puck so hard at the glass, it's just that sometimes when you hit a certain spot or there is integrity issues with the glass, in this case, the puck.

Edit: also, I'm not an expert, but wondering if maybe the puck could have been too cold.

too cold, or earlier in the play, maybe during some board play, somebody stepped on the puck and cracked it. still a hell of a story for the ladies.

I have seen it before, still kind of funny to here these goofy announcer's astonished reactions

Ha, that's hilarious.

I can't help but wonder what would have happened if half of it went in, and half didn't.....or half in, and the other half stayed on the goal l ine or something...

So this one time, I blast a shot from 3,000 feet out and it splits in two upon impact! So, can I buy you a drink? Better yet, you wanna buy me one?

:lol:
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

If both pieces end up in the net, that counts as 2 goals, right? Right??? :cool:

In all seriousness, I think there would be a legitimate question. Not whether it counts as 2 goals of course, but whether a goal should be awarded or not. If the puck breaks in two before entering the net and then both pieces happen to end up in the net, I think it would likely be ruled no goal because the play should be dead the instant the puck breaks, but if that actually happened, I bet the refs would have no clue what to do.

For sure legitimate. What if it splits unevenly and the larger size goes into the net...what's the cut-off size? If play should be stopped dead due to splitting - what about pucks that have small edges chipped off does that count as splitting? Interesting. I think the rule is "the entire puck must cross the goal line to count" (or some variation of that) but at what point does one consider the puck entire..

what if a chip is broken off a corner by a skate and later on in the same play the puck goes in? thats what hes saying. according to your statement it would be no because that little chip would be sitting elsewhere on the ice, but that ludicrous.

What if the puck splits, and the larger portion goes into the net across the goal line, and the smaller portion simply goes behind the net?

That would follow the rule, technically.

I would not be able to listen to a whole game with those announcers, even the 30 seconds of that video was rough.

I actually don't think it was the shot that split the puck. I think it was the result of the dynamite going boom.

I had to X-out the video. Sounded like I was listening to Mancow or something.
