Cleary breakaway (stickless)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I asked in game thread but didn't get a response (and there may not be one)...

But did the CBC feed or any highlights show this play? Our beloved NBC didn't deem the play good enough to show a replay of...

I am curious how Cleary lost his stick, because, with the way the refs have not been calling stuff, I'd like to confirm with my own eyes how he lost his stick (if it was legal, accident, or ripped out of his hands and a no call by the Hawks).

It sucks that he was 1 on 1 with Crawford with just the puck and his skates.

i wanted him to kick it and pick the top corner on crawford :P

Well you can't kick it in or push it in with your hand but I was hoping he would slide it towards the net and then lay down and try to push it in with his helmet 5 hole lol.

There should be an asterisk next to the rule that if you go on a breakaway and you have no stick you should be allowed to kick it at the net. As rare as that instance is.. Abby was standing there with no one between him and the goalie all wtf do I do?

I elect they revisit this rule and award Abby a free penalty shot to start game 4.

I think that's only a rule in Russia. I believe the KHL doesn't allow goals to count when they go in off any part of your body. A header would be legal in the NHL.

When it happened, my first thought was that wouldn't stop Datsyuk. At worst he'd kick it out front in a scoring chance for a trailer, or he'd kick it up in the air and attempt to head it in.

Thanks for the vid. Does the stick have to break for it to be called a slash? Or is it judgement and even if it doesn't break you can still get a slashing? Breakage means 100%, judgement otherwise?

Did anyone see karlsson put his skate on top of the puck and kick it to an open man for a scoring chance? That wad sick. Too bad there was nobody for Abby to pass to

Z does that fairly often along the boards. He steps on the puck so it's really hard for a guy to dig out with his stick, then he looks around and kicks it to a teammate.

I know, so does datsyuk sometimes. It looks cooler in open ice though
