I never really understood the can't play the puck with a broken stick rule. It doesn't give the player any kind of advantage of his stick is broken

 

It's more of a player safety thing, they don't want people swinging around jagged pieces of metal

If they determined Abdelkader purposely played the puck with a broken stick it would've been a 4 on 4 because his stick was slashed. To me it was a quick play that would've been hard to determine if he did it on purpose.

 

His stick wasn't slashed. At least not causing his stick to break.

 

Abby broke it on Allen's pad while trying to get his stick in front of the net to tap the puck in.

 

The goal shouldn't have counted, but it did and it's nice to get a call in our favor after the Glendening goalie interference call in Washington earlier this season.

 

I'm not shedding any tears for the Blues or their fans.


In Topic: Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

It's not the losing streak that's making his decision hard, its the opportunity to yell at College kids that is enticing him to leave NHL coaching.

In Topic: Mrazek to start how many games?

It doesn't matter how Petr plays or how much he plays down the stretch.

 

When game 1 of the playoffs starts Howard will be in net regardless.

 

Now if Howard drops the ball in the playoffs they might go to Mrazek, but I'd say its more likely that Gustavsson is the back-up by then, and Petr is leading the Griffins to another Calder Cup.
