There's gotta be an exception when you're killing a penalty and the puck actually makes it out of the zone before it clears the glass.
The whole rule is ridiculous. As if ever anyone tries to delay the game by shooting the puck over the glass. Even if : It's essentially nothing more than delaying the game by shooting the puck down the ice. Do we have a rule against that ? Jep, it's called Icing and therefore this whole puck over the glass thing should be called like that.
I won't see it until I get home, but I've always thought Kindl had a decent shot from the blue line. Kindl-Smith on the PP might actually help it threaten more, but I'd also think a shortie would be a distinct possibility.
I actually think he's improved in that regard compared to last season. His shots don't get blocked that often any more and it's showing in a positive way.
Do you hear that other teams ? Take our Kindls while they're hot !
