Goalie's being able to use a broken stick makes "some sense", but it is still dangerous, so I'm not sure why they are allowed until stoppage in play.  I guess the rationale is as follows:


  • They aren't allowed to go to the bench to get a new stick like other players (this doesn't address the safety concern though + why not let them go to the bench....if they want to take the risk and leave their net....their problem)
  • There is much less risk with the goalie using a broken stick than other players, this is clearly true, but still, there is a risk so why not have the same rule for everyone?

I'll take your word for it that 5 leads the league....makes sense, 5 or 6 normally would...which puts what the 1978 Bruins in perspective.  They had 11 guys score 20 or more goals that year.

There is no argument, the goal shouldn't have counted, it was missed, take the gift and move on.  Those arguing that it should have counted anyway are wrong.


In terms of clearing the ice quickly as if you got away with something...they may do that, but if there is a review.....the team having left the ice would have 0% bearing on any decision.  If the wrong call was made (and the play is reviewable, in this case it's not), the team would be called back to the ice....even if they are all showering.

55fan....why would you be watching some Devil hockey?  The most boring form of hockey on the planet.  Even when the Wings are playing them, I think about whether I want to watch.
