    Default A little help, please...

    I need to wrap my head around these "icing" calls but I can't find a definition of the rule (in non-gibberish English) anywhere.

    Sorry, but I'm still a bit of a Noob to this country... Heck, I still find myself amazed that NFL refs dredge up obscure rulings seemingly on a monthly basis.

    Cheers!

    Say we have the puck...

    If Gonchar shoots the puck before he reaches the center line and it goes untouched past the oppositions goal crease, it's icing.

    Now, if the puck is played by the goaltender, it's waived off. If Crosby comes in and get's to the puck before the opposition, it's waived off. Also, an official will wave it off if he feels the opposition has a legitimate chance of playing the puck.

    Not sure if that was a great explanation?

    Thanks! That's the kind of explanation I needed. I was trying to work it out unaided for a while, but camera positions didn't give me the full view of player locations when the call is made.

    I might get the hang of this yet!

    Cheers!
