Post r than 46 per cent from beyond the
Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at Hey Kerry We all saw Toronto Maple Leaf Daniel Winnik lying on the ice after the hit from Jan Hejda in last nights game and hoped that he is alright, but a question also popped into my head as he left on the stretcher. While Im not sure many people thought the hit was dirty, I would imagine the temperature of a game can go up when one of the players takes a devastating hit and has to be helped off the ice by medical professionals, even if the player from the other team didnt break any rules. My question is, what role would a referee play in that situation to make sure a player does not seek retribution or turn a situation even more ugly after a hit, that while causing an injury, was clean and legal? Was there ever a game you were in where you saw a clean hit happen but thought you better say or do something before someone tries to seek revenge and really escalates a situation? Thanks, Tom Ray - London, Ontario Tom: I too wish Daniel Winnik a full and speedy recovery from the nasty fall he suffered in the Leafs-Avalanche game last night. The clean check delivered by Jan Hejda is one more example of the need for players to be more aware of their surroundings and expect to be hit. Hejda was in the act of initiating a check as Winnik chipped the puck past him and into the Avalanche end zone. The close quarters, straight up contact delivered by Hejda was within an acceptable time frame to avoid an interference infraction. Winniks awkward tumble on his head highlighted the philosophy shared by Oilers assistant coach, Craig Ramsay, which I wrote about in yesterdays column; players dont expect to be hit and as such are often caught off guard and unprepared to take a hit. Without question, Jack Johnson of the Columbus Blue Jackets deserved his recent three game suspension for a late, careless head hit on Juri Tlusty of the Carolina Hurricanes. Tlusty, however, appeared totally unaware of the potential that he could/would be hit after dishing the puck off to his right. Tlusty proceeded to watch his pass for an extended portion of time and was caught with a head-rocking illegal check that he had no idea was coming. Lets hope players alter this destructive trend by placing their head on a swivel to defend against impending body contact; legal or otherwise. Witnessing a player carried off the ice on a stretcher due to serious injury can be a frightening experience for everyone in attendance. Depending upon the circumstance and degree of injury, there is often an immediate hostile response from the injured players teammates as they seek retribution. The officials must immediately impose themselves in this combustible situation in an effort to bring the temperature down and before a spark ignites a raging fire. If that is not possible, a strict penalty standard must be enacted if retaliation and retribution continue throughout the game. Ideally, if the fire is put out immediately, anger and hostility can quickly shift to concern for the injured player. I will share a devastating hit and resulting injury I witnessed from close range that created an overwhelming look of shock on the faces of players from both teams. I was overcome with a sick feeling in my stomach. Midway through the first period of Game 7 of the 1999-00 Eastern Conference Final between the New Jersey Devils and the Philadelphia Flyers, Eric Lindros picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone and proceeded toward the Devils blue line with a lowered body posture and his head down; as was too often the case. Lindros avoided a stick-check from Scott Niedermayer by drawing the puck back before entering the zone and thereby created an offside at the blue line. Scott Stevens was already in motion cutting through the gap to deliver one of his patented devastating shoulder checks as he had done so often throughout his career and in the series. This time, Stevens had his sights clearly set on the Big E. Watch Stevens hit on Lindros The linesmans whistle blew for the offside a fraction of a second after Stevens buried his shoulder cap into Erics jaw with devastating force. Lindros neck whipped like a wet noodle, his body rotated in the air and crashed hard to the ice causing the back of Erics helmet to impact the ice with an audible thud. The Big E lay motionless on his side in the fetal position for what seemed like a breathless lifetime. Flyers medical personnel jumped over the boards as quickly as the cavalry garbed in white, orange and black on the ice mounted an attack against Stevens. We (the officials) were quick to intervene and usher Stevens to his players bench out of harms way. As Lindros was being attended to on the ice, I saw the look of shock and concern on the faces of the Flyer players and coaching staff. Seeing Eric in the fetal position is when I developed a sickness in my stomach. I recall having the conscious thought of an infant that was unable to care for itself and being fed baby food by its parent/caregiver. Would this tragic thought become the ultimate fate of this great hockey player? I prayed not. There was some relief when Eric was lifted up off the ice even although his legs moved like rubber as he was assisted to the dressing room. I fixed my gaze on the Devils bench area and what amazed me most was the look of fear on the face of Scott Stevens; an emotion that I had never witnessed before from Captain Crunch. This guy was fearless and he had levied more bone-crushing, devastating checks than any player before him. I had seen him kiss his bicep and warn players on the opposing bench that they were next after knocking one of their teammates senseless. This time there was something much different that I perceived from the Devils leader. Scotts face appeared drawn and white as a sheet. I detected a nervous twitch. I firmly believe that he felt he had gone too far this time with a player that had a long and well-documented history of concussions. To this day I believe the fear I detected from Scott Stevens was for the future well-being of his opponent. Had he gone too far? You be the judge on that. Steve Cishek Jersey . 98 jersey in a game yet, and already its a big seller. Corey Dickerson Jersey .C. -- The shot that would have beaten No. ... ys-jersey/. Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He admitted he knowingly had a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a semi-automatic pistol without a license. Steven Souza Jersey . The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams. The plot took another twist this week. Wade Boggs Jersey . -- Ryan Millers debut for the St.HARTFORD, Conn. -- Connecticut went down to the wire with another opponent. This time there was no clutch shot by Shabazz Napier. UConns star guard, known for heroics such as a last-second shot that beat Florida earlier this month, missed three times in the final 40 seconds and the 10th-ranked Huskies lost for the first time this season, 53-51 to Stanford. "With Shabazz, you live with that, because hes put this team on his back a lot of times," UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. "But he could have taken it to the basket a couple of times, but he settled for the long 3-ball." Chasson Randle scored 22 points and the Cardinal (8-2) beat a Top 25 team away from Palo Alto for the first time since the 2008 NCAA tournament. The Cardinals previous seven wins this season came over teams that were a combined 32-41. "I think its an important win for our conference," Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said, referring to the Pac-12. "A number of teams have had some real signature wins, and Im just happy that we were able to have one as well." Josh Huestis added 13 points and 10 rebounds and Dwight Powell had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Stanford which overcame a 10-point halftime deficit. DeAndre Daniels had 15 points for UConn (9-1), which was 6 of 10 from behind the arc in the first half and 0 for 12 in the second. Connecticut this season already had beaten Maryland, Indiana and Florida by a point and won by two against Boston College. But the Huskies could not get a clutch basket down the stretch against Stanford. Randles jump shot with 3 1/2 minutes left gave the Cardinal a 52-49 lead. The Huskies pulled within a point when Daniels tipped in a missed 3-point attempt by Niels Giffey. Napier, who finished with 12 points and eight assists, missed two 3-pointers on a key possession with the Huskies trailing 52-51. Stanford got the ball back with 28 seconds left after a scrum underneath the basket. Napier fouled Huestis on the inbounds play and he hit one of two free throws. Napier missed another shot with 8 seconds left, forcing UConn to foul agaain.dddddddddddd He got the ball back on a rebound after Huestis missed another free throw; dribbled down the court, but instead of trying a contested shot, he passed to Omar Calhoun. His long jumber from the right wing bounced off the rim. "I felt like Omar was the most open guy at the time," Napier said. "I felt like it was going to go in, and I bet he did too." UConn led by 10 points at halftime and pushed the lead to 43-30, before consecutive 3-pointers by Anthony Brown and Randle. That started a 14-0 run by the Cardinal, who used a stifling zone defence to hold the Huskies without a field goal for more than 6 minutes. The Huskies were just 5 of 31 from the field in the second half. "It was just a matter of us being aggressive on the defensive end," Randle said. "Just being active, getting our hands moving, getting our feet moving and getting our feet moving and just hustling." A driving basket and free throw by Randle gave Stanford its first lead of the second half at 44-43. The Huskies closed the first half on a 14-3 run that ended when Napier stole the ball from Randle and found Lasan Kromah ahead of the field for an easy layup just before buzzer. UConn came in shooting better than 46 per cent from beyond the arc, with five players having made 10 or more 3-pointers. The loss snapped a 54-game home winning streak against nonconference opponents that dated to 2007. Connecticut was coming off its annual hiatus for final exams. The Huskies had not played in 12 days, since a 95-68 win over Maine, a game in which UConn hit 14 3-pointers. Stanford ended a 13-day break last Saturday with a 27-point win over UC Davis. UConn plays at Washington, another Pac-12 team, on Saturday. The Huskies had dominated that conference, coming into Wednesday they were 17-2 and had won 13 straight since falling to UCLA in the 1995 NCAA West Regional championship. "Well learn from this," Daniels said. "Were not going to have all the time when (Napiers) going to be the hero of the game and knock down a shot."
