and what a guy like hextall did in his day has no bearing on the game and it's rules today, no matter how awesome hextall was/is. congrats on the 2 points though...i look forward to the rest of the season series if every game is as exciting as that last period was.
Looks like we have a difference of opinion of what Valiquette's interests were on the play... Regardless, the reason a crease is provided is to establish a domain that the opposing player shouldn't enter (unless against their will). Bottom line is Richards was well in the crease and contact was made with the goaltender. Also, if you had the opportunity to watch further in the replay, the blind Giannone rescinded.
