Linesmen are supposed to stand on the blue line, Dmen are supposed to know that, there's also this thing called looking before you clear the puck.
Linesman has every right to be mad. Sorry, but as a linesman I've only ever been shot at by crap players at youth and beer league level, I NEVER get the puck shot at me while lining semi-pro.
