If anybody has a good explanation, I'd love it.
1. interference--allow you a half second to bump somebody without the puck? seems a little subjective...
2. slashing--- calling more of it? not just the hands? again, seems a little subjective
3. covering the puck with your hand.... i get that.
4. winning a faceoff with your hands is apparently now a penalty.
It's the interference and the slashing, I don't get the adjustment, I guess.
IMO slashing and interference have always been subjective. Players have largely been allowed to make contact immediately after a puck carrier has gotten rid of the puck. Slashing... well... I think we've all seen our fair share of stick penalties called when they shouldn't have been or not called when they should have been.
Kings finally put one past Crawford.
I keep my circle so small I can talk to myself.
