Thought you guys might like this little tidbit from The Hockey News' "The Best of Hockey History". Tonight's game made me think of it:

"After the New York Americans ice the puck 61 times during a 3-2 win Dec.8 at Boston, Bruins owner Charles Adams demands the NHL introduce a rule calling for a faceoff in the defending team's zone when it elects to shoot the puck the length of the ice to relieve pressure. When his pleas fall on deaf ears, Boston makes a mockery of it's next game against the Americans, icing the puck 87 times in a 0-0 tie Jan.3 at New York. Despite these tactics, the icing rule will not be adopted until 1937-38."

I feel like NYR are going to pull something similar Saturday night
