Also, I'm trying to compile a list of all the French words for the different penalties that are called during a game. I konw some, but if anyone can share all that they know, that would be great.
Hooking-Avoir accroché
Tripping-Avoir fait trebuché
Boarding-Avoir donné de la bande
Elbowing-Coup de coude
High Sticking-Baton élevé
Slashing-Coup de baton
Fighting-s'etre battu
Unsportsmanlike conduct-Conduite anti-sportive
Holding-Avoir retenu
Cross Checking-Double échec

As for the shootout, both names you mentioned are common.
