Something interresting in Philly concerning HS double-minor

Hi all,

In the 3rd period of Habs-Flyers game, Mike Knuble gets high-sticked by a falling down Francis Bouillon. Knuble bleeds, so Bouillon gets awarded a 2x minor.

The game restarts, with Mike Knuble on the ice, but the game is quickly stopped again for some reason I don't remember (not a goal, likely a freezing by Aebischer). Then, one of the Refs orders Mike Knuble to go to his bench. What I understood from this, is that an high-sticked player who's cut must automatically go to the bench, even if there's no dripping blood, as was the case. This was also RDS play-by-play guy understanding of it. I wasn't aware at all of this rule, and still don't know if it's actually a rule, or just an over-interpretation by Chris Lee.

The true question is : If there would be a goal in such situation, would it be given or overruled due to "ineligibility" of, as in the case, Knuble?

"Injured" players cannot come into the game on the following face off. A double minor for high-sticking indicates an injury, so Knuble has to go to the bench.

It was actually unfortunate for Montreal that the penalty was 4 minutes because the high stick opened up an old cut. A rules a rule, just a bad break.

It's true though, if a player is bleeding, he has to get patched up. The blood was running down his nose.

It's also a rule that it's not a penalty if the player who was hit with the high stick caused the stick to be there in the first place, but the refs conveniently ignored that one too. Perhaps they're just dumb.

kinda what happened tonight in Phoenix

Lang got a double minor for being hit, and his stick coming up after being run over.
