'new to hockey' websites?

I've got some friends, many of them not from the US or Canada, that are interested in learning more about hockey, and i'm having a difficult time trying to explain everything to them. Does anyone know of any sites that have pictures of like the ice surface, and explains the basic gist of the game and also has some of the more common rules and such?

Then they can watch series about how tough hockey fans are when watching games.

And then there is "Relax it's just a game!".

This might help. It's from the company who will produce EHM:FE!

Sorry, I don't know of any sites offhand (check the NHL site, and sites of recent expansion teams and ECHL, UHL, etc. teams*) but it always warms my heart to hear stories of hockey evangelism.

*i.e. The Las Vegas Wranglers website: http://www.lasvegaswranglers.com/hockey101/
