AS I SAY: BELIEVE. In the case of you do not know about that picture, it is from the crush of the InstaPunk Phyler make by my Montreal Candians in Thursday night. In that picture, I think it is when the Phyler goalie start to cry about all the goal that are score to him. But I must make the digression. I do not come to make offend on the fan of the Phyler here. I already say that I know my Habs win the Stanley Cup this year and I am sorry about the sadness of the Philadelphia persons. Instead I come to address two issue.
First, I need say the Punks tell me they are happy to hear the new writtings from me, but about the fact checkings maybe I am not so careful when I write. They say the post before have many error about things that are not so true. I try to take a note while they tell me all these things for make a corrections, but I already am go to the liquor store for the evening and find it hard to hear everything what they say. One note that I do take on my sheet is about the mistake with who the Philadelphia football team make a trade on. I say they trade the Michael McVick, but they actually trade his brother, Donovan. But still Michael McVick is the one who kill the dogs, and I am many anger about that. Which prove a rule about why you should not trust the persons of Irish.
There are other mistake, too, but you see I am not serious journalist of the big times, like your Keith Onothermann. I am only Puck Punk, with knowledge and love of the hockey, which I try to tell you about because so many American miss this wonderful sport. So I start to think maybe American does not care about the hockey because you do not have the understandings. Even InstaPunk say he is l'confuze about the rule in the hockey. So I decide I must explain to my foreign friends about some important things and then we all will love the hockey.
1. Offsides - Always I am watch a game of the hockey when the offsides is call and my American friends say, "Huh? What happen?" or as the internet American say, "WTF?" Then I explain about how is so simple.
A field of the hockey.
As you see above, there is the big red line in middle of the ice. Then the two blue line on each side of red middle line, and the space after the blue line with the goal make the offend zone. No man is allow to be all the way across the blue on the offend unless the puck go across first. If the defenses get the puck back all the way past their blue line, then the offend players must all touch the blue before they can go back to the offend zone, and when they go back the puck again must go before any offend player. If the rule is break, then the offsides is call and a faceoff happen.
I try to make the explain of this to my American friends, but I make only half through my talking when a glaze come on their eyes and they yawn, then they tell me the hockey is so hard to understand and they ask for me to stop the talking. But when we watch the anyfell football and I ask a question like, "Why is this team allow to advance the ball just because their ball kicker falls down?" they only answer me, "Shhhh! I try to watch game!"
And at least the hockey offside only makes a faceoff. In the anyfell the offside make the ball move more close and close to the In Zone, where the goal happen. Why? No one can explain this. And still my American friends say they are confuse about why players in the hockey some time will not cross the blue line and some time will, or why it is l'import for the defenses to push the puck across the blue line, for then all players on the offend must skate away, then skate back in, and they can get tired. So during this times of the frustrate, I only grab another Molson and try to enjoy the game to myself.
2. Power Play - when a penalty happen, there is the power play. This mean the one who make the penalty must sit in the penalty box for 2 minute and his team is short the one man. The other team now have advantage of one man and if they score the penalty is over. The most a team can be down at one time is two man.
Cindie Crosby of the Pittburg takes the penalty while losing to my Habs.
If it is a very bad penalty, like making the hate crime, then the time in the box will be for 5 minute no matter even if the team score. This is many rare, and l'especial in the playoff, because it is a big hurt for a team to make defend of the power play for 5 minute.
3. Icing - Another thing that every body always question to me about. But it is very easy to make the understandings of it! Remember the big red line on middle of the ice? Well there is a smaller red line on each side of ice that cross the goal, near of the wall. If a player on the offend shoot the puck to other side and it is not yet cross the big line in middle, then it cross the small red line near the goal, and the puck is first touch by a player of the defend team, then it makes the icing and a faceoff must happen back on other side of the ice of the team that shoot the puck.
This rule happen so a team can not score only one goal, then only throw the puck away across ice for rest of game while on the defend. There is one exception of this: if a team is defend on the power play, they are allowed to shoot puck out because they are down of persons.
This is where the strategy happen for playing the hockey.
4. Cross-Checking - Very most simple: this is when you take both hands on the hockey stick, then push them out to hit the oppose player with the middle part of the stick. Like this:
The cross check can make any body into the monster.
So there are good explaination of the most confuse rule in the hockey. Now we all are watching this weekend, yes? You are many welcome.
