Wings’ Mrazek Whistled Down on Attempted OT Pass

Detroit Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek was having a solid night between the pipes.  With the Wings and Blue Jackets tied at 1-1 in overtime, he seized the opportunity to make a play. After a terrific save on  Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray, Mrazek looked up ice.  He took two strides out of the crease and dropped the puck, looking to make a homerun pass to Pavel Datsyuk, all alone at center ice. That’s when referee TJ Luxmore blew the whistle. Mrazek was furious, skating right over to Luxmore.  After the game, the Wings’ netminder explained what happened.  “I was...

Rangers’ Miller Given Match Penalty for Tape on Hands

The Hanson Brothers may have made putting on the foil famous. So much so that it’s something the NHL expressly prohibits when it causes injury. The NHL’s ban applies to tape or any material on the hand during a fight, as New York Rangers forward J.T. Miller recently found out. Miller was given a match penalty for fighting and causing injury with tape on the hands, per 46.15: 46.15 Match Penalty – Any player wearing tape or any other material on his hands (below the wrist) who cuts or injures an opponent during an altercation will receive a match penalty in...

Coyotes’ Domingue Calls Out Officials After Loss

Arizona Coyotes goaltender Louis Domingue was not happy with the officials after a 3-2 loss to the league-leading Washington Capitals.  He was particularly upset after what he thought was a slow whistle with the puck covered.  “It’s another weird call by the refs that, to me, cost us the game,” Domingue said after the game. “I’m expecting that they treat every guy the same way, and I felt like because I don’t have many games in this league I’m being treated differently [than other goaltenders.]  I think that if Holtby would have covered the puck this way, they would have...
