  1. How about those BULLDOGS!!! Again they are just like the U.S. Postal Service no rain, sleet, snow, lake effect stuff and above all poor officiating are going to stop these BULLDOGS!!!

    GO DOGS!!!

  2. As you can read from my comments over the course of time that I am a simple minded person. Okay, evidently the rule exists. However, until last night noone even our fine WCHA officials knew that this rule existed. Can anyone out there please enlighten me on the 6 -10 c rule to help me understand how in the world is there a scoring chance from 190′ from the opposition’s goal. So if one has the puck no matter where you are there is a scoring chance. Has anyone who plays, played and/or followed hockey ever seen a net get ejected off both moorings with the puck within 5′ of the ejected net and the on ice official did not blow the whistle? Please inform me of when and where you were when this obscure, never, ever applied rule (until last evening only after the whistle blew in the first period when the DOGS had the puck and a Maine player knocked the net off a single mooring) was applied. I suspect that in the nearly 1,000 incidents (playing and watching) of those reading this that the call was never made.
