Hockey rules 101

Nov 022005

For the record, the crease rule states that a player is not allowed to enter the goalies crease before the puck, unless the player is in possession of the puck. Hull's 1999 Stanley Cup winning goal was not a matter of whether he was in the crease or not, he clearly was. Instead, it was a matter of whether he had possession of the puck or was he merely going after a rebound? One should know the actual rules before one complains about the enforcement of them.
