Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. New Balance 574 Precio España .ca. Hello Kerry, After watching Nino Niederreiter clobber Alex Burrows with an open-ice hit on Wednesday, do you think he should have gotten more than the two minutes for interference. He got him in the head with his shoulder!   Thanks,Gary Gary: While I do not like the contact that Nino Niederreiter delivered to the head of Alexandre Burrows one bit, a two-minute penalty was about all the refs could assess on this play under the rules. A more meaningful and deserved penalty to Niederreiter should come his way via a Player Safety Committee review of this illegal check to the head. I watched Mike Milburys take on this play during the NBC intermission of the Rangers-Flyers game last night. Mike didnt agree with the "interference" call since the puck had just left Burrows stick. Beyond that, Milburys comments relative to the Niederreiter hit included, "I dont mind it. I think its more than 2 minutes he should have got." (Which I interpret as no penalty was deserved in Mikes opinion.)I completely agree with one element of Mike Milburys assessment on this play; it was not interference! Nino Niederreiter however should be held accountable for the significant contact he delivered with his shoulder cap to the head of Alex Burrows from the side; which by the way I believe was avoidable. For ongoing player safety this hit, and all similar in nature, need to be regarded as an illegal check to the head in violation of rule 48.2—on a hit resulting in contact with an opponents head where the head was the main point of contact and such contact to the head was avoidable. That can only happen if those responsible for doling out punishment interpret the rule verbiage, "main point of contact" to mean "significant" contact to the head coupled with some/secondary contact with the body. Alexandre Burrows lowered his posture to reach for a puck through the neutral zone. After gaining puck possession Burrows straightened to an upright body position, glided a couple of feet and then released the puck. Nino Niederreiter approached from the side angle position with his skates in a glide and his posture coiled (knees bent and flexed) to deliver a body check that would appear at, least through this setup, to make contact squarely through Burrows body. Just prior to delivering the hit Niederreiter stiffened his legs, thereby elevating his posture significantly upwards towards the head of Burrows. From this strike position, Niederreiter slipped his body just off the center line of Burrows and continued to elevate his shoulder that made significant contact with the head of Alex Burrows. The contact delivered off the center body line and to the head of Burrows resulted in a helicopter freefall for the Vancouver Canuck player. I doubt very much we would even be talking about this play if Nino Niederreiter had maintained a lowered and flexed posture from the setup and approach through contact of his intended hit on Alexandre Burrows. Like most players however, Neiderrreiter made the dangerous decision to increase velocity through the hit by straightening with an upward drive of his legs and shoulder cap that had no other place to connect than the head area of his opponent. Rule 48.1 (i) (ii) (iii) provides lots of reasons to determine whether contact with an opponents head was avoidable. Practically all of these allowances place considerable onus on the recipient/victim of the hit. From (iii) Alexandre Burrows did not "materially change the position of his body or head immediately prior to or simultaneously with the hit in a way that significantly contributed to the head contact." The material change in position came from Nino Niederreiter. If the rule verbiage doesnt qualify hits of this nature as a "head pick," at the very least it needs to be acknowledged that significant contact resulted from an illegal hit to the head in an ongoing effort to hold players accountable. Zapatillas Adidas Hombre ZX 750 .Bryant caught a career-best three touchdown catches from Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys rallied to beat the Eagles 38-27 on Sunday night after wasting a 21-0 lead. Zapatillas Nike Air Max 90 Hombre . -- Pete Rose sounded bowled over.BLACKBURN, England -- Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young scored late goals to give Manchester United a 2-0 win at Blackburn on Monday, extending the defending champions lead to five points in the Premier League. With seven rounds left, United is clear of crosstown rival Manchester City and favourite to win its 20th league title -- although manager Alex Ferguson said he is taking nothing for granted. "In my experience of these situations, it doesnt matter what the points are at the moment," Ferguson said. Valencia cut in from the right wing and fired a swerving shot from a tight angle that flew past goalkeeper Paul Robinson and into the far corner in the 81st minute. Young made sure of the win with a low shot in the 86th. "It was a long night. We had to persevere and persevere," Ferguson said. "We werent making any clear-cut chances for a long time. But it was an important win and it typifies the history of the club." Blackburn, which dropped into the relegation places on goal difference, had a goal disallowed when Morten Gamst Pedersens 63rd-minute shot was ruled out because the ball went out of play in the buildup. United kept the ball for long periods in the match at Ewood Park, but Blackburns defence kept things tight at the back to threaten a frustrating evening for Alex Fergusons title-chasing team. Wayne Rooney, who had been dropped for Uniteds surprise 3-2 home loss to Blackburn in December, created the games first chance in the 10th minute. He hit a long pass that Blackburn defender Grant Hanley struggled to clear, but Javier Hernandez dragged his shot wide under pressure from left back Martin Olsson. The Mexican striker went close again soon after, hitting the post from Antonio Valencias low cross. Blackburn manager Steve Kean had opted for a five-man midfield to try and hit United on the counterattack, and the tactic almost paid off when Junior Hoilett forced goalkeeper David De Gea into a diving save after receiving Ayegbeni Yakubus clever pass in the 21st. United had glimpses of goaal when Jonny Evans shot was saved by Robinson following a 34th-minute corner, and Phil Jones headed over the bar from Valencias cross in the 38th. Nike Roshe Run Suede Mujer Online. Against the run of play, Blackburn almost took the lead just before halftime when De Gea failed to punch a cross clear. Marcus Olsson volleyed the loose ball back at goal from the edge of the box, but De Gea redeemed himself with a flying save. The Spanish goalkeeper, who endured a tormented time in the December defeat, produced another fine stop to tip Hanleys header from the ensuing corner over the bar and later earn Fergusons praise. "The progress is obvious for all to see," Ferguson said. "Hes growing in stature and confidence. He made three great first-half saves. David kept us in the game." Blackburn was still proving potent on the break, however, and Morten Gamst Pedersen fired a low free kick that De Gea smothered in the 62nd. The home fans thought Blackburn had taken the lead soon after when Pedersen lashed the ball into the net, but the ball was rightly ruled to have crossed the line before Steven Nzonzis cross came over. "It could have gone either way," Blackburn manager Steve Kean said. "But youve got to take your chances. I thought we created lots, albeit on the break." With Blackburn sticking to its game plan, Rio Ferdinand needed to make a last-ditch challenge to prevent Yakubu converting a low cross in the 77th. United finally broke the deadlock when Valencia rifled a shot in from the right that flew past Robinson and into the far corner. When asked whether the effort was meant as a cross or a shot, Valencia admitted it was "50-50." That was no consolation to the Blackburn manager, however. "We are just a little bit frustrated, because we felt if we could have held on for another five minutes we could have really frustrated them," Kean said. As the massed United fans sang in celebration, Young, on as a second-half substitute, finished Blackburn off with a low curling shot. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
