I agree, but can't help but wonder if the no icing when short handed rule could have something to do with it?
During the penalty, if they lift the puck out they can chase after it and score on a rebound from the boards.
Try the same when equal strength and it's an icing and face off in their own end.
Except for the fact that if they are trying to score on a rebound from the rear boards they have to get to the puck first.....at even strength that would negate the icing.
Unless this was game where they played with that sissy Euro no touch.....ooooohhhh.....nevermind.....
OK, forgot you haven't switched to no-touch.
