Good point, the back ref should be watching the play away from the puck.
But we see how well that's working.
If they give the refs the ability to waive off calls it would be great, maybe we see the first ref vs. ref fisticuff!! That's entertainment.
Yeah, the way I've heard it described is the low ref (below goal line) keeps his eye on the net and the crease and any play that drops below the line into the corners. The far official watches the slot and everything on the wings.
In a perfect world.....
