Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. Reid Boucher Jersey .ca. In the last minute of the Montreal/Winnipeg game on Tuesday, Evander Kane missed an open net and the puck went out of play. The officials got together and determined to have the face-off in the neutral zone. I thought with the rule changes this summer, any puck out of play in the offensive zone, even by an attacking player, the face-off was to be in the offensive zone? To encourage goal scoring? Thanks in advance for clearing this up. P.S. - I wasnt happy about it being a Leafs fan, but my Habs fan wife was fine with the call. Ian Campbell Ian, Your assessment of the play is more correct than your wife and the resulting face-off should have been taken at the end-zone face-off spot to the left of Carey Price. Where you are incorrect is in assuming that the revised rule provides that any puck out of play in the offensive would result in an end-zone face-off. On this particular play, it wasnt a new rule application that should have caused the face-off to remain in the Montreal end-zone but an age-old standard once Andrei Markovs active stick deflected Evander Kanes shot skyward into the protective netting above the glass. The puck rolled up on its edge as Kane was about to trigger the shot into the open net. Markov made a good defensive play with an extended reach and was able to make stick-on-stick/puck contact simultaneously with Kanes release. The officials gathered and incorrectly determined that Kanes shot went directly into the netting due to the rolling puck and not through a deflection off the stick of Markov. For future reference, Rule 85.1 (Puck Out of Bounds) was amended this season to provide six specific exemptions that would keep the resulting face-off on one of the spots in the attacking zone when the attacking team is responsible for the puck going out of play in the attacking zone. They are: i) Shot at the net that deflects off the goal post or crossbar ii) Shot at the net that breaks the glass iii) Shot at the net that goes off the side of the net and out of play iv) Shot at the net that goes off the dasher boards or glass and out of play v) Shot at the net that is tipped or deflected by a teammate out of play vi) Shot or shoot-in that becomes wedged in or on the goal net None of these exemptions applied to Evander Kanes shot but the officials felt the puck was launched directly out of play as opposed to being deflected off the stick of Andrei Markov. In real-time from 60 feet away, deflections of this nature can be difficult to detect no differently than when a defending team shoots the puck over the glass. Keith Kinkaid Jersey . -- The Oakland Raiders added a veteran presence to their young receiving group by signing free agent James Jones to a three-year contract Monday. Cory Schneider Jersey . A better question yet may be this: How many times has the same player been involved in both? Morneau hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning and helped the Colorado Rockies turn the third triple play in team history as they beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 on Sunday. http://www.nhldevilshockeystore.com/damon-severson-jersey/ . The Union looked to have grabbed a big win in the 88th minute when Amobi Okugo finally put the hosts in front. But a terrible giveaway by Union goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi handed Earnshaw the equalizer in the second minute of stoppage time, keeping the Union two points back of fifth-place Red Bull New York for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Just minutes after Andrew Wiggins put No. 6 Kansas on his back, scoring six of his career-high 29 points in the defining moment of the game, Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg offered a glowing assessment of the star freshman. "You can tell hes oozing with confidence," Hoiberg said Wednesday night after his 16th-ranked Cyclones lost 92-81, "and thats scary." The nations No. 1 recruit, Wiggins has finally started to live up to his hype. He matched his 27-point performance in a win over TCU last weekend with a dunk that gave Kansas an 81-72 lead with just under 3 minutes remaining, and then added a couple free throws for his career high. The freshman hit four 3-pointers and finished 10 of 16 from the field. "Im just starting to feel more comfortable," Wiggins said. It helped that he didnt have to carry the load himself. Perry Ellis added 20 points, Joel Embiid had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Naadir Tharpe finished with 12 points and 12 assists for the Jayhawks (16-4, 7-0 Big 12), who won their seventh straight game. Wayne Selden had 11 points and five assists. "Im not surprised at all because we got prepared to play these games," Tharpe said. "It was a matter of time until everyone just went out there and started to play." Georges Niang led the Cyclones (15-4, 3-4) with 24 points. DeAndre Kane added 22 points and Melvin Ejim, battling foul trouble much of the game, finished with 18 points and eight rebounds. Iowa State started the season with 14 straight wins, but has now dropped four of its last five. That includes a 77-70 loss to the Jayhawks earlier this month in Ames. "If theyre hitting shots like that," Hoiberg said of the Jayhawks, "thats going to be a tough, tough team to beat." The Jayhawks held on despite a shortened bench. Forward Tarik Black missed his second game with an ankle injury while guard Conner Frankamp did not suit up because of a knee injury. It didnt seem to matter early in the game. The Jayhawks roared to a 30-14 lead in the opening minutes, dominating on the offensive glass and taking advantage of rapidly retreating Cyclones on the defensive boards. Joseph Blandisi Jersey. Just as quickly, though, Iowa State whittled into the lead. The comeback began with a jam off an alley-oop pass by Ejim, and picked up momentum when the Cyclones hit 3-pointers on four straight trips down court. By the time Monte Morris finished off the run, done mostly while Wiggins sat on the bench, the lead had been trimmed to 37-34. "Ive been in this building enough as a player, as a coach, a scout, and it happens pretty much every game, they come out and hit shots early and you have to withstand it, you have to withstand the runs," Hoiberg said. "I give our guys credit for clawing back in the game." The Cyclones pulled even for the first time when Kane buried a 3-pointer out of halftime, but the Jayhawks responded with 11 straight points to regain control. Wiggins did most of the work, hitting a long jumper and a scooping layup while also getting to the free throw line. By that point, a packed crowd that included Kansas City Royals Billy Butler and Jeremy Guthrie and Grammy nominated musician Trey Songz was on its feet. Iowa State made one more charge. Ejim scored to draw within 73-69 and force Kansas coach Bill Self to call a timeout, and Niang drained a 3-pointer moments later to make it a one-point game. Embiid responded with a thunderous dunk, and after Kane turned it over at the other end, the Cyclones intentionally fouled Wiggins on a fast break. He made both free throws, and then added a putback off Embiids miss to make it a four-point trip. "That was a pretty big call," Niang said of the intentional foul. "Not saying it was a bad call or anything, but thats where they took off." Wiggins added a run-out dunk after another turnover to give the Jayhawks an 81-72 lead, and the defending Big 12 champions coasted the rest of the way to its 18th win in 19 meetings with Iowa State. "We gave ourselves a chance," Hoiberg said, "and at the end of the day, we gave ourselves an opportunity in as tough an environment as were going to play in."
