blackhawks Like Speed Game

from the Chicago Tribune,
Lost in the hand-wringing over the penalties called in exhibition games has been the impact of other changes the NHL is making this season to increase the flow and speed of play. While the zero-tolerance measures lurch along, the Blackhawks seem to approve of removing the red line, touch-up offsides, restrictions on where goalies can play the puck and barring line changes on icing. "It's great," winger Eric Daze said of allowing what formerly were two-line passes. "You have seen a lot of [scoring] chances. Especially on the power play, goalies are moving the puck and you go right back and almost have a breakaway or a two-on-one."
