Coaches Making Adjustments

from the Columbus Dispatch,

The NHL is defensive about its enforcement of the rule book.

Yesterday, NHL director of hockey operations Colin Campbell said the league is constantly on guard against letting the rule fall by the wayside.

“I haven’t seen that slip, but maybe it’s something we need to take a look at,” he said. “I’ll tell you this: It has always been a difficult question.

“How much time do you have to play the man before it’s interference? How much space do you have? … I think our guys do a pretty good job of calling the penalty right.”

Part of the issue, Blue Jackets coach Ken Hitchcock said, is that coaches have spent the past two seasons making adjustments.
