Kukla's Korner Hockey

Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock is tired of seeing players wear a path to and from the penalty box, but his beef is not with the NHL's referees. It's with players who are dropping to the ice like flies in hopes of drawing penalties. "You were taught at an early age that you don't just fall down as soon as someone puts a stick on you," Hitchcock said Thursday at the Flyers Skate Zone. "You play the game." Hitchcock said that before the new enforcement of obstruction penalties, players did not fall easily when tapped on the side of the pants or on the shin pads.
