Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Curtis Zupke of the Ducks Blog,
On the Ducks’ fourth shootout attempt, Teemu Selanne skated in, came to a stop and lifted the puck over Turco, who was on his side and did a two-pad stack to no avail.
It ended up as the game winner.
NHL rules regarding shootouts have dictated that if either the player or the puck is continually moving forward then the play is legal.
Turco gave Selanne credit for the move, but he wondered if the rule should get a closer look.
“It didn’t really surprise me,” Turco said of the move. “There was nothing I could do once you get off your skates. But they should freshen the rules on dead stops, which is not right. It’s not legal, I guess, if that’s the right word. It doesn’t have any effect on our season but certainly (it did) theirs. It’s a good play. It’s legal.”
continued and watch the shootout goal below…
