from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
“It doesn’t matter to me who is on the ice,” Ruff said, delivering maybe the most important message of the discussion. “If someone is taking advantage of your goaltender, you all respond…all five guys respond.”
Old school? Ruff was asked.
“Old school,” he said. “Everbody ropes, everybody rides.”
Saturday’s cross-check of Kari Lehtonen was confusing on a lot of fronts _ like why isn’t it a penalty when you cross-check a goalie in the head? But if one thing comes out of the incident, it will be that the Stars have a very clear message on what to do if someone messes around with their goalie.
more on protecting the goalie but first watch the cross-check to Lehtonen's head below from the Caps/Stars game a few days ago. The goal was waived off due to goalie interference but no penaly was called on Backstrom.
