The parade to the penalty box will continue in the regular season as NHL players and coaches grow accustomed to rule changes and the league's zero tolerance towards officiating. Sources tell Sportsnet the NHL's competition committee had a conference call on Monday night and all agreed the new system of rules is working. The group discussed problem areas like in front of the net and in the corners and intend to allow physical play in the locations - body on body, pushing and fending - however stick work and cross-checks will continue to be called instantly. The committee is also pleased with the results they're seeing with the elimination of the red line and firmly believe the end product will be more entertaining.
