Kukla's Korner Hockey

During the Coyotes' 6-4 loss to Anaheim last week, Ducks forward Chris Kunitz led a rush. After making a pass, Kunitz continued into Joseph, jostling him enough that the netminder could not react across the net to stop a wide-open shot by Andy McDonald. No penalty was called and the Ducks went up 2-1 en route to a victory in which the Coyotes blew leads of 3-1 and 4-2. Joseph's suggestion? Why not have a video monitor in the timekeeper's booth and allow each team one challenge on a goal per game. In this case, if the video replay showed that Joseph was interfered with, then the goal would be wiped out and a penalty would be called against the Ducks. If the review showed there was no foul, then the Coyotes would be assessed a delay of game penalty. "That was absolutely goaltender interference. Absolutely," Joseph told ESPN.com after the game. "Give us one challenge. They do it in the NFL and they're a pretty successful league."more
