Living in South Florida I have to watch Goldie and Billy Lindsay and I noticed Clemmer at the bench and they never mentioned it at all. I was yelling at the TV why is he out of the net? Is there a penalty? No mention at all by Goldie or Lindsay. I have suffered listening to Lindsay since he started he is only slightly better than then when he started. Thanks for posting this because with the Panthers TV team I would never had known. BTW I have Center Ice and really like the Wings TV team.

It’s a smart move. But it’s also something that needs to be addressed in the rules. If the net isn’t going to be fixed while the clock is running, play should be blown dead if the goalie leaves the crease in this circumstance.  Or if you want to be mean, make it a 2-minute delay of game.

Someone had it right in yesterdays LB.  Once the goalie makes it to the bench the back ref should go and put the net back on.  Would probably discourage that type of behavior in the future.  Have to admit though, smart play by the goalie.

Smart move, for sure.

On the bigger “issue,” the NHL should be doing anything they can to encourage less whistles and more continuous game play. I think in situations where the net comes off like this —especially as long as we continue with a two referee system—the back ref should replace the net as play continues.

Obviously, there would have to exceptions where the play would still be blown dead… you can’t have guys intentionally checking opponents into the net to gain an odd-man advantage the other direction, and obviously if the net is knocked off and possession is buzzing around that net, the whistle has to go.

Nothing surprises me with a net being dislodged anymore.  I watched Michigan State lose in the Frozen Four tourney this year because a Union defenseman purposely dislodged the net upward (keeping in mind that it then fell right back down in to place) before the puck went in.  Not only was the goal disallowed, but the Union player didn’t even get a penalty for it.

Refs at all levels don’t know how to handle dislodged nets anymore.
