Watching The Pre-Game

from the Toronto Star,

The NHL will not break policy and place referees on the ice for the pre-game warmup leading into tonight’s game between the Maple Leafs and Rangers.

But the league will be watching in case there is a repeat of a potentially ugly incident that occurred the last time New York came to town. Before that game, Rangers super-pest Sean Avery almost came to blows with Toronto’s Darcy Tucker as the two exchanged insults at the centre line.

A referee, however, will be standing in one of the corridors watching the warmups and the league has asked TV crews to film the skate, a practice that has become common across the league since early in the season.
