Ovie yesterday astutely noted that the ice at MSG is bad. That's pretty obvious and yet never discussed.
The Rangers clearly have a big advantage on the perennial slush vs. the visitors. Does the NHL actually regulate ice conditions? What are the tolerances? Do they allow for slushy conditions.
Granted, the venue in question is a center of many activities that tend to raise the temps, but this should not be an excuse for allowing the ice to deteriorate during an NHL game.
There definitely should be huge fines for failing to meet a minimum that is conducive to player health and parity. Does anyone know if this regulated and, if so, how?
