I always thought the rule was if the player's momentum was stopped, which it looked like it was, that the play was over and it was whistled dead. The worst part seemed to be that not only did bobble the puck, but he pretty much had to go back/sideways to corral it in order to try to take another shot. Actually, I take that back. The real worst part is, now whenever I play my son in NHL 16 for Xbox, I can't say how stupid, unfair, and cheap it is when he skates in circles and goes around and around in a shootout before eventually taking a shot on goal, because they allowed it in a real game! You got it wrong its the puck not the player that can't go backwards. The puck was moving parallel when it went off his stick and I think the player has a right to set up the shot by bring the puck back. The controversy is was his stopping the puck and then pulling it back that far enough to end the momentum of the puck Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
