#1 conversation by telling Mike to relax and enjoy the game. von miaowang123 20.05.2019 04:15

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Keep up the great work Kerry, always enjoy reading your posts at TSN. Maybe you can use these questions, not game related but more on the officials. Is there any talk among the officials between periods of play on the ice, meaning players to watch out for, the flow of the game, etc.? Also, what happens after a game? Are the officials contacted by the NHL regarding certain calls, review of the game, certain plays? In general, the life of an on-ice official once they arrive at the rink until they board their next flight to a new city. Thanks, Paul Kukla - Kuklas Corner Hi Paul: Thank you for the shout-out and your general question that allows me to provide a dressing room full of insights presented in this lengthy column, which I hope you find both informative and interesting. I likewise enjoy reading the extensive material you assemble and update frequently on Kuklas Corner. Lets begin by thinking back in time to an NHL that allowed the Officials to demonstrate their unique and individual personality even to the point of having their names on the back of their jerseys. The personalities that you saw on the ice were in most cases a glimpse of what you might expect from inside the officials locker room. Highly respected Hall of Fame linesman John DAmico was a very intense individual on and off the ice. John began his mental preparation no later than the day before the game was to take place; sometimes even sooner. No one prepared himself for a game like John DAmico, which perhaps contributed to his ongoing psoriasis condition. He arrived at the rink early with his game face on and was quite superstitious. As a result, I would describe John as somewhat eccentric and definitely a creature of habit. He always sat in the same seat, unpacked and set up his gear methodically and put it on in the exact same order night in and night out. John was all business and very intense. He liked his quiet space in the dressing room to focus and wasnt afraid to tell you so if the room was too noisy for his liking. One time, as a young referee, I was chastised by this Grizzly Bear in Zebra stripes when I was doing aerobics to music in the dressing room. I immediately took my warm-up into the hallway outside the room. John was really a powerful man and would put his face in front of a punch to protect a player from a cheap shot once he entered the altercation. Many times his face was bloodied as a result but he never flinched. DAmico protected the referees in the same way. John DAmico was one of the best linesmen in the history of the game. Leon Stickle was another excellent linesman but demonstrated the total opposite personality of John DAmico. Big Stick was a fun loving guy that constantly cracked jokes in the dressing room to relieve nervous energy and tension. His warm-up consisted of a cup of coffee, a smoke and a joke. Leon laughed at his own jokes harder than any who he told them to. After games in the bar he would introduce himself as, Leon Tickle spelled with an S. The night prior to and after games in Montreal you could usually find Leon in a jovial mood playing the drums on stage with the band at the LAnge Bleu (Blue Angel Bar). Everybody loved Leon, perhaps with the exception the Philadelphia fans who remember his missed offside in the deciding game of the Stanley Cup Final against the NY Islanders. Everybody makes mistakes and he tried not to beat himself up over it. I once asked Stick how he missed such an obvious off-side and he responded that he was much better on the close ones! Even though he took the missed call to heart and it bothered him that entire summer being the professional that he was, Leon recognized the need to move forward with a positive attitude and eliminate such mistakes in the future. As a 22 year old NHL contracted referee working in the minor professional leagues I received a call from Scotty Morrison early one Sunday morning in April of 1975. Scotty asked me to get to Philadelphia right away to replace linesman Claude Bechard who was injured the night before in a game on Long Island. There was obviously nobody else available for Scotty to have to send me to work as a linesman in a game involving the Broad Street Bullies and the Atlanta Flames. I was extremely nervous but took some comfort in working the game with two veteran officials, referee Wally Harris and big Leon Stickle. Stick and I broke up one fight early and I settled in and felt comfortable as the game progressed. By the middle of the third period the Flyers were up 5-2 and as Leon handed me the puck to conduct an end zone face-off. Stickle then told me to wait for his signal because there was a TV commercial timeout. I told Bobby Clarke and the Atlanta center to hold on because of the television delay. We were all waiting patiently at the face-off circle when finally Wally Harris skated over and said, Can I ask what the hell youre waiting for to drop that puck? I told him I was waiting for Leons signal that the commercial timeout was finished. Harris scowled at me and said, You dumb-ass, the game isnt even televised! Drop the puck and lets get the hell out of here before they (the Flyers) wake up! Harris then added, And dont listen to Stickle anymore. Big Leon was standing at the blue line laughing to the point of tears. The games were tough and we worked hard but we definitely had a lot of fun. By contrast, every game is now televised and the officials calls are much more scrutinized than ever before. That includes the analysis I provide in this column and on Twitter (@kfraserthecall), which often does not endear me with my former colleagues! (Everyone has to wear their Big Boy Pants at times.) Heck, the refs are even wearing helmet cams to provide fans with a glimpse of what they are looking at throughout the game. While the modern game is much more business oriented in all aspects, the varied personalities can still be demonstrated in the officials room, even if not so much on the ice. Guys respect each others space and method of preparation. Far more emphasis and effort is spent on pre-game physical preparation. Stationary bikes are available and many officials also incorporate plyometric workout exercises for quick foot speed and stretching as part of their regular warm-up routine. Flat-screen televisions are standard in each dressing room, as is a telephone to call the in-house video review official or dial directly to the Situation Room in Toronto. The calling capability goes both ways! Once the officials have completed their individual physical warm-up there is always a discussion around the room about the game at hand. I never failed to pick up the game press notes in advance to look at stats from previous meetings between the two teams, in addition to anything we should be aware of before stepping onto the ice; forewarned is forearmed as they say! I would review procedures with my referee partner concerning areas of coverage, including individual responsibilities during transitional play, finishing of checks and gap coverage, and to avoid making long distance calls by the neutral zone referee if his partner was in good position and looking at the play. The crew might also discuss individual player tendencies and the need for heightened awareness when certain individuals were on the ice; especially those that were prone to crease crashing, diving and embellishment. During intermission the officials return to the quiet of the dressing room to relax and hydrate. A period recap is quickly done and each official can share his perspective on how things are progressing. They once again revisit player tendencies as demonstrated thus far. That would include players going hard to the net, contact in and around the crease and whatever the game had presented for them to that point. The television is often tuned to the intermission report and replays become available for the officials to get a second look. Sometimes they will dial into another game being played around the League. Intermission also provides an opportunity to communicate with each other away from the noise and pace of the game. Every game has a heartbeat and the best officials will always feel the pulse of the game in the moment. The game pulse will dictate what action might be required to calm the game or to just stay out of the way and let em play. On occasion the hot-line telephone even rings. By way of example, I had a game in the Boston TD Garden in late March of my final season. With just over a minute remaining in the first period Mike Brown of the Ducks jumped Milan Lucic, catching the Bruins tough guy off guard. Brown tapped Lucic with a solid punch or two to the head before he knew what hit him. A quick fight resulted before they both hit the ice and the linesmen moved in quickly. Lucic was really pissed and I could tell this thing was far from over. I instructed the linesmen to escort both players off the ice to their respective dressing room. The period ended and I immediately searched out Bruins Coach Claude Julien. I told the coach I was concerned that Lucic was going to seek revenge against Brown. With the playoffs just around the corner I thought it in their best interest if Claude calmed his player down to avoid the potential for a suspension. Coach Julien advised me that they evaluated Lucic as a result of the head contact and were taking precautionary measures to have him get undressed. Lucic would not return to the game. I was no sooner in our dressing room than the phone rang beside my locker stall. Mike Murphy, V.P. of Hockey Operations, was on the other end of the line and in an excited tone said he was very nervous about the Lucic situation. I really like Murph and have the utmost respect for him but I laughed out loud and asked what he was nervous about? I then informed Mike we had everything under control in Boston and that Lucic was getting undressed and would not return to action. I finished our conversation by telling Mike to relax and enjoy the game. I guess Big Brother is always watching over the officials shoulder and prepared to make a long distance call of their own when they deem it necessary. We felt the pulse in that game and addressed the situation prior to receiving the phone call. That is what referees are supposed to do. At the conclusion of the game the Official Scorer brings in the game sheet for the referee(s) to sign. If there was a game misconduct or special situation in the game that requires a written report by the referees that information is also provided by the Scorer. Reports are completed on an NHL software program contained on the laptop each official is provided. One official per game is also responsible to file an ice condition report that goes to Dan Craig, The Iceman who does an amazing job. The crew then drives the rental car back to the designated hotel (Marriott) and they quickly unpack their gear to dry out (My wife Kathy never quite got used to the odor of drying equipment in the hotel room whenever she joined me on the road?). The guys rendezvous in the lobby and make plans to grab a bite to eat and some adult beverages to unwind from the game, either in the hotel or their favorite local establishment. If they are lucky they have back-to-back games in the same city and can set up camp for a couple of days. If not, they pack up in the morning and fly to the next destination and the routine starts all over again. Justin Britt Jersey .

Tre Flowers Jersey .com) - The San Antonio Spurs will try to even their series with the Dallas Mavericks Monday night when the two teams collide at American Airlines Arena for Game 4.TORONTO -- Two months after being sent to the minors following a tantrum at being pinch-hit, outfielder Kevin Pillar is back with the Blue Jays. Pillar was demoted after video showed him tossing his bat in disgust after being pulled in a game against the Yankees. At the time, Toronto manager John Gibbons explained the move by saying "there was no room for selfish play." Pillar, 25, said he had talked to Gibbons about the incident and was relieved that it was considered "water under the bridge." "Leaving under those circumstances weighed pretty heavy on me when I first went down there (to Buffalo)," the player said. Pillar said he will continue to play with emotion but added "Its just abut controlling the emotions and understanding that at this level the cameras always on you. "You cant have a moment of weakness, a lapse of judgment like I did. Its definitely a lesson learned and I went down there (to Buffalo) and just became a better person for it. And really wanted to prove to this organization that what happened was a one-time thing and it wont happen again and I learned from it." The Jays wasted little time using Pillar. With Colby Rasmus said to be uunder the weather, Pillar started Tuesday night in centre field against the visiting Boston Red Sox.dddddddddddd Pillar said he took his medicine in the minors. "I went down there and I did what I thought I was capable of doing -- went out there and played hard," he said prior to Tuesdays game. "I was a good teammate, tried to be a leader in the clubhouse and help that team make the playoffs." Pillar also racked up some impressive numbers. In 100 games for Buffalo, he hit .323 with 39 doubles, three triples, 10 homers and 59 RBIs. That earned him selection as an International League all-star. It also won him a third stint with Toronto this season. "Pillars been playing so good down there," Gibbons said. "We still think weve got a pretty good player there." The Jays sent outfielder Nolan Reimold to triple-A Buffalo to make room for Pillar. "Reimolds been struggling a little bit. And he wasnt getting a whole lot of playing time," said Gibbons. "It just kind of all came together." The 31-year-old Reimold hit .212 in 22 games for the Jays. Prior to Tuesday nights game, Pillar was hitting .225 in 26 games for the Jays this season Wholesale MLB Orioles Jerseys Red Sox Jerseys From China Discount Yankees Jerseys Online Rays Jerseys For Sale Blue Jays Jerseys From China Wholesale MLB White Sox Jerseys Indians Jerseys For Sale Tigers Jerseys From China Wholesale MLB Astros Jerseys Cheap Baseball Angels Jerseys Athletics Jerseys From China Mariners Jerseys For Sale Cheap Baseball Rangers Jerseys Braves Jerseys For Sale Discount Marlins Jerseys Online Discount Mets Jerseys Online Phillies Jerseys From China Wholesale MLB Nationals Jerseys Cubs Jerseys From China Discount Reds Jerseys Online Brewers Jerseys From China Wholesale MLB Pirates Jerseys Wholesale MLB Cardinals Jerseys Diamondbacks Jerseys For Sale Rockies Jerseys For Sale Discount Dodgers Jerseys Online Discount Padres Jerseys Online Giants Jerseys For Sale ' ' '
