... and outside of "try to hit the puck into the net" and "you can't use your stick as a weapon" I have no idea of the rules.

I had some expat American who used to describe Australian football as most similar to NHL - as ridiculous as it sounds. But I can kinda see it.

It's an exciting, fast moving, aerobic mess of what looks like organised chaos but is in all likelihood highly drilled and structured with many nuanced rules and tactics.

I'm having fun watching.

It's a "powerplay" when one side has a player in the penalty bin / sinbin and the other side has a personnel advantage on the ice, yeah?

I hate EZBoard Day.

Thats right on the power play. But the team with the disadvantage is allowed to hit the puck all the way down the ice with no penalty during it. Normally the pick would come back to your end for a face off near your net. So they have some help. A face off is like a scrum just a bit

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
