I am a huge hockey fan but I am not 100% clear on the rules..
This has to do with the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
So after last night's overtime victory, goal scored by Conor Sheary.. Crosby was called a cheater by the Sharks player LOGAN COUTURE.
In Game 2, Crosby did not score but he did win 17 of 24 faceoffs, including the game's biggest that earned him a secondary assist on the winner. He is 26-for-40 in the faceoff circle through the first two games of the series.
It's an edge that irks some San Jose Sharks.
"He cheats," Couture said. "He gets away with it. He's Sidney Crosby."
"He times them and they don't kick him out for some reason, probably because of who he is," Couture complained.
This can be found here.
Again, I am not clear with the rules, but when it comes to face-offs, what is the other way to win face-offs besides trying to time when the referee drops the puck onto the ice? Or my comprehension of how Couture used the word timing is wrong.
Any explanation is appreciated.
