BOCA RATON [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-steven-kampfer-jersey]Steven Kampfer Jersey Womens[/url] , Fla. (AP) Nat this time last year looking for clarity and consistency on goalie interference.They got it when the decision was made to hand the final call on the coachs challenges to the leagues hockey operations department instead of referees.While there is no hot-button issue dominating discussion in 2019, there is still plenty to talk about. The GMs opened their meetings at the Boca Beach Club resort on Monday by going over numbers fr om this season to date ones that show scoring, even-strength goals and comebacks are up significantly.It seems like were just about perfect, Vegas Golden Knights GM George McPhee said. The game is in a really good place in terms of whatever you want to measure.Its just about as good as its ever been, which is great news.Through 1,015 games this season, teams combined to average 6.1 goals, just off the 2005-06 post-lockout scoring surge, while 77 percent of offense has come at even strength, the highest since 1977-78.According to league data, scoring has risen 3 percent over last season at this stage [url=http://www.officialhockeyjetsshop.com/authentic-adidas-laurent-brossoit-jersey]Laurent Brossoit Jersey Womens[/url] , 10 percent when compared to 2016-17 and 13 percent against 2015-16.Come-from-behind wins are also up 43 percent of teams that fall behind have managed to claw back for victories, with 12 percent responding from two goals down while 164 of 990 games (17 percent) have seen teams secure two points despite trailing in the third period.Between 2005-06 and 2017-18, the NHL had an average of 28 players reach 30 goals. This season, 50 players are on pace to reach that mark.The league also trumpeted its competitive balance, with 27 teams having changed positions in the standings since Jan. 1.Its fantastic, Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving said. Its a highly entertaining product. At the end of the day, were in the entertainment business.The good vibes arent stopping GMs from brainstorming for new ideas.They broke out into smaller groups to discuss a variety of topics, including pucks crossing the goal line after the whistle, high-sticking infractions that warrant two- or four-minute penalties, goalies losing helmets during play and player safety.Any time you can be proactive on things, thats obviously the best-case (scenario) [url=http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-timothy-liljegren-jersey]Timothy Liljegren Jersey Womens[/url] , Arizona Coyotes GM John Chayka said. The groups done a really good job the last number of years getting out ahead of things.Among the other issues touched on at the meetings set to run through Wednesday are referees being allowed see video on potential five-minute penalties prior to making a decision, and allowing on-ice officials to see replays of reviews initiated by the hockey operations department.As it stands now, referees only see replays on challenges via the tablet located at the timekeepers bench.We asked the managers, Should they look at everything? said Colin Campbell, the leagues executive vice president and director of hockey operations. Theyre not making the decision, but they have to go out and explain what happened on a play and make the announcement so maybe they should watch what theyre going to talk about. It became official on Monday, ending long hours of impending drama.Dave Hakstol was fired finally as the coach of the Philadelphia Flyers.Lehigh Valley Phantoms coach Scott Gordon will coach the team in Tuesday nights home game against the Detroit Red Wings. He is the interim coach and will, according to new general manager Chuck Fletcher, be doing it for the rest of the year.Article continues below ...Joel Quenneville? Who knows?Quenneville, fired earlier this season after his long, proud run behind the Chicago Blackhawks bench [url=http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-antoine-roussel-jersey]Antoine Roussel Jersey Womens[/url] , was reported over the weekend to be replacing Hakstol as the Flyers lost the last four games of a five-game road trip.(Quenneville) is under contract to Chicago, Fletcher said. I have not asked Chicago for permission and have not spoken to Joel in about two years.The team flew home from Vancouver on Sunday. Hakstol was still the coach. The team took the ice for the first NHL practice of goaltending prospect Carter Hart and Hakstol was missing.I felt pretty strongly I would need to make a change, and it was better sooner than later, Fletcher said.The Flyers (12-15-4) are in last place in the Eastern Conference. When Hart goes into the net, likely as early as Tuesday, he will become the sixth Philly goaltender to play this season.Fletcher admitted this wasnt the ideal situation to bring up a 20-year-old goalie. The circumstances dictated the move and now its up to the players in front of the goaltender.Make no mistake about it; we recognize wh ere we are at, Fletcher said. It is a tight team. I recognize our inconsistencies and our talent.It wasnt long ago that it looked like Detroits Jimmy Howard would be headed for Philly. Instead, he headed into Philly with the Wings, who have dropped three straight after Saturday nights shootout loss on Long Island.We came in here for two points and at the end of the day, you have to be happy with the one, said Tomas Vanek [url=http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-tim-schaller-jersey]Tim Schaller Jersey Womens[/url] , who scored the goal that got his team the point. Especially with (six) power plays (against), usually when its like that, youre not going to get a point or two at all.Howard is 5-4-1 with a 3.59 goals-against average and .922 save percentage lifetime against the Flyers, while backup Jonathan Bernier is 4-3-0 with 4.23/.890 against them.Bernier was outstanding (45 saves) Saturday night for the Wins, who are 14-15-5 on the year as they head into the second game of a three-game road trip.The Flyers placed Anthony Stolarz on injured reserved Monday with a lower body injury and hes slated to miss 2-4 weeks. Alex Lyon was returned to the minors and Michal Neuvirth is back from paternity leave. Starter Brian Elliott returned home from the west coast for further examination of his hip injury and could be out a long time.Brian has made progress but not as much as we have liked, said Fletcher Well have conversations about what the best approach is moving forward. At this point, I would suggest that nothing is imminent at this point.Neuvirth is 4-3-0 with 3.15/.904 lifetime against the Red Wings.
