    a goal AND a power play

    If a team scores during a delayed penalty, the team gets to keep its power play. How does this rule change affect tactics? There was a case of this last weekend in Michigan at BG. A Michigan player took off on a breakaway, and a BG player hooked him enough to draw a penalty but not enough to prevent the goal. I'm thinking the defensive player had darn well prevent the goal in this case. What do you think?

    It's gonna encourage mugging the offensive player, even though that's not the intent of the rule. It'll be like any other preventative penalty of this nature (fouling someone when they are about to make an easy basket on a breakway, or committing pass interference on an otherwise for-sure catch): "If I totally take him out, maybe tackling him, then at least it's just the penalty."
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
