Drawman: Well, the basic rule is you try to put the puck in the other team`s net, and don`t play dirty. Beyond that, it`s details. Also, the puck is the BLACK thing on the WHITE ice surface. I hope this clears things up.

I tried to watch it in the olympics but I didn`t understand the rules and, worse still, I couldn`t see the puck.

It doesn`t always end like this. Most of the time, it ends when one of them falls down or gets bloodied.

Blues beat up the Oilers last night, 6-2 with 4 goals in the 3rd period. Several good skirmishes were had and a few ejections as well.

"Is this normal?"

Yup, it`s normal. For the most part the refs will only try to break them up if they get to them before the gloves come off and they`re still pushing & shoving. Once the gloves are off and the punches start flying they stop the fight when one or both players are no longer on their feet, if they`re just holding on to each other wrestling & not punching, or like how it ends here where the players just end it and shake hands like boxers. I`ve seen a few fights end like this before in the NHL & AHL.

Yes, if there isn`t at least half a dozen fights in one hockey match ... it`s a slow disappointing game.

And I thought they were going to roll up maple syrup on the end of their sticks...I guess that`s just here in Quebec.

Soccer and basketball players getting penalties for giving dirty looks to their opponents is the dumbest thing in all of sports.
