Net Results



In Ted Cox's article about the Blackhawks [The Sports Section, November 18] he refers to "the league's attempt to open up play by expanding the room behind the nets and allowing the previously verboten two-line pass." Well, he's half right. The two-line pass is indeed allowed, but this season the room behind the nets was reduced, not expanded.

Ted Cox replies:

The NHL has tinkered with the area behind the goal lines more than once. This year it reduced the space a little, but the nets are still farther out than they were just a few years ago.
