Question to Hockey fans in general, Canadians in particular.
So, my friends are telling me about this little known local team that plays some unknown game called "hockey." Apparently, they are a big time team, though no one around here really knew about them before 2 weeks ago, and they are in the Stanley Cup, which is some championship.
My question to hockey fans is this: Could someone explain the rules to me in a clear, concise manner? Wikipedia just isn't cutting it, and I can't very well enjoy this game(which seems like a fun game I would like to know more about) if I do not understand the rules. One of my friends wants me to go to the game on Monday with him if the Hurricanes lose, and I would like to know a little about the game before I go. So, can some of the wise hockey fanatics share their wealth of knowledge to a neophyte?
