other basic rules

there are 3 20 minute periods with 15 minute intermissions between 1st and 2nd and 2nd and 3rd periods

in the regular season, if it is tied there is then a 5 minute sudden death overtime period if it is tied, which is played 4 on 4

if you win the game you get 2 points

if you lose in regulation you get 0

if you lose in overtime you get 1

now about protection. what is it that they are required to wear? the goalie looks like he has 20 lbs of fat on top of him.

clean as a whistle

goalies have their big leg pads

shoulder pads that also come down and protect the chest

the helmet

a cup of course

gloves, thats about it

its the best hockey equiptment there is, because goalies have them painted in cool designs

ah, well these days more and more players are wearing visors, but the majority dont wear anything to protect their face, which is kind of dumb if you ask me

even their helmets really dont go on too tightly, as the straps go like 3 or 4 inches below their chin, gretzky was famous for this

ok how about the skates. now mind you i own a pair of hockey skates instead of figure skates. lol i have no fucking clue how to stop but hey that is what the boards are for, right?

anyway, when the blades on the skates wear out, how do they sharpen them? and are there restrictions to how sharp the blades can be?

umm, no restrictions that i know of

there is a machine that they use that sharpens the blades for them

to stop you actually turn your skate to its side, and use the side of your skate to dig into the ice, that is why when you see hockey players stop some ice will come flying up

this is actuall known as a "hockey stop"

notice he turned sideways and leans back so the sides of his skates stop his momentum
