Coaches' challenge, OT change proposed

NEW YORK — Moves to try to increase overtime scoring and allowing a coach to challenge a penalty call are among the rules changes the league competition committee decided Monday to recommend for approval for next season.

However, the five players and five team executives on the committee decided in a meeting to not recommend expanding video review to include potential goalie interference.

In overtime, teams would switch ends after a dry scrape of the ice. Now, teams occupy the same ends they defended in the third period and a dry scrape is done before a shootout. Teams would defend the goals farthest from their benches, as they do in the second period, when historically more goals are scored because of breakdowns and difficulty getting tired players off the ice.

For a coach to challenge a penalty, he still would have to have his timeout. He couldn't challenge calls that are referee's discretion.

The committee also recommended changes in the size of the trapezoid behind the net, who can take faceoffs after an icing and hash mark locations outside the faceoff circles. All must be approves by the Board of Governors and the union's executive committee.

Also, league vice president Colin Campbell said more warnings and fines will be issued for embellishment.

    RHP Alex Cobb continues to look better and better, which could make the decision whether to trade him tougher. Cobb had a no-hitter through six and threw his biggest pitch with a 1-0 lead in the seventh, getting Josh Bell to roll into a double play.

    PITTSBURGH — The acquisition of slick-fielding shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria said a lot of things, most notably that the Rays are serious about making in-season moves to bolster their chances to make the playoffs, with a reliever, or two, next on the shopping list.
