The Blackhawks had a disappointing loss to the the Nashville Predators on Monday night, the team that they’re hoping to pass in the race for playoff spot. One of the goals they gave up was due in part to the NHL’s rule regarding a player losing his helmet: if a skater’s helmet comes off, and he cannot immediately put it back on, he must head to the bench or his team will be penalized. Nashville forward, Tanner Jeannot, was able cash in when Connor Murphy skated to the bench to avoid a penalty after his helmet was knocked off. Troy Murray, a former NHL defenseman who entered the league when helmet were made manatory, joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to share his thoughts on the rule.
