"Splendid Is The Sun"
Published in 2003 by Stryker-Indigo Publishing of New York. The 260 page softcover book by George and Darril Fosty is sub-titled The 5,000 Year History Of Hockey.
Split puck
In 1900, Fred C Waghorn refereed a game where a puck split in two and one half ended up in the goal, after much deliberation he ruled it as 'no goal' because the official definition of a puck included specific dimensions and since the piece of rubber in the goal did not meet these specifications, it could not be a puck. He therefore instituted the rule that the entire puck must cross the line for a goal to count.
Split the Defence
When a player or a pass goes between the two opposing defencemen.
