‘Cheating’ During Faceoffs Nothing New to NHL, Despite Complaints From Maple Leafs (Video)

NESN’s Dale Arnold, Tom Caron and Barry Pederson took some time before Wednesday’s game to break down how the Bruins might be bending the rules at the dot to their advantage. Check out the demonstration in the video above.
