"B" Butterfly: Something that a goalie shouldn't do because it's old, let me see that Tootsie Roll.

"C" Crosscheck: When a ref calls a penalty, the coach's opportunity to ask questions to overturn the penalty

"D" Dump & Chase: When a player doesn't trust his 1 on 1 moves and doesn't feel like playing offense he will pass the puck to nobody, and not score.

"E" Empty Net: What other team's goalies look like when playing the Caps

"F" Forechecking: That thing girls like that you are supposed to do before actual checking.

"G" Garbage Goal: If a fan throws garbage on the ice, you have 1 minute to get it past a goaltender for a 1/2 point.
