Nice quiz. You should accept "hitting from behind" for checking from behind, and "third man in" for joining a fight, because that is what they're commonly known as. Also, isn't a diving penalty classified as unsportsmanlike conduct?

Rats! You caught me. I actually had "3rd man in" as an alternate answer, but I didn't spell it out. I will change it promptly. And I believe the diving call is up to the official, but technically it can be called as "diving".

Where are the misconducts? (Misconduct, Gross, Game)
Sep 27th, 2009 at 04:04 GMT
I believe that a misconduct is a type of penalty, just like a major or minor penalty, rather than a call, like cross-checking or whatever.

"Instigating" should work for instigator. Too many of your definitions give away the answer. Don't use the answer in the definition.

@zycoolman: 2 things. Firstly, it's commonly referred to as diving, but the penalty is Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Diving, just as it is Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Hooking. Also, Misconduct is both the description of length of penalty and a penalty itself. It is the only 10 minute penalty, and can be called for a variety of reasons, but is only ever referred to as Misconduct. I think it belongs on this quiz, even if it is just a bonus
