Is Artie wrong on the hockey call?

I thought he just said that a power play was when your team gets the penalty.
Not true.

If your team is penalized, you go to the box and it's a penalty kill.
If the other team is penalized, they go to the box, you're a man up, and it's a power play.

Artie said Detroit was in a power play at the very end of Game 7 the other night, which I believe is false.

Pittsburgh, the City of Champions once again! :D It would be perfect if two things would happen:

1) The Pirates win the World Series. I put the odds of that happening at about "hell freezes over". :(

2) A hole opens up, swallows Pitt, and the Mountaineers win the BCS. I put the odds of that happening as two times more likely than #1. :2funny:

As far as Artie goes, he's not a sports expert. He may not know anything about sports at all, just who's favored to win, and the point spread.
