No.

Although some coincidental and incidental contact does takes place on occasion, it is at the officials' discretion wether it is a penalty for goaltender interference or not.

No.

Cross checking is a penalty for all participants and the severity of the infraction is determined by the officials.

Generally, no but "technically" there is probably no rule against it. I push around and shove all the time though and usually get into no trouble for it.

In soccer does a goalie have the right to check opposing players that are inside his goal box like a hockey goalie can?

The goalie does have a right to "check" another player, but it can not be compared to what it is like in hockey. You must keep your arms down and you may not kick them, but as to the fact about being inside the box, you will lose your rights of aggression once you step outside the 18 yard line (box) and the ref can call the golie for cheaking a player if its not legel

Can a hockey player be penalized during a penalty shot?

A penalty shot is awarded when the player has a clear opportunity to skate up to and shoot on the goalie without an opposing player in between them AND an opposing player comes from behind (or from the side) and infracts the player (by tripping, hooking, throwing the stick, etc). There is some judgment by the referee as to whether the player had a clear break or not. If the penalty shot is not awarded, then a minor penalty is.


What is viking ball?

VikingBall is a sport resembling street hockey created in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The main difference is that in this sport the goalie can score; instead of a goalie stick, blocker, and glove, the goalie (the Viking position) uses a shield and a hammer to guard the goal. If the Viking can hit an opposing player with the hammer, he scores a point. www.vikingball.com

What are the lines in front of the goalie in hockey?

It's called the crease. And like a pitcher's mound (just ask Oakland's Dallas Braden) it's the goalie's office. A player from an opposing team is technically not allowed to stand in the area or he is in danger of being penalized although, sometimes they get away with it. A player from your own team is not allowed to cover, freeze, or in any manner hold on to the puck in that area. The goalie can of course do any of those things.
