Hello everybody!

Aquí va el contexto:

Don't miss the cuts, scrapes and power plays of minor league hockey!

No se bien si estos términos "cuts", "scrapes" y "power plays" son específicos del deporte.

...cortadas, raspones y embestidas


Explanation:
En el deporte de hockey sobre hielo, las lesiones más comunes son las cortadas y los raspones; muchas de ellas las causan los llamados "power plays", donde un equipo aprovecha su superioridad numérica momentánea para anotar un gol, valiéndose para ello de las embestidas (es decir, de la fuerza bruta) dirigidas contra el adversario.
