I know that goes against everything that lives inside the hockey player (the mentality is ALWAYS if I can go then I will) but I really think Sid should be careful here. There's a lot of life left after pro hockey is over.

I feel like this is an appropriate time to plug my boy Gabe's article in the Players Tribune from not too long ago on concussions and the shift in attitude that hockey personnel need to take towards them.

That was a really awkward play. I think it was a make up call for the previous penalty that Nashville ended up getting a PP for and scoring. Nash prob shouldn't have had a PP and ended up scoring

Yeah terrible call obviously but I think that's exactly what happened. The PP before it was bogus and really cost the Blues, think it was some sort of really terrible make-good.

Why shouldn't the preceding play have been a PP? You had two guys going at it evenly (Edmundson and Mac), and then Reaves jumped in. In my book, that would be three roughing minors (not a 3rd man in, as an actual fight hadn't broken out). If Reaves hadn't jumped in and grabbed Mac from behind (which is dangerous as it makes him defenseless to anything coming from Edmundson in front), would've been offsetting minors with neither team having a man advantage.

There were some questionable calls by the officials that game (PK's was definitely the highlight of that), but I thought that call was correct.

Refs have been inconsistent for every team the entire playoffs. It's like that every year. That roughing call was iffy. But Ovi slashed Sid in the shoulder before the collision with Niskanen. Textbook slashing. Not called. It happens on both sides. I'll fully admit the Pens get away with shit. So do the Caps.

The Caps can't control the refs. They can only control their play. And they're playing well. The Pens weren't gifted anything. They're down two of their best players. But Fleury is in Cup-winning Fleury mode. Again, they got three pucks by a Vezina caliber goaltender. They earned it tonight.

The Penns literally were gifted that game by the refs and the Caps misfortune. Caps skated, outplayed and out chanced the Penns the entire game. Not much more the Caps can do than that. Need the lucky bounces and need the refs to call a partial game

TheLastPig 05-03-2017 10:29 PM

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Amazing game by MAF again.

Pens were just outstanding blocking shots too. Caps carried play but just didn't get many good scoring chances, when they did Fleury came up big.

This will all be overshadowed by that call at the end, but let's not forget there was a missed high stick that cut Geuntzel just a couple mins before which would have been a 4 minute major.

Maybe, but Guentzel still threw the puck in the general vicinity of the net. Sometimes you get (extremely) lucky.

Shitty that the Oilers lost. 3-1 would have been sooooo much better than 2-2 #captainobvious The whole of the playoffs is so wide open right now. Very hard to pick a cup favourite.


On a side note, I'm happy to see Justin Schultz performing well in Pitt. I was really excited when he originally signed with the Oilers. It's just too bad he got stuck on such a shit team, because it's quite evident he's a gamer.

Yeah. Caps played well enough to win (I thought they outplayed the Pens for the most part especially in the 3rd) and couldn't score. A few calls didn't change that. The Caps just couldn't finish.

I love how the officiating was so bad last night it cost the Caps the game but was right down the middle in Game 3.

Ovi's slash on Sid's head (Yes the NHL has from time to time allowed a 5 on 3 advantage) and the hooking of Cullen were.... hockey plays. Nothing to see here.

to be fair, I think there's a legitimate argument that it was a bad call in OT. I get why it was called since it was a scoring chance, but I can also see why it might not be called either.

Honestly, I didn't have a problem with the call on Daley.

Still had a clear missed puck carry in the neutral zone which led to that penalty.


Like I said, refs have been bad on both sides.

Tom Wilson is a punk. Left his feet hitting Maatta in the 2nd and tried to go knee on knee to Kunitz.


Couldnt believe what I was hearing (well I guess I could) from NBC guys after that. Pierre said Wilson was lucky that Kunitz got out of the way so he wouldnt get a suspension (huh?), then after the game Milbury said all of Wilson's hits were clean, then they showed the knee on knee attempt and he said Kuntiz was lucky.

Madden tweeted he heard the guys on the NHL Network saying that Bonino should be suspended for embellishing.

Yeah... suspend Bonino, but Ovi and Nisky playing whack-a-mole with Sid's head are just hockey plays.

Yeah I saw that clip... former player Mike Johnson said it. I dont even know who that is.

Best part about all that outrage too is Oshie took responsibility after the game. He said something along the lines of "In those big moments youve gotta keep your stick down and check with your feet"

I'd love to care more about the Pens v Caps series. It just doesn't seem like I need to until the Rangers are in better shape. I am very pleased with how they played game 3, but a loss tonight pretty much ends our season. I think the Rangers have played pretty well for most of the series, but those two collapses in games 1 and 2 put the Rangers in a bad spot. They must come out even harder tonight and control play for 60 minutes again. I just don't know that they can do that.

It is amazing how different 2-2 is from 3-1 in a series. Here is hoping for the best tonight!

Didn't see that from Oshie. Good for him.

I am also a little worried about how ESPN seems to be on the Tanner Glass train. I don't dislike Tanner Glass, but I also think having Buchnevich in the lineup gives the Rangers more speed and scoring on all 4 lines. I am not sure Glass being back in the lineup was the reason the Rangers won game 3 :lol

I am very happy that Coach V finally figured out that Skjei and Smith should get more ice-time and be the #2 pairing. What an improvement.

Can't say the same for their coach.

Speaking of which. Sullivan has been a complete 180 from how this team would have reacted under Disco.

On a side note, I'm happy to see Justin Schultz performing well in Pitt. I was really excited when he originally signed with the Oilers. It's just too bad he got stuck on such a shit team, because it's quite evident he's a gamer.

Yeah that sucked. I've seen a lot of ref blaming, but it's the chance a coach takes, challenging a subjective goalie interference call then losing the chance to challenge an offside.
I'm actually a bit pessimistic now - this could be the "learning experience" series that this young team is going to go through so that they are stronger and better next year.

Eberle really struggled, I wouldn't be total shocked (just a bit surprised) if he didn't play next game.

Yeah Trotz has come across as a fatheaded doucher.

Sully on the other hand is the man. I love the promo they run on Root of his "Just Play" speech.

Also, his pre-game speech before Game 6 of last year's SCF gives me chills (it's on the Pens 50th anniv documentary). Something along the lines of "We know we're better. Enough of this. Let's go out there and end it."

The problem here is, who do you play instead? Although I guess with what we're getting out of Eberle it doesn't really matter who you'd put in his place.

Maybe throw Khaira in there and see what he can do.
