Beauty of a slap shot snipe by the Ducks in the first

Lcsulla 05-18-2017 11:59 PM

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Seriously, not one of the refs on the ice saw that blatant crosscheck behind the net seconds before the tying goal by the preds? Wow, that was some awful vision by the refs.

Lcsulla 05-19-2017 12:05 AM

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Wow, not even just the crosscheck. After regulation ended the intermission report showed a pred punching a duck in the face before the crosscheck. 2 penalties they missed in 5 seconds.

fonzz41 05-19-2017 12:12 AM

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
That's the kind of soft cross check that never gets called, especially in the playoffs. Not saying it's right, but I'm not surprised at all it didn't get called.

It is still a penalty whether it is the regular season or the playoffs. Did you see the punch by one of the preds right in front of the net seconds before that crosscheck?

I hate the Ducks and cannot stand Perry but thanks for winning it and having his shot deflect in off subban! New series now.

Hope we get a ducks/Sens final and the Sens just crush them!

No question it was an infraction. Just saying a soft one like that won't get called. It happens all the time, and we usually only notice it when it's someone we're cheering against. #garageleague

I think I've already talked about this in here, but I actually met Adam Foote at the airport a few years back. It was super creepy of me though. I was in the security line, and about 20 people up, I saw him. I was like, "no mistaking that nose. That HAS to be Adam Foote." But of course, we were in the security line so I couldn't just go up to him. By the time I got through security, he was gone. I had time to kill, so I went full stalker-mode and thought, "I bet he's going back to Denver. Worth a shot." So I went up to those big boards that show all the flights and looked for all the Denver departures, then embarked on my quest to have a look at all those gates. Sure enough, I FOUND HIM. He was with his wife, so I didn't want to be too intrusive, but I approached him, introduced myself, told him he was my favorite player of all time (he seemed genuinely surprised - guessing he doesn't get that much. Not sure why), and then went on my way...

... to the bathroom. To change my pants.

That's a really cool story. I find it funny he was genuinely surprised :lol:lol

I've never met any of my hockey heroes other than riding the elevator up to the press box with one of my friends, who's a reporter, and Ron Hextall and making small talk on the ride up.

Met Gretzky as a kid (maybe 10ish) and got his autograph but was too young to appreciate it (still have the card with me). I met Gordie and Mark Howe a few years ago in the press box, and both, especially Mark, were very nice. Also tried to get Mario Lemieux's autograph as a kid at a charity golf tournament and he blew me off... and then signed and took photos with a bunch of rich people :lol:lol Also met Grant Fuhr at the same tournament and he was nice, as was Brian Propp.

I think that's about it. And that's not counting dozens of interviews with current and former players.

My older brother and step dad always text each other during games, and every time we see a questionable call go by the wayside we just write "playoff hockey." I've always been of the mindset that if something's an infraction on some random Tuesday night in December should be an infraction in the the third round of the playoffs, but that's never how it works.

As for tonight, I'm resigned to the fact that no matter the intelligent schemes Sully comes up with to get around Ottawa, the Pens might finally be out of gas. Sounds like no Schultz, Rust or Hornqvist again. Le sigh.

For sure. They often "let the players play", a philosophy which can impact the rhythm and momentum of the game in a positive way, but can lead to a lot of "what ifs" when potential PP opportunities are missed.

But the crosscheck in question last night... it probably wouldn't even be called in the middle of the season on a Tuesday night game in front of a Florida Panthers crowd. Soft. JR, of course, screaming about it like it was on pair with the one that gave Sid the concussion. :lol

While I didnt see last night's, Ive gotta give credit to JR, he is the best guy doing between period and after game analysis on NBCSN now I think. He actually gets excited about stuff, isnt biased and is generally pleasant to listen to.

Really changed from maybe 3 or so years back.

Or if you HAVE to have it in English:

Hmm, not sure I agree with that move. But maybe the more positionally sound Murray is a better option against Ottawa. I don't know. At least if they lose, they won't have to answer why they didn't try this option. :lol

I think its the safer bet for the reasoned I mentioned yesterday. He controls loose pucks, fluery has started to look shaky and maybe it puts a little extra bounce in their step.

I hope that wasn't brought into their reasoning. lol but you do know they would hear it. Even if they lost the next two games 1-0 in both people would ask why didn't you make the change?

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Very interesting going with Murray. I've been going back and forth about this. I am Murray guy, but i would have gone with fleury. Then again, i know Murray is Sully's guy. Very tough decision

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
I mean, one of the bigger arguments from earlier in the season was that murray controlled things better than fleury, it seemed to have a calming effect on the team. Maf was known to give up early and/or big goals. We'll see

I know this is sort of a must win game for the Pens but MAF has been damn solid through the playoffs, if they do end up repeating the guy has to be on the short list for the Conn Smyth.

Pens need to win tonight. With all their injuries, they can't go down 3-1. 3-1 is tough enough but missing all the guys they are missing makes it even tougher.

As Bradshaw06 stated it doesn't matter who is in goal if the Pens cannot score.

Also, after last year I am pretty sure every team has a game plan for both Pens goalies.

oh im sure they do. But it having not been in practice for 3 games may help.


Some people are flipping the fuck out here. Some dude literally called in to the radio and said he cant root for the pens tonight because they benched MAF.

I was walking down the street coming back from lunch, and im wearing a pens shirt. Random dude stopped me and said "You see Murray is starting?" me: "yeah" him: "I think thats a dumb decision"

This grinds my gears a bit, too. These are the same people who wanted Fleury run out of town on a rail. These people are totally reactionary and incapable of analytical thought. Mike Sullivan is 6-0 in playoff series so far. I will trust he has good reason for his decisions until proven otherwise.

fonzz41 05-19-2017 03:44 PM

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
If I'm going to start a cold goalie, I'd rather it be in a non-elimination game than an elimination game. If it doesn't work out, their backs will still be against the wall, but at least they still have some life and can reassess, going back to MAF if necessary. If it does work out, well, now the series is tied rather than 3-1.

Yeah it was on the fan.

Ill give starkey & mueller credit, they talk hockey, but noone else on that station knows what theyre talking about.


Its absolutely pathetic they have Paul Zeise as their Pens post-game guy. Totally laughable. I know ive said in here before, but my close friend sat next to him at a pens game in 2013.. he said out loud he didnt know how icing works.


The best that station ever was, was when Mueller had the 6-10 solo and dunlap had 10-2 solo. Dunlap was hysterical. Might have been the best talk radio ive ever heard. Now that he's on mornings he has no personality and has become totally full of himself.

I don't know about Starkey & Mueller. Mueller is ok I suppose but I can't think of another nerdy or more dweebey (sp?) guy talking sports than Starkey.

And, at least to me, those guys still only pay lip service to the Pens. I turned them on in car around 5:30 the night of Game 7 against the caps when Madden went to commerical. They were talking Pirates. I said "NOPE" and changed the channel.

I do like Dunlap and listen to the morning show for lack of alternative. Although I float between them and DVE. But, the guys on DVE have gotten so carmageddony too.

Damn... that hurts bad. Could they still win without him? Possibly. But that is a very heavy blow. He played in a lot of situations and despite the Kesler stuff, is a hard-working and versatile guy to have in the lineup.

Yeah, refs have been pretty inconsistent tonight, drives me nuts.

As a Whalers fan (before they skipped town) I cannot stand the penguins but Murray is playing damn good which is even more impressive due to their lack of solid D men!

Tie it up and force OT Ottawa - then take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series!

Roenick having some HOT TAKES regarding Karlsson right now

Agreed...although something tells me Fleury's athleticism saves that 1st goal...the2nd goal was a ridiculous pinball

Murray showed up for sure though which is al that matters

Best of 3 now and pens regained home ice

Damn. Preds losing Johansen for the playoffs hurt bigly.

Home field advantage has not seemed to matter in this series. We will see if it does for these next two games. If the Penns come out and dominate Game 5 I think it's over in 6 and vice versa.

Though the Pens are hardly the world beaters they were last year, but I still like their chances with 2 of 3 at home. Hopefully the offense continues to wake back up. White-knuckling your way to a Stanley Cup is still winning a Stanley Cup. :lol

Any thoughts on that hit on ruhwedel?

It looked bad to me. I know the elbow wasn't extended but it was an unnecessary hit to the head while ruhwedel was already falling down.

They should have at least called the high stick right before. Weird that twice now plays like that have happened to the pens this playoffs

Didn't realize Shaw was fined 5k and suspended for a game for the same thing. Fucked up, you can't make a different standard in the playoffs. Seems the NHL is never going to learn.

No Fisher and no Johansen and Ducks lose Gibson. Starting to drop like flies.

@curtiszupke

"Per NHL stat gurus, the Ducks-Preds series has been tied or within one goal for 89% of the total playing time (284:38 of 319:49)."

Awesome.

So last night I had a damn good laugh about hockey, figured I would share because some of you will probably find it amusing too. Buddy and I went to a bar, we ordered our drinks and I waited at the bar for the drinks while my friend set up the pool table. Two vets are sitting next to me (one Vietnam era and one who is probably still active - Iraqi Freedom would be my guess) watching the ducks game. I asked the older guy who he was cheering for he said Anaheim, I agreed and responded with my reasoning. Younger guy is just watching us and suddenly the older dude looks at me and says 'who is your favorite team kid?' The younger guy laughs and says 'Man, I am just a sergeant so I am not too bright but since he is wearing a Blackhawks shirt I am guessing he cheers for them.' We all busted out laughing.

Out of curiosity, why do you cheer for the Penguins but not the Steelers?

I would say the Penns dominated, its over in Ottawa. Probably a 3-1 score or something

Sens have no shot tomorrow if Karlsson cant go

Re: The NHL Thread (where the Presidents Trophy matters!)
 
Penguins sure looked like crap yesterday. You Pens fans worried? I would have been disappointed if the Rangers played a playoff game like that last night. Pens should have gotten to double digits, but they lost focus. That starts with the Captain. Crosby needs to be the leader that sets an example to the rest of the team. I was truly surprised that they were not able to get it done last night. It is playoff hockey though and it was not an elimination game, so at the very least, the Pens have one more change to put up 10 on the Sens in game 6.

I will be here all day to hear Pens fans complain about the team's struggles last night. I know you all must be upset today.

My first experience with baseball that I remember is 1992; first year Camden yards opened. I think I was 3 going on 4. Don't know how I remember it so vividly. Have been an O's fan since that time. When the Ravens were announced, I immediately became a fan, as I didn't have a true NFL team other than by an association and hand me downs from my older brother.

Never got into hockey until the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins came to the area in 1999 went to a ton of games each year. Became a Pittsburgh fan just because I'd watch how many of the AHL players finally crack it into the NHL. It's just been so awesome. Rob scuderi is one of my favorite players ever. Loved Murray. Rust too (actually have a warm up jersey of his from Scranton). It was so great to see all those guys make an impact last year when they got called up.
