    Diving is more something you deal with in collective bargaining and force the NHLPA to allow them to fine divers heavily.

    I'd be fine with letting embellishments nullify the original call if refs actually called games tightly, which is definitely not the case in the playoffs

    because it's the cup I guess

    Saw this today and it felt appropriate...

    There are occasions where a player actually has been tripped and so a penalty should be called but then the tripee does a triple axel and should also be called for embellishment.

    Ahaha, the guy who sings the Canadian anthem for the Flames is "multiple Juno & CCMA award winning Canadian country artist George Canyon", and he is EVERYTHING you expect he would be from that sentence.

    Haven't all Canadian teams learned you just sing the first line and then drop the mic?

    That's what Donnelly the opera dude in Vancouver does. I haven't seen enough of the other Canadian singers to know what their routine is.

    I can't stand the guy who sings the anthems for Boston, tho

    Oilers started the practice I think when they made their run in '06.

    Yes, much like playing We Will Rock You, the Oilers also started this musical tradition.

    That game was straight up weird.

    I mean, I can't complain about the results, but there were times when I wondered what the hell either team were doing.

    Kind of want to stay up and watch this game just because Overtime is awesome, but I have no stake in this game as my Red Wings already won.

    This is partially my fault as I was talking with a friend on X-Box live about long overtime games in the playoffs.

    Well, I'm not sure it is actually physically possible for the Blues to play a worse game than Monday's, so....I'm hopeful for tonight???

    Minny is looking really strong at the moment.

    As a fellow Blues fan I hope you're right @The_Infidel . They were pretty much outplayed in every way Monday. Allen may have been the only good thing going Monday.

  • ChaosHatChaosHat Registered User regular
    I do hope the Blues win tonight. The series needs to go 7.

    Some vintage Islanders last night, four consecutive power plays and they forget how to shoot the puck.

    Burrows has been ruled out for the remainder of the first round.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.

    Went to my first playoff game last night. And what a game it was. When Saad snapped in the tying goal, the place just fucking exploded. Really amazing how full the UC was through 2nd OT and even into the 3rd. Although a good part of that was standing room tickets filling in.

    Haha. NBC talking about the Comeau 'hook'

    "That's fine, that's fine, that's fine, but coming up here in a bit, or wait, that last part I just said was fine was the penalty"

    Nice elbow Moore. Right to the mouth.

    Looked like Lapierre was doing his best King Henrik impression there.

    No, Don Cherry. That actually was a cross-check, not "just a push".

    "Even the Swedes are hitting here..."

    Sigh....

  • BurtletoyBurtletoy Registered User regular
    I guarantee you the penguins don't miss "Chris Orpik" whoever that might be.

    Even if you meant Brooks Orpik, the kinda NHL caliber bottom pairing defense man.

    Rangers have more powerplays than shots on goal. (Edit: NBC just said this stat half a second before I hit post. I SAW IT FIRST!)

    Was their PP this ineffective in the regular season?

    Pretty glad the Habs didn't score on that powerplay, that was pretty stupid. Then again, Habs don't score on ANY powerplay. I don't know what's up with them but they are more dangerous 5 on 5 than 5 on 4.

    Not a new one, just a very very rarely seen one.

  • quovadis13quovadis13 Registered User regular
    About 15 seconds before Ottaw scored, the CBC announcers said that Ottawa was the only team to have not gotten shutout this year.

    Yeah, the announcers claimed it was new before they clarified it later. Makes me look like a dumb in the meantime though

  • JayrichoJayricho Ontario, CanadaRegistered User regular
    In your defense, one of CBC's announcers is Glenn Healy.

    iirc it was from the lockout year.

    It was called about 50 times in the first 15 games that season, too.
