  1. I still can't fathom how that play didn't get Clowe a suspension, fine, review, whatever. There's videos of it, the league knows it happened, the NHL network was celebrating how awesome it was that he did it. I can't imagine that's within the rules to not draw some punishment after the game. 77% of percentages posted online are made up.
  2. My pregnant boss was reaching for a stapler on her desk so I #PulledACrosby and knocked it away. What was I suppose to do? I hate swinglines.
  3. Round 1 Template: VAN/CHI: 4-2 SJS/LAK: 4-1 DET/PHX: 4-2 ANA/NSH: 4-3 WAS/NYR: 4-1 PHI/BUF: 4-3 BOS/MTL: 4-2 PIT/TBL: 4-2 WC Champion:VAN EC Champion:WAS SCF Champion:WAS
  4. That's not what it looks like at all. If you drew a line in the direction it started heading before Hossa's stick was near it to the point when it hit the post on the far end it would be straight. The puck never changed direction. It stayed on the same path.
  5. No, it's not the same. For Bertuzzi, it's the league applying the rule, as dumb as it is (say intent to blow), it's still the rule and they applied it. Here's the league ruling from the St. Louis Dispatch "Chicago's Marian Hossa appeared to kick the puck toward the net, and a replay didn't show conclusive evidence that the puck crossed the goal line. Nonetheless, after a lengthy review, the NHL's war room ruled that Hossa hit the puck with his stick after kicking it. No explanation was given about the puck going in." So league chose to say Hossa's stick touched it, even though it would have caused it to change direction, even if a little bit. It didn't move it didn't fully cross the line. We'll never know unless we can get different angles. Some will cry conspiracy, I'll stick with my opinion. The league is just that bad at this stuff.
  6. I remember that goal and yes I thought for sure it would be called back. The thing is with that goal, it was ruled a goal because "kicking backwards" wasn't a kicking motion, only forward. Which sounded so dumb to me at the time and still does. Still, that is how the league ruled on that play. Later in the season a goal stood against the Wings with the same idea cause his foot moved backwards, not a "forward kicking motion." Not the same thing, Bertuzzi's was allowed to stand because of how the league interprets the rule NOT because the league decided to overlook the fact he kicked it.
  7. Yes. IF Conklin hit the puck in it would have been a good goal. Your allowed to speculate on that. Thing is, he didn't. His glove came around the puck to the back of it and swept it out. The puck had actually stopped moving before the glove came over it and there was no white in between the puck and the goal line. Never crossed. If Hossa's stick ever touched it, even slightly, it would have changed direction, even slightly. It didn't until it hit the other side. I'm not screaming conspiracy. I decided years back that there's two options, 1) Conspiracy. 2) They are just that terrible. We are reminded game after game of any teams playing how badly the refs and Toronto is. Yay NHL.
  8. I remember hearing Smith said he'd stay and assist while Lewis said he didn't want to assist and would leave if Smith was head. The organization went with Lewis to keep both of them. Could have been a rumor but probably had some truth. I'd love to have his defensive mind on the coaching staff now.
  9. Maybe he was argueing the fact that Bylsma could have been fined for not controlling his bench but no fine was given. The player got 9 games, that's huge. Seems they wanted to make it bad but not as bad as the punishment for leaving the bench to go double up on some guy like Goddard did and was given 10 by default.
  10. Any fans of playoff caliber teams in the East or the West. This is a huge blow to the Penguins and can definitely change the favorites come playoffs. Unless you're a casual fan and don't care to see ahead to what's going on with the league then you should care about this.
  11. I was at the game and all the penalties i can remember were hooking when someone got close to the net. by the 3rd, me and my friends were saying any time there was gonna be a parade to the box of make up calls, but the Wings never gave the refs a chance besides the Ericsson hooking penalty which was a easy make up call. He just went to place body and pushed. i didnt agree with all the Habs calls against but they were right on our guys with their sticks. Best part was the atmosphere. We cheered Let's Go Red Wings, and during the "clap" part they cheered, Go Habs Go! We started cheering, Let's Go Red Wings! followed by a booooooo to drown out the "Go Habs Go!" The crowd was amazing!
  12. Man, people on here are brutal. Nice vid. Crymson, where'd you get that clip? I missed the entire first game and would like to see some of these questionable calls to be able to make my own mind up. thanks in advance

  14. He didn't dive. The first cross check put him a little off balance the second one put him dangerously into the boards. He did lie there and try to sell it but the refs arm should have went up as soon as he hit the boards.
