Not to be facetious, but there's not much point in making a suggestion that opens a friendly debate only to become hyper defensive with anyone who wants to include something to the contrary and turning it ugly....

Personally I agree that the face off play has it's place, however it's a very, very small place. Simply because when we can out shoot teams 2 to 1 and still find ways to lose it makes a plain statement about the importance of the quality of chances over the quantity, and that play is straight blind luck when compared to a drawback and setup alternative. But you can never say never, sometimes you gotta be lucky to be good.

He's a really nice guy too, Carter. Chatted with him in London for a while this summer- class act.

Hey, just blame the wife. Carter is a free man, he's not the one cheating.

Take a look at the goalie during the puck drop. He wasn't lined up with the play at all. Had he been paying attention and not dilly-dallying he would've been squared off like he should have been, and the shot most likely doesn't go in.
Good on Carter to notice it, though. I don't think he even takes the shot if Garon was where he was supposed to be.

I laugh at the people that say this is pure luck. Although it does require some luck it also requires a fair bit of skill..namely great timing and hand eye co-ordination...........yea and a goalie who looked lost.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

I don't mean this in a dickish way, but have you seriously never seen that happen before? Guys try it all the time on faceoffs with only a second or 2 left.

well don't be then..geez...hahahahah kidding=)
