didn't see this posted anywhere. obviously it's a game late, but i still thought it was both accurate and funny.

He should have just fallen face first on the ice and done us a favor by blocking the passing lanes.

My thoughts exactly. Thank God this game wasn't on NBC or we'd be hearing about Rafalski's nonactive stick for 20 minutes.
Yep - Pierre's an expert on nonactive sticks.
Thanks, good stuff. I'm still somewhat of a noob to hockey (ok, I'm a big fat noob), so having stuff explained step-by-step like this really helps me understand the game better.

I was at the game, but I didn't get a great view because all the people in front of me stood up. Didn't realize how poorly Rafi played that pass.
Now after watching the replay a few times, I don't think one Wing on the ice actually did the right thing.
Rafi's poor coverage
Willy's errant shot (looks like it might have been tipped, but still)
Ericsson joining the rush for no good reason, at the end of a shift no less
Abby watching Ericsson take his position, but not falling back to cover
Flip watching Abby and E fight over the center spot, and not hanging back himself, then reacting slowly when the puck came out
Even Jimmy was a little over-aggressive coming out of the crease (though it probably wouldn't have mattered)
Pretty bad all around.

Had Howard not set up a lawn chair outside the crease, he'd have probably stopped the shot.
Although some blame falls on Raffi, it's mainly on Howard.
