Yeah it was pretty stupid but I'd rather look at it as something that can really piss off the Wings in a good way.

Back about 7 years ago, I was playing in a playoff game against another team. They were by far the best team in the league, and they were beating us pretty badly by the tune of 6-1. In the final 30 seconds, they called a timeout. I was furious, but I didn't show it. I just let it stir up inside while they were laughing at their bench. When we went through the handshake line, I punched the guy who called the timeout in the face with my blocker as hard as I could. It was the only time I got suspended in my rec hockey career, but that was so worth it.

I hope the Wings are about as pissed off as I was. :)

the worst thing about that incident is on the Islander feed one of the announcers was actually trying t defend that action, and thought there was no reason for Babcock should be that upset. Good thing the other announcer had a decent head on his shoulders and actually said its a bad play to call a timeout like the Islanders did.

IMHO Babs should've been more pissed off at the lack of effort his team put forth last night than what the other coach does.

I was at the game and I saw absolutely no reason for there to be a time out in that position. I mean come on, you are up 5-1. I see no need at 4-2.

Overall, I picked a terrible game to go to for my one Red Wing game of the year. They were playing well at time and had some near goals in the first period, but it seems like they were just tired and were not back checking and playing defense at all. They left Conklin out to dry and I am still having nightmares of that Islanders goal horn going off over and over and over again.

Rumor has it, the reason they called the time out was Capuano (sp?) was doing it because Babcock had made a comment before the game saying how we tend to write off teams that don't matter and that we don't show. Don't have a source of the comment or if it's true but that's the rumor...

Isn't Capuano the same coach who orchestrated that Islanders/Pens brawl last year, with Gillies' actions and all?

If we had a player like Mike Rupp we could've iced him during the timeout and he could've punched somebody for twenty seconds.
