That's gotta be amongst the top 10 goals in which Pav and Z connect.

Too bad Z couldn't get that goal at the end of the game. Datsyuk pulled some sick moves on Seidenberg I think it was to set Z up.

Obviously Dats and Z have been fantastic so far but Danny D has been great on the back end.  The less I have to say his name the better...very few mistakes and when he does make one its in the right spots on the ice.

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 !!

So happy for the monster, the guy just needs consistency and hopefully become a great NHL goalie some day.

Does anyone have a recording of the "Are you serious?!" Because that was hilarious.

Go to the 1 minute mark.

 

In other news, re-watching the highlights this morning I just noticed how Franzen hustled on the 2nd goal.  As someone who rags on him as much as anyone, nice to see.  Now do it again 82 times!


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

These last few calls/non-calls are an example of why people cry about ref/NHL corruption and the refs trying to intentionally even games up via their calls when one team goes down.  (especially at home)


The NHL never misses an opportunity to fuel the conspiracy theorists, that's for sure.

Monster will be in net tonight.

 

Thanks, Nev! I don't record the games on Gamecenter (actually, can you even do that?), and I was kinda kicking myself at several points in the game. Really entertaining game overall.

 

And that's exactly what I was thinking right before and after Weiss's goal - Franzen hustled!!!

 

What kills me about Franzen is that he used to hustle all over. He was known as a fast player. He worked very hard. And good things happened because of it. That's what makes the laziness so infuriating. And then you see sequences like this one and it's like, Dude! Do that more often!

On gamecenter you can just go into any game at any time and start it from the beginning

I think he does it a lot more than people claim. I saw a lot of hustle from him against Philly, as well.

This game will be on the NHL Network in fifteen minutes.

 

I've noticed more hustle from Franzen over the last couple of games. As Babs would say, "Good for him, better for us." But it's definitely been an issue with him for a long while now. I don't think that can be denied. Overblown? Maybe. But still an issue.

 

Monster will indeed be in tonight. (Unless Jimmy has another last-minute turnaround?)

As someone who craps all over Franzen any chance I get on this forum:

 

He has impressed me so far. I know the 2nd line is still feeling each other out and the numbers may not be as high as we all would like.

 

But his stats were never my issue, it was his effort, and seems to have it every night so far in this young season!

 

ATTA BOY MULE!!!

Of course he does, he's a good player.  It's just a shame that Franzen's image is forever caught up with dumb ass fan's circular reasoning.  Franzen sucks until he scores, then everybody pats themselves on the back and says "see, if he'd just try more he'd always do that".  Likewise, Franzen's inconsistent until everybody  realizes that last year he had shorter goal droughts than Datsyuk and Zetterberg and then it's "weeeeelllll...at least they play defense".  Which finally leads me to, "Franzen doens't play defense" until you see him out on the penalty kill and suddenly it's "see, I told you Babcock plays favorites". 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

There was a point near the end of the game where Franzen had the puck along the boards in the Bruins zone and 3 Bruin players couldn't knock him off the puck. He killed a lot of time and even came out with a scoring chance.

 

He had some great hustle plays but even in a game like that where he played good in between his good plays he wasn't always looking engaged

Mule's orginal "image" was that of The Mule. And that was the invention of none other than The Captain. The fact that there's been something of a total 180 re: people's perception of him isn't just people being stupid; there's a good reason for it. Like I said - overblown? Maybe. But it's not like there's nothing to it.

 

Everyone knows he's a good player. In fact, that's the whole point. He could be one of the games truly elite players if he'd just work on his "compete" and be more of an "everydayer." Also, the fact that he says stuff like "I don't really care that much about the regular season" (not an exact quote) doesn't really help things, perception-wise.

The problem is that he couldn't be "elite".  He can just be really good.  If everybody would stop thinking of his as a potentially elite player then there wouldn't be a problem.  Nobody thinks Sam Gagner is elite, in spite of his periodic spurts of exceptional play and Franzen is no different.

 

Also, he never ever ever ever ever said he didn't care about the regular season...ever.

He did say it wasn't as exciting as the playoffs, which is quite obviously true. The fact that he said it to the media made everyone go crazy, just like when he said he doesn't want everyone to think of him as a goal scorer because he does other stuff too

Great game nice job by Gus based on what happened. I may be in the minority but I do like jack Edwards a lot. He gets fired up for any goal or good play. Sure he takes it over the top with bruins plays but the man loves hockey
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!
