Dude, it was a clean, hard hockey hit. Backes was just playing hard. Huskins needs to pay attention to what is going on.
Blues got jobbed. Don't try to rationalize the call. You can't rationalize the irrational.
The Blues still may have lost the game if not for the PP...it just sucks that the call was horrible, it was made late in a tie game, and it resulted in the game winning goal for Detroit.
In years past if the Blues were to lose a game like this to Detroit, I'd probably be more upset because we'd probably be trailing you guys by at least a few points at this point in the season...but being up by 3 points still...it makes it sting a little less. Still pissed though.
First of all I'm not a dude! Second of all it was the wrong call but at the time it appeared to the refs that he hit him in the head. They were wrong and nothing has come out of it so GET OVER IT! Anyway, Backes is a douchebag and I stand by my opinion of him. If it were the other way around you'd be singing a different tune
People keep saying if we tank we'll get Jones. I was under the impression with the lockout shortened season they are doing a lottery draft for the 14 teams that don't make the playoffs to stop teams from tanking late in the season to get the top picks
Hey, we aren't trying to tank we just are tanking.
