Watch the replay, he did.


Saw the replay.  I don't think he realized it was broken until after he went to knock the puck into the net.  I think after he scored the goal, he realized he put it in with a broken stick, but I don't think he thought "Oh hey, my stick's broken, but I'm still going to play the puck".

Agree with playmaker.  Abby DEFINITELY knew it was broken.  The second he realized it snapped, he shifted his hand down over the break to straighten the stick out and make it look unbroken as he tapped it in.  Then he looked around after thinking it was going to get at least reviewed, if not called off right then.  Lady luck favored us today.


He knew it was broken after he put the puck into the net and dropped it.  If he knew it was broken, the instant it broke, he would have put his hand over the broken part to keep it straight, not just let it go bending around like it did.

I'm not sure what the rule is exactly on the whole playing with a broken stick.  He definitely didn't know it was broken when he scored.  It was broken but not yet in two pieces when he scored.  The Blues d man broke it in half, I don't know if that even matters.  Whatever the case may be, we got the win and considering all the good goals we've had called off over the years, its good to get one the other way.

Great win yesterday.  Its always fun for me to see the Wings beat the Pens and even nicer when its 5-1.  I'd be mad about all the crap the Pens pulled yesterday, but honestly, that's all expected.  When you play them, you know you're going to get that kind of sportsmanship or lack thereof.  They've developed a reputation as being this whiny, emotional, uncontrollable team that loses their composure as soon as things start to go south for them.  What's really tough for them is the type of coach they need is the type of coach Crosby, Malkin and others won't want to play for.  Its a tough spot.  


Fortunately, for us, we have a great group of guys, good mix of young and old.  Mrazek was great yesterday, but he was terrible the last time he played in Pittsburgh, so let's all keep that in mind before we go banging the drum for Howard's departure.  As far as I'm concerned they both need to work on their consistency.  Pulkkinen should never wear a GR Griffins jersey again and we need to find Zidlicky the fountain of youth and keep this guy around as long as we can.  On that 3rd goal, I think he broke the space time continuum.  I thought I saw the puck hit the back of the net before he actually shot it.  I was kind of whatever when we acquired him, but now I can't imagine our blueline without him.


If you're having a bad day or just need a smile, ask Siri "Who won the Red Wings Penguins game?"  I've done it like 10 times yesterday and today, it never gets old hearing "The Red Wings crushed the Penguins by a score of 5-1."  :lol:

It was good to see Pulkkinen back in the lineup and get a couple points including the GWG.  I feel like he gets better and better each game and he's only 23.
