#2509173 4/13 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Blues 0

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 13 April 2014 - 11:58 AM

Bad call. The penalty was committed after the shot was taken. That should be a good goal.

 

Under technicality, yes, it should have been a goal.  However, the spirit of the rules is that you can't interfere with them.  Imagine if there was a Blues player hacking away at Jimmy every time they released a slapper.

 

It sucks, but I think the ref made a good call.

I hope he's punished just like anyone else.  Drunk driving kills folks, taking sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers away from families forever.  I wish Mr. Malone luck with any alcohol issues he may have.

The game Crosby sucker punched Zetterberg and then complained after the game that Howard had no business coming in and face washing him because it was a fight between him and Z was the day he lost whatever shed of dignity he had left .

 

Yup.  Z was clear that he wanted no piece of Crosby.  He was probably afraid that NBC and the league would come down on him if he beat him up.

 

Crosby is a whiner and a punk.  I hope he recovers from his concussion stuff, but if he doesn't and has to retire I won't lose any sleep.

Tatar has a wicked shot, he sure can find these corners!

That should have been a goal, but with all the BS we've received for this kind of similar call I don't feel too bad.

I am excited for next year, but I'll be really bummed if we miss the playoffs.  I hate baseball.

Oh crap, these refs are going to be in trouble, they just called a penalty on Columbus!

I can't stand cities where they play the same utterly stupid song after every goal.

I love how Gus looked back and saw how much space he had and knew that he could do anything he wanted.

If that's a wild player running Jimmy like that, I'd want a penalty.

Late hit on the offside call anyways

 

Yeah, I'll make you a bet he won't try that again!

 

Even if Tatar went alone, that's a penalty worth taking.  You've got to protect yourself.

Agreed.  And why not just chalk up the OT to home ice advantage and not switch. 

 

Yup, instead the fans are robbed of one of the most exciting and rewarding plays in hockey, the breakaway.


Would they PLEASE stop showing Crysby already...

I hate Bernier

 

That will be the big story of the day if our fortunes don't change.  He's been rock solid.
