#2499745 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 23 March 2014 - 07:14 PM

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.

I don't think it was intentional.

Pittsburgh is losing, and I'm smiling.




#2417683 Visors Required - New NHL Players in '13-'14

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 04 June 2013 - 07:24 PM

http://www.nhl.com/i...vid=DL|NHL|home

 

The National Hockey League and NHL Players' Association have agreed to make wearing visors mandatory for players who enter the League beginning in the 2013-14 season.

The announcement came following a meeting of the League's Competition Committee at the NHL offices here Tuesday.

Current players can decide on their own if they choose to wear a visor. It's the same procedure the League used when implementing mandatory helmet usage in 1980.

Crosby was whining and crying after the game and took a shot at Rask as he was skating to the bench.

 

Remember when Crosby lost and threw a tantrum on Zetterberg and Howard had to make a glove save on whiner Crosby's face?

 

 

 

Crosby is one hell of a sore loser!

 




#2416404 Wings-Hawks Gm 7 highest rated hockey game ever on NBCS

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 30 May 2013 - 09:41 PM

I've got a brother-in-law in Seattle who isn't a hockey fan, but he really enjoyed watching the Hawks and the Wings.

 

Wings moving to the east might be bad for ratings, but it will really help Wings fans that can't stay up for 10:30pm games.

 

The west wouldn't have been so bad if they could start the games at 9:00PM ET.  Maybe even compromise with the west coast by starting games hosted in Detroit at 8:30PM, which would be 5:30 their time.

 

However, I'm more than happy to move to the east.  I think the rivalries with Toronto and Boston are going to be awesome. 

 

 

NBC commentators released their proposed new division names:

 

Division A:  Crosby Division

Division B:  Crosby Division

Division C:  Crosby Division

Division D:  Crosby Division

Franzen was amazed at Zetterberg's spinning in the corner trying to create room.

 

Yeah, Franzen said, "Oh, so that's what trying looks like!?"

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 29 May 2013 - 09:28 PM

I'm in DC chaperoning our scholastic team for tge national championships. Just got into the hotel. No game on TV, the restaurant we just got back from had no TV or wifi. What's the short version so far?

 

Wings played like shizzle for two periods, and showed up in the third.

 

Refs have been blah.  Refs gave another phantom hooking penalty to Big E.

 

Wings with good momentum streaks in the third.

 

 

The edge of my seat is occupied.

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 29 May 2013 - 09:27 PM

how the hell can the hawks cover the puck like that and not get a delay of game??? isnt the new rule that you can't even close your hand on the puck??

 

Where we're going, we don't need rules.
