The Ref is leading him off at :40 and for some reason he keeps patting Franzen's butt. You can see Franzen get really annoyed at :50. Maybe he just didn't like being led off, but it looks to me like he just doesn't like butt pats as much as BottleofSmoke.
Earlier in the game he took a face-off with that same linesman and gabbed the NHL patch on his shirt. or copped a quick feel.
In any case Franzen cracks me up all the time with his awkwardness. Remember when he grabbed kayne's mouth guard.
TORONTO – After Team Canada defeated Sweden 3-0 to win gold in men’s hockey at the Winter Olympics Sunday, you’d think there would be some hard feelings and nasty words being flung around. Maybe an “In your face!” or “Take that Sweden!” Especially on social media sites like Twitter.
I am Canadian and for the first time, I actually feel bad for the US team.
in 2010 it was easy not to feel bad after hearing the US team placed a Canadian flag in the middle of the dressing room to walk over before going on and coming off the ice. I do not know who came up with that idea but it was not very smart.
4 years later and water under the bridge we meet again. Unlike the round robin game I think the US team played significantly better and deserved this win. But as Don Cherry has said in the past the hockey gods were in Canada's corner. The empty net post to surviving the first minute of OT (how did that puck did not go in?)
So as a typical Canadian, Sorry Eh. See you again in 4 years.
I noticed that too! At first I thought they were going alphabetically back when Canada was tied with Norway for medals. But now it's pretty obvious they're just keeping Canada as #3 regardless of the medal count. Ridiculous. Inferiority complex much? lol
For as long as I know, going back to about Albertville, it Metal Standing goes by golds than tie breaker is silver and than bronze
both Jake and Anthony made the final roster today. somehow Booby Mac had Mantha on the bubble to be cut after he setup the GWG and scored the insurance goal in a 4-2 win over the fins. makes me shake my head. His play today reminded me of mule with speed.
That's a darn good goal, I like that he kept working at it rather than taking a whack at the puck and then circling back toward center ice. Hard work goals aren't usually his bag, but it is cool to see him make it look pretty at the end.
Good work kid!
Fun to watch but not a good goal. Sens have every right to be mad about that. You are not allowed to take a ax chopping motion on a stick as of a couple years ago. He should be sitting for 2 minutes. Like clearing the puck over the glass this should be a automatic call.
Any forceful or powerful chop with the stick on an opponent’s body, the opponent’s stick, or on or near the opponent’s hands that, in the judgment of the Referee, is not an attempt to play the puck, shall be penalized as slashing.
43.1 Checking from Behind – A check from behind is a check delivered on a player who is not aware of the impending hit, therefore unable to protect or defend himself, and contact is made on the back part of the body. When a player intentionally turns his body to create contact with his back, no penalty shall be assessed.
43.2 Minor Penalty - There is no provision for a minor penalty for checking from behind.
43.3 Major Penalty – Any player or goalkeeper who cross-checks, pushes or charges from behind an opponent who is unable to protect or defend himself, shall be assessed a major penalty. This penalty applies anywhere on the playing surface (see 43.5).
I am wondering if this was a reputation call. A lot of calls against Abby have been missed, makes me wonder. I hope this is reviewed by the league. I had to drive home between the 2nd and 3rd and streamed the wings radio feed. They had a pre-taped interview with DMac. He said he thinks that Shanny is harder on the wings because of politics, but he would be the same.
This was the TSN turning point IMO. we fell victim of the broadstreet bullies. the wings slowed down they were constantly looking over there shoulders.
I was at the game last night, Bert looked slow, I have thought he looked good since being o the top line. but he was off tonight. Franzen line was invisible neither good or bad. I thought Miller played really well.
I am attaching a picture I took that Google #autoawesome 'd. this software is amazing. The only thing I did was take rapid pictures during the shoot out.
