#2519066 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by rrasco on 03 May 2014 - 01:26 PM

Bruins diving all over the place trying to get calls too.  I didn't watch most of game 1 and missed the first today, but I have not seen MTL diving yet.  I love how Boston is starting to get rattled.  If they lose both at home they might be in for a world of hurt.

 

It's funny how Pierre has this love affair with pointing out when a player is holding a Bruin's stick.  He did it a little while ago and he did it last series with Z, the only problem being that they are only holding the stick because the Bruin player is waving it around dangerously.

wonder if the canucks will pursue Blashill???

 

He best stay in GR like he said he was going to do.  We need him there and to be around when Babs leaves.




#2517645 4th Annual Playoff Money On The Board!

Posted by rrasco on 27 April 2014 - 02:19 PM

Only ended up at $12, but throwing in an additional $5 per dats goal and what the heck $3 for z for a $30 total.

 

What a depressing finish :/

Most people are, so it's best to just ignore it, since it's not going away anytime soon. 

 

It's gonna be a long summer.

#2512895 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

I'm all about standing up for yourself, but even I think fighting Chara would be dumb. Smith would have been tossed around like a rag doll much like Chara did with Exelby. Only way forward is to score on the PP and use that team speed to create chances from the rush and from turnovers.

 

Just get the first hit in, and make it count.  I'm sure he could have gone for the sack too, it would have only cost $5000.  At that, he could have just claimed that was eye level.

On the Smith/Chara thing.  People keep saying it would have been dumb to fight Chara, which it would have been, BUT....I've done plenty of dumb things in my life to prove a point.  I'm about half Smith's size but I would have fought Chara to show them we were not backing down.  It's a statement.  Chara might be big, but that doesn't make him great at fighting.  Plenty of big guys have been dropped by smaller guys.

 

If Chara was so confident he would have dropped his stick a lot sooner and left it there for more than half a second.

Chara is a punk.  If he did anything, Brendan should have ripped that C off his sweater.  Props to the kid for standing up for himself.  Sad he's the one that is having to do it after being run for 2 games straight.  Reminds me of that play earlier this year where he got run and had to get up and go after the guy himself, then he got a cross check and the other guy got a dive.  Can't remember who it was off hand.

 

Bruins played the harder game today, but it makes me sick to see them running around at our guys, charging guys from across the ice and getting their elbows up on almost every hit...and getting away with it.  Then to have to listen to Olzcyk defend it.

Like someone on HF said, you could literally photoshop Abby pulling a piano on that play.




#2511645 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Posted by rrasco on 19 April 2014 - 09:36 PM

Stick to the nuts is old news.  No penalty.  No fine.  No suspension.  Let's get real... this is teh PLAYOFFS!   /sarcasm.

 

In other news: 

 

Dear Pittsburgh Fans,

 

Just because your players fall down when hit by an opposing Blue Jacket player does not mean that you should boo if there is no penalty called.

Hitting is still (partially) legal in Ye Olde NHL.

 

Yours Truly,

 

e.

 

It's funny, all six of the Coyotes fans do this too.
