I've had multiple people make comments about the Ovechkin hit from this week, I think? Something about him getting hit and slamming into the net? I couldn't find any reference to it but had several people ask me what I thought. Anyone know what I am talking about?
It's a new rule which is why it seems like they don't call it. They have. I've seen it called 4-5x at least during games I've watched.
Having said that, I'm not sure Pavs touched it with his hand, and if he did, his hand was still on the stick so it's not like he closed his hand on the puck. They showed a replay of it, from the camera that was facing Pavs on ice level. Puck was behind his gloves/stick, but I didn't see if he touched it or where it went.
What I don't get is, they allow hand passes in the defensive zone, but you can't do it off the faceoff? If you're in the d zone, it's a hand pass, nothing more. If you're not in your zone...then it's a hand pass and they call it down. Why assess a penalty? I don't remember which zone they were in, but that's irrelevant, it shouldn't be a penalty.
I didn't see the game, but I had the same thought. The Wings lost because they didn't score. Even if the officiating was poor, LA only scored 2 goals which means we had the chance tp at least get to overtime. 1 goal almost never wins a game.
You really had to watch this game to appreciate the officiating. I was laughing hysterically by the end of the game.
Strange that White is scratched...team was playing good last couple. Glad that Smith is in, but Quincey-Garbage should be the one scratched. I do agree on keeping Lashoff in though. I would even prefer Kindl over Quincey crappy ass. I think my gramma can play better than him... You guys will see him screw everything up tonight on D and Frazickle-Cell will drag down the O....oh Babs, why change things when you are flying high?
Huskins has been better than both Kindl and Q....again, time to question Babs.
Is it a requirement for you to throw a jab at Franzen in every, single, one of your posts? We all understand how you feel about Franzen, but it's getting tiresome reading the same line regurgitated by you every post. He's lazy but scores goals and has the best cap hit on our team. Give it a rest for a while will ya?
