They definitely should play Smith there.

If a leaf grazes a tree in the forest and no ref is there to see the dive will they still call the penalty?
 
Yes. 
 
Age old riddle resolved.


But... there are no leafs in the playoffs. ;)

NBC has great love for the Nutcracker and all things Boston Goon related.  I take back what I said earlier about out-smarting and out-playing them. The Wings are going to have to figure out how to out-goon them, somehow.


You mean bring back Dmitri Mironov to take slappers at their chests and Marian Hossa to give them the Berard treatment? I don't think it's necessary.

Everybody should have expected the Bruins to come out hard today, and their shenanigans shouldn't have surprised anyone.

Howard's giveaway just set the tone for the B's to dominate, and the quick second goal after a complete defensive breakdown just added fuel to their fire. The fourth goal was also weak, IMHO. Howard still made some great saves, but they lost this game in the first. The anemic PP compounded the issue.

Nobody should have expected the Wings to cone out of Boston up 2-0. Few people beforehand would have given them a shot at the split. If the PP actually converts in the 1st or 2nd it's a completely different game. I'll take the split.

Regroup and come out for game three focused and ready to play. The Sunday afternoon on NbC malaise has been evident all season. It's a best of 5 now.

They call a rough on Quincey, but that was nothing compared to stuff the Bruins have done all game.

Weak goal. Howard should have had that.

Put Smith on the PP with Kronwall.

Keep this pressure. Rask is ready to give up a couple.

Pp needs to get going here, at this point it's been just deflating.


Isn't there medication for that? ;)

Nik starting to hit. Edzo wanting an interference call after he stood up Bergeron. Datsyuk owning Marchand.

Good on Smith for standing up to Hodor. I'd laugh if Chara ran him and Smith ducked out like Yzerman did Pronger years ago.

Franzen did hit the guy from behind, but nothing the Bruins didn't do ten time during the period, LOL at Edzo's double standard.

As far as wishing paralysis, that's a bit harsh, though I completely understand the sentiment.

Good to see Abdelkader stand someone up.

Smith back on the bench, good to see.

Is this commentary as slanted as I think it is or am I biased?


It's Edzo, of course it's slanted. The Bruins have carried the play and you can tell he needs some paper towels already.


Still time to get back into it, but the dirty hits are getting old. If the guys manage to get the next goal, it's a completely different game.

Smith to the dressing room after the blindside hit by Krejci.

Pathetic change led to that. Sheahan sent it past Smith, and Howie's clear attempt was reminiscent of Osgood in 93 against SJ.

Regroup and tie it up guys.

Tatar with some non-subtle interference. Better than letting Hodor crash into Jimmy. Stand tall on the PK boys!
