Posted by derblaueClaus on 27 April 2015 - 04:57 AM

Updated? Or the entire set would be nice.

 

 

I was away over the weekend, hence the delay. Here you go :

#2598461 Knuckles vs Numbers - The death of the enforcer

Posted by derblaueClaus on 23 April 2015 - 09:02 AM

Dang, you beat me to it.  By the way, during the time McGrattan spoke I saw no rats in my apartment. Coincidence ? I think not.

 

All humor aside, it must be pretty hard for those guys. From one day on the other your no longer needed. But if you watch clips like the the Carcillo clip from yesterday, you remember it's a good thing that enforcers are no longer used. In the end even for the enforcers themselves.

I just watched Coopers press conference. He was claiming that the game depended on a lucky bounce we got on the Datsyuk goal and they on the other side didn't get, calling it a "game of inches". If thats the message he is sending into the Bolts locker room good for us, because they will loose the series then. While we certainly had our fair share of luck yesterday, but we also outplayed and outworked them. It sounds like he is a little too sure of his team, let's hope they have to pay for it.

Does anyone have the next one of this or the whole set somewhere?

 

Here it is :

That's kind the problem, his bad games and good games seem to alternate, which he needs to change...
I imagine well run a tandem next year, unless we win the cup with Mrazek, in which case he's the guy.

 

To be fair his last game wasn't bad. There is only a certain number of shots a goalie can save if the defense has a day off.

SpecialTeam effort

Here, FIFY.

 

But honestly, our PK and Mrazek were huge tonight. Let's hope it gets into Tampas heads.

Hard to dislike anything about this game tonight. Except the penaltys of course.

So many chants going on that I can't really hear through all the blabbing on TV.

 

The old barn is sure on fire tonight.

I think I've never seen Babs that angry. And rightfully so. That's a bulls*** call.

Huge kill. HUGE KILL.

How's Petr look? Been tested at all?

 

Great, too and yes he was. He had to save one half-breakaway from Stamkos, one weird deflected shot from the left boards and some shots that were made near enough the crease to be uncomfortable.

That first period was the pre-deadline Wings. Smith and Abby great. What an incredible period. We need two more of those now.

Ok!  We'll at least let you know if anyone loses a yambag.

 

Last time a player (almost) did we won the cup. Might be a good omen.

Stripes don't matter anyway. Either your team is good enough to win or it isn't.




#2596905 Smith in. Marchenko out for Game 3

Posted by derblaueClaus on 20 April 2015 - 04:36 PM

From St.James :

 

http://www.freep.com...speed/26081585/

 

 

Zetterberg estimated Smith "has learned stuff. He is more experienced and I think he played well for us this year.

"Tampa is a high-speed skating team, and when Smith plays, he can really skate with the puck, and he can keep up with their forwards. I think he's a good fit for the series."

 

 

"Stay positive, that' the biggest thing," Smith said, "I was working hard and bag-skating myself, getting Tony to help me out with things that we're working on."

 

As for what he thought of Babcock's message, Smith simply said he wanted "to be ready when my number is called."

 

 

Abdelkader, who missed the first two games for health reasons, said Smith's stay in the doghouse, "was getting at him, but he stayed positive and he worked hard. He's going to provide some physicality for us - he's a big defenseman that takes a body, makes it hard for opponents to get to the front of the net. I think he'll be a big boost. He's raring to go."

 

It's from St.James, but doesn't sound like Smith has attitude problems. That's good, I hope he has a huge game tomorrow.
