Stupid play by Shaw, but you're right about Smith's acting. Either way, Shaw earned the penalty.

Shaw earned 2 minutes.

Not a 5 minute PP and getting tossed from the game.

Yeah, I was just asking myself, Where's "Geno" in all of this? Granted, I didn't catch either of the games. But I don't think I've seen him on any of the many highlight reels I've watched.

You'd think all this run 'n' gun action would suit him....

I didn't see the game either but he had two assists (both secondary), 2 shots on goal and was a -4. Also spent 3:38 on the PP.

Not what you'd hope for out of a potential Hart winner.

I can't figure out how to link to the specific highlight on NHL.com, but you guys might enjoy the highlight of the first Flyers goal because of who coughs up the puck for a shortie.

Ericsson had one ill-advised move in front of his net but in general had another solid and physical game, led all defensemen in TOI and played 5:33 on the PK.

Modano on NHL network... Good to see him after long time

Defense wins championships .. No way s***sburg is coming back from this hole

Has anyone been playing defense this series???

I wish these games were on different days than the Wings so I could watch them. Sounds like a fun series, especially with the Pens blowing leads again.

<sigh> Those were the days.

Indeed they were.

The Wings didn't win nearly as much, but man they didn't take crap from anybody.

Loving the Preds fans outraged when Z grabbed Weber like that. It's not like he slammed his head in the glass or anything. Settle down.

The ref 2 feet away doesn't call it. The ref at center ice does.

Nice dive by Bourque.

"Tee hee hee, look what we did last game!"


Unreal.

I wonder if Shanny feels any differently about his decision after seeing this picture.

Someone should tweet it to him if it hasn't been already.

Anyone who has played hockey (like I have for most of my life) and has worn NHL level helmets, knows a helmet shouldn't crack, and in 3 places no less, from something like that.

Again...maybe the visor cracked where it attached to the helmet, which I can see...but not the helmet itself...no way. Sorry. If it did indeed crack, it was probably already weak from previous impacts over the course of the season.

Maybe he just needs to switch helmet brands.


Wow that's going a long way to explain away his helmet cracking.

While I believe you've been wearing a helmet most of your life, from your expert opinion as someone who wears NHL helmets, you can tell that there's no way it cracked in three places? In spite of you having not been at the game. Not having touched or inspected the helmet, or having even gotten a good look at the helmet before or after the headslam. Given that total lack of information, the most logical conclusion to you is obviously Zetterberg's lid was ready to blow at any second from general use over the course of this season, not from him getting his head slammed into the glass.

Makes sense.

I guess if I'm just considering the quality of playoff hockey I want to see, I gotta root against the Sharks. Diving would go down dramatically if they and the Canucks went out in the first round.

Discuss the series without personal attacks please. Even if a post is 90% about the game but you call someone a name, I'm going to delete the whole thing.

so if you don't want your thoughts zapped into the ether, keep it civil. Thanks.

Edi, this one's for you. Put on the tinfoil hat! ;)


NHL unhappy with missed offsides on Flyers goal

TORONTO -- Colin Campbell feels the pain of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The NHL's senior executive vice-president of hockey operations acknowledged Thursday that linesman Tony Sericolo erred in not whistling the play dead prior to Danny Briere's first goal in the opening game of the Penguins-Flyers series.

"There's no other way to explain it but a missed call," Campbell told The Canadian Press in an interview. "We're as upset as Pittsburgh almost. It's a mistake."


Briere scored Philadelphia's first goal on Wednesday night after being sent in on a breakaway by teammate Brayden Schenn. The long pass came immediately after a neutral zone turnover and replays showed that Briere was a couple feet offside.
.
.
"It was a quick turnaround," said Campbell. "You can see it was a quick 70-foot pass -- the linesman was up with the play and then had to move quickly back and he saw it from the angle he saw it from.

"But still his job is to get the right call and he didn't."


But you know Campbell, he's always admitting the league makes all kinds of mistakes and apologizing for things. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the Pens being involved. :blink:

Two of the three games were like this. I think it would be fair if this were analyzed through at least the first two games of each series, or 16 games. Not the first night when only 3 games were played.

I believe you will find games like this to be more of the exception, and not the rule. As I said though, lets get more games in before we pass judgement.

It only took you one post to pass judgment in this thread. Why should you expect others to wait?

Kings win!

And Richards Kronwalls Burrows. Love it!

Brown with the empty netter after Burrows screwed up and had the puck skip over his stick.


Clifford apparently out after the hit to the head. That's too bad. The kid's already had concussion issues.
