#2155529 Congratulations to the Phoenix Coyotes

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 April 2011 - 12:21 AM

Congrats, Phoenix!

The crowd is STILL giving them a standing O. Very cool.

Not knowing has to be the absolute worst. I hope they find out one way or the other soon.

Howard cannot go a game without letting in three goals. Ridiculous.

What the hell do you want him to do? The first two were redirections off of his own teammates skates. He can't cover every single possibility - no one can. Get off his back already.

Sorry, had to change the title - 200 posts has good juju. You don't mess with playoff juju. :angry:

Yay for the revenue, booo for the announcers.

Rest?

Could be, but I suspect it's more preventative since the Yotes are targeting him - no reason to have him out there, really.

Helm hurt Jovo that bad?

Was it an icing? Was that the reason for the penalty?

I still don't understand the call.

I should just probably leave it and enjoy the game.

Jovo's not hurt - he's embarrassed. I wouldn't come back out either.

It does indeed stand for short-handed goals, but as there are no shootouts in the playoffs, it wouldn't matter. :P

Welcome to the club, Vladimir316! O6, baby. :)

Thanks all for potentially donating to this very worthy cause and for hopefully lighting a fire under the Wings and Rangers.

Yes, the money we donate will go to Children's Hospital in the name of LetsGoWings.com.
Everyone will PayPal me their donation when it is not possible to donate any more money under the terms of your pledge. I will donate one lump sum to Children's Hospital.

One-time payment once we have a total. :) I chose to pledge per series - you can pledge per game, per win, whatever floats your boat, but the Wings have to take the series for Children's Hospital to get the money.

Luck? Yes. A few calls? Sure. Problem is the whole hockey world has seen entire games called solely for the benefit of Chicago; you can't claim this is sour grapes - fan bases who don't give a rats ass about Chicago are talking about it. Personally I would be embarrassed if the only way the Wings made it to the playoffs the last 20 years was with a healthy leg-up from the officials.
Enjoy it while you can.

We had so much fun with this during the Columbus games, I thought we'd do a playoff version. This time we're going to do it a little differently; you pledge whatever amount you like (per game, per series, whatever) - if the Wings win, you pony up. If the Wings lose, so does Children's Hospital. We will do this for every playoff series this post-season the Wings are involved in.
I decided to pledge $20 for the series win, plus another $1 for every multi-goal game Franzen has. This will be my standard pledge for each series.
Anyone else in?

I picked the wrong game to quit sniffing glue!

Okay, we've established the Wings aren't going to get any calls - it's up to them to play around the refs. It helps that we're out-hitting them and doing it legally. Wings just need to play their game. *deep breath*

That's just aggressive forechecking, right?
