In Topic: 3/22 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

27 March 2015 - 10:41 AM

I've been scouring the web for proof but can't find it, but I am positive that about a decade ago, a Wings afternoon game (I think it was against the Stars) ended in OT, NBC wrapped up the broadcast and went to golf, and then they had to go back to the game because the OT goal was disallowed and OT resumed. Does anyone else remember this happening? Unfortunately I can't recall who scored the disallowed goal.

I think it was during a shootout. Turco threw his stick during Zetterberg's attempt. Initially it was ruled accidental and no goal, but then the refs decided the stick throwing was intentional and gave Hank the goal to tie it up. I think the Wings ended up losing anyway.

I'm surprised they wanted to move to the Barclays Center. That place definitely wasn't built for hockey. It will already be the smallest capacity in the league and there will be more than just a handful of obstructed view seats...

In Topic: How Do You Like Your Equipment?

14 September 2014 - 10:04 AM

I worked at Metro Sports from 03-08. Probably have seen some of you guys around. I was never too picky about equipment except for sticks. If a customer was looking for a nice stick and asked my recommendation I would always try to steer them towards a Bauer one piece with the heel curve/open face (I think it was the P91A - Kovalchuk curve then, they may have changed that now). It's always been my favorite curve and I've personally had better luck with durability in Bauer sticks compared to Easton, Warrior, etc. A lot of people didn't seem to interested in the heel curve/open face though, maybe a little too extreme for what they're used to. I think you see it a lot in the NHL. Zetterberg and Franzen use very similar curves to that, as well as many others throughout the league.
