It seems like every time I am trying to catch up in the around the NHL thread, it gets closed
Regarding the Landeskog play, Mike Rupp made an interesting comment on NHL on the Fly last night which I had never heard before.
He said that Landeskog was on the ice forever and it went beyond a “laziness” thing. He said that the benches in San Jose are extremely small (even with the backup goalie in a separate location) and that leads to guys having a hard time getting off the ice. I assume that he’s speaking from personal experience?
Maybe.. but man get out of the zone...... Landeskog made two really bad decision.... that one that overule a tying goal, and he was lazy on the almost wrap around goal losing his man and screening the goaltender. Was definitely not impress with that player in last nite game.
Now it slooooooooooooooows way down. First and second rounds usually means there is a hockey game on at night.
And he scored the OT GWG in Game 6 to get the Avs to Game 7. The ups and downs of hockey.
They play at the bench probably happens 5/6 times a game, it was just bad timing. Landeskog is not a normally a player I would consider “lazy”, which is why I was wondering if there was another reason he was standing there for so long.
I'd put some blame on the bench to be honest.
Nobody opened the door for him. Looked like he had to do it himself. The bench could've yelled to him to jump off rather than using the door. In theory, if he swung his left leg wider across the blueline to put him onside, would that have been fine even though he was the 6th guy on the ice?
I haven't seen this play yet, but from what they were saying on NHL Radio this morning and what I've read here, it sounds like this is yet another unnecessary controversy created by the need to "get calls right". If they didn't call offside on the ice and they challenged a goal and it was overturned because of what I've read and heard, then that absolutely sucks
“duh da duh. Duh dah duh. Duh da duh.”
Playing in every person’s head after watching any Blues game.
Good for you.
What do folks think about Blues? Seem to have a lot of confidence and a lot of character - I'd almost rather play San Jose if we get through Hurricanes
How many horseshoes do the Sharks have? First they get a bogus 5 minute PP to beat Vegas and now they have a goal against reversed because of a lazy line change. In both examples, the loss is ultimately on the Vegas and Colorado but damn. In the words of Napoleon Dynamite, "Luckyyyy"
Don't think it'll make you any less scared, TP, haha
I like the Bruins against either of the two teams that are left. Leafs and Columbus bothered me more than either the Blues or Sharks do.
while both the Sharks and Blues have a few fast and skilled players, I`m with you, both of them play a style that I feel the B`s are far more comfortable playing and we all know either of them will arrive at the SCF with an absolute ton of battle scars, think eventually the Caps won out last year as they finished the series with less "miles" on them for lack of a better term
Not anticipating the B`s/Canes series to be terribly physical, we`ll see a few good pops by both teams from time to time but won`t be nearly the same
I really think we have a BIG advantage with Rask relative to all other remaining goalies. Yes, Jones/Binnington have been solid but I dont see them as same level as Rask.
seen Billington look a bit shaken maybe once, Jones has let in so many horrific goals this playoff although he played well when it counted last night
There have been a lot of goals disallowed since they implemented the review rule so I don't think them reversing the call on the ice as a goal should be much of an issue. He took way too much time getting off the ice and owned up to it.
Yeah, I did see the video and it looked like he did take his time getting off and he did own up to it. And he also owned up to giving up a turnover too. I just hate the tickytack era with replays we're in now. That said, I don't blame the Sharks for calling for a review either because that's within the rules
Let’s get through the Canes first before talking about who we’d rather play. I hope Bruins players aren’t looking ahead like it seems people around here are.
Still need 4 more wins. The Canes are interesting. The have some perimeter forwards and then they have gritty down low players. A good blend. Need to stay in the passing/shooting lanes. I think our bottom 6 can do some damage.
Every game no matter the round I’m nervous.
Going to be interesting to see how the Blues and Sharks series plays out. Both teams have depth. My West Coast team has always been the Blues. I think the Sharks have had SOME help getting to the conference finals.
The working officials for round 3 will be Francis Charron, Gord Dwyer, Marc Joannette, Wes McCauley, Dan O’Rourke, Chris Rooney, Korazi and Sutherland, as reported by Scouting the Refs.
Tim Peel, Brian Pochmara, Kevin Pollock, Francois St. Laurent, who have worked during the second round, aren’t coming back for the rest of the championship run.
Derek Amell, Devin Berg, Scott Cherrey, Greg Devorski, Trent Knorr, Matt MacPherson, Jonny Murray, Pierre Racicot will be the working linesmen
while Michel Cormier, Ryan Gibbons, Brian Murphy, Mark Shewchyk are done for the year.
Berg and Knorr are making their first trips to the Conference Finals.
