LOL Blues, you can't knock Dubnyk into the net after he stops the shot.

Great save.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

shooting it right at the goalie is not a great save, pretty tilting when people lose their minds on **** like that

Ummm, is he aware it's GAME 6 of a playoff series?

Apparently yes, because another lol goal 2 mins after the comment and the snap hook.

facepalm

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Don't think Hitchcock looks that dumb, that goal was awful. Would look even dumber if he didn't pull him after a goal like that simply because he made those comments on TV.

This. Dubnyk didn't even react to the shot, the puck hit him in the logo.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Dubnyk was actually drawing super slim on that shot because he was so deep in his net and the lolblues guy still managed to hit him

Starting Allen over Elliott is pretty bad to begin with. Not quite as bad as some of their goaltending decisions of years' past, but still dumb nonetheless.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Just a reminder, the Blues have employed Scotty Bowman, Mike Keenan, Joel Quenneville, and Ken Hitchcock as their head coaches. These guys have won a ****load of RANGZ. The Blues have 0 RANGZ. Despite years of Brett Hull + Brendan Shanahan on their roster.

I mean, the truly dumb part is how he rationalized it. "Nahh, he's a young guy, he's learning, gotta stick with him."

That's basically an open admission that he might not be your best option at goalie at this moment in time. And it's an elimination playoff game.

Would be hilarious to see Hitch put Allen back in.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

I could be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure Minnesota has never won a playoff series at home. Would be cool to see it.
