Fitting that the two mediocre teams fueled by PDO would crumble at the same time

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Man this round is hilarious. Would be incredible if the one series to go 7 was Ducks-Flames.

Had to go look at the Habs boards on HF this morning while I drank my coffee. I think it rejuvenated me. Talk of boycotting game 4, 4 more years of the coach, trade everyone, Bergervin who was a genius GM 2 months ago is now an awful GM.

Man it's good to be alive in 2015.

Also gotta say full marks to this caps team. They busted up the Bruins all year, and now they're laying wood to everyone else. I wouldn't want to play them now even if I was a Western team. And I think Caps-Bolts will be really good.

Oh snap it's a b2b? Interesting. Wonder if that's better after a crushing loss like last night, or worse?

My dream final is Ducks vs Lightning, and then watching the ducks get demolished and swept in the finals.

if you take the games since the trade deadline, which may be more predictive of playoff success, it's a different picture. 5v5 score adjusted, from 3/2 to 4/12:

Stat Bolts Capitals Ducks Hawks Rags
Shots For % 9th 12th 6th 14th 13th
Fenwick For % 14th 7th 3rd 12th 18th
Corsi For % 14th 8th 4th 10th 21st
PDO 8th 16th 19th 7th 6th

of course, that's the hawks minus kane.

Every playoff year has someone come back to win when being left for dead, and the Rangers/Caps series is the most likely to produce that this year

With that said, at this point in time, The Rangers look dead and it is tough to believe.

One game can change a lot though.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Rangers are playing with no urgency or energy. It's like they think the purpose is to get points for ****ing up scoring chances and get 0 goals. Don't know why they are so apathetic.

Still, LOL HABS

um, no
awful play by Markov more than anything
i assume he panicked thinking there was less time left than there was based on how he played it



hey it's a 2v3 with 5.5 seconds left, no big deal right?



Subban follows Palat when he cuts inside, Markov has Johnson



the guy on the left is kinda open, but the angle is bad, so no need to panic
Subban can probably get there to cut him off and prevent a great scoring chance
trust in Price to make a bad angled save if it comes to that



as you can see Subban does force him wide into a non-scoring area basically
Markov goes down to block the shot more than cut off the passing lane, which is terribad (again he probably felt like the clock was about to run out at any second and he was just trying to delay, still awful though)



guy goes around Markov to make the pass, he maybe could have made it before too
Subban is a split-second too late to stop Johnson, gg

cliffs: Markov is like 1000% more at fault than Subban imo, he panicked and made a bunch of mistakes

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

ehhhhh I'm not sure

First off, some blame goes to the forwards. Plek was very very late getting back, so Pacioretty shouldn't have overpursued #18. That's one of the reasons why there was so much open space on the left.

Also, there was some miscommunication between markov and subban, and both were kinda caught in no man's land. Markov probably went down to block the shot because he thought Subban was circling back to cover Johnson behind him.

But yeah, it's pretty clear that Markov thought there was ~1second less on the clock than it really was.

Bourne partially blames Pacioretty.

Probably still Markov's fault.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

you can also see miscommunication is frame 1 where Pacioretty is telling Markov to take the wide guy, which would have solved a lot of problems. he doesn't need to be sorta doubling up Palat in the beginning, just gets him out of position. pretty awful for Markov to have vacated the right side of the ice, considering that's where all the Tampa players were, while Gallagher was stuck on the left and Plek was caught deep.

and Markov trying to block the shot there is awful. play it like a 2v1 and take away the passing lane? fine. lay down in front of Price and accomplish nothing? terrible. i would have mostly stayed on the inside of Johnson if i were him, you can see that Subban is going to cut off the angle and give Price something he should save basically always.

i can see blaming Pacioretty, but i never really expect forwards to make good defensive plays, especially wingers. and Pacioretty is probably one of the better 2-way wingers sadly. Markov should know better than what he did here. at the back you can see everything, your job is read and react correctly.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

i played D, i was mostly a defensive D, and my theory always was to trust my goalie. trust him to make a bad angle save like they could have given up there. yes Hedman is a talented player, but a left hand shot coming down the left side, he doesn't have much to shoot at if anything. do not give up a pass back across the net for a tap in. never.

if the goalie can trust you to not allow that, and you trust him to make bad angled saves, you'll come out on top more often than not.

so yeah Pacioretty didn't make the greatest play, but there's a lot of miscommunication and bad reads from the D. now that i look at it again:



Subban should probably be reading that Pacioretty is cutting off Palat, and that Hedman is open, and going over there (or to Johnson so Markov can take Hedman) faster to save Markov from making a terrible play.

but that's hockey at this level, it's almost never 1 mistake or breakdown that causes a goal, usually 3, 4, 5, maybe more.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

or yeah, like you said Shimmy with Markov to Hedman and Subban to Johnson.

in any case, it's a pretty inexcusable lack of communication and chemistry for 3 guys (Markov & Subban especially) who've played together for a while. the D in particular should have faced situations like that a million times and known exactly how they wanted to play it, rather than breaking down at the worst time.
