Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

double-minor for blood on a high stick is a very underrated terrible rule

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

it's the application of the rule mostly

Quote:
Double-minor Penalty - When a player carries or holds any part of his stick above the shoulders of the opponent so that injury results, the Referee shall assess a double-minor penalty for all contact that causes an injury, whether accidental or careless, in the opinion of the Referee.
if they used any kind of discretion and treated plays like that one as just a minor they'd be way better off
save the double for when a real injury occurs (guy split wide open, teeth knocked out, etc)

but the league hates trusting the refs to use their discretion and make judgments

It was hard to tell from the replays they showed. May have been an elite dive.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Hawks not getting some absurd break to tie it has to be the most shocking thing out of this game

Rangers need to bring it tonight. I expect that they will. I think they know there is no coming back from 3-1 against this team.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

I'd like to give Q the benefit of the doubt because he has won several Cups and I am just a shmuck who just really really likes hockey. But what in the name of Lord Stanley was he thinking with those line changes last night? The Kruger-Shaw-Desjardins line was playing well so he decides to blow it up, bench Teuvo and Vermette and put in Versteeg and Nordstrom who haven't played in a month. Versteeg said "the first two shifts it was like I was standing in a speedway". Great, just f-ing great. And Nordstrom was out of position on the game winner. Perfect.

So I've come to the conclusion that either....

a) Teuvo and Vermette are hurt and Coach Q is covering for them

b) Coach Q has money on the Ducks

c) I know more about hockey than The Stache

Which is more likely?

The new HNIC montage announcer over these comic book filters is absolutely cringe worthy.

It's a sad state of affairs that our nation's love has come to this.

Agree 100%

(But if Rags lose I'll be back spouting the "1 shift, 1 period, 1 game" nonsense )
