Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Two captains taking bad penalties.

Steve Yzerman likely not impressed.

Yeah no matter how hard Z actually pulls him there, you just can't reach that arm out like that. If you're gonna interfere with him gotta go under the body and pull his midsection

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

It's funny, the announcers on SportsNet were raving about the career year that Abdelkader had this season.

Anyone want to take a guess at why Abdelkader had a career year?

Could be because I'm watching on TV, but the Coliseum seems really tame.

Datsyuk was injured most of last year and before that Datsyuk played with Zetterberg and Holmstrom.

Yeah, amazes me the waste of time it is. Feel like stats in hockey are the least important out of any major sport. So either the stats used are not important and really don't say anything, or goaltending is huge and not something you have to worry about in other sports.

I think because of the fluid nature of the game and the relative infrequency with which events happen relative to other sports, it means you just need to make a bigger effort to contextualize the stats.

Arguably should have been a penalty shot.

I've been a very vocal not-fan of Quincey's in the past, but yeah, he's playing pretty well and has been the second half of the season.

T. Johnson being nutmegged instead of tying the game was my second "get up and facepalm" situation of the playoffs
