Huge point last night!
Would liked to have seen Hall take the puck out of the zone and regroup in OT instead of trying to force the issue which led to the turnover and Cindy's game winning goal.

Spot-on analysis Todd - as always!

It's a shame that Hall's only bad mistake came in OT. He tried too hard.

Todd, just wondering what the definitions of "chances" and attempts were. Are chances just possessions in the offensive zone and attempts just shots at net (blocked+missed+saved)?

Thanks,

Joe

I still hate Hitler more then Crosby but the gap has narrowed...

Unrelated, but can we get Scott Stevens back now? WTF is our defense doing? Does Nesreddine coach them to play so soft?

Also, worst breakout of the year by Mirco Mueller... two open forwards and instead of hitting them with a pass he holds onto to puck to skate is short of the redline to ice it to nobody. Not even close to anybody. Ann Landers is more offensive then this guy.

Not that it's such a big deal. Just saying.

Anyone gonna talk about crosbys dive in face off circle. Thats what that scrum was about with Zajac. He called Crybaby on his dive. NHL is such a joke. Why wasnt that reviewed and given a penalty.

I don't know if it was a dive. He did jab the butt end of the stick into him. There really isn't a lot of padding, and he probably got him on the bone.

It was a delayed reaction. And this IS 87 we talking about.

re: Mueller's icing, it looked like maybe the forward curled to the middle and Mirco threw it to the boards thinking he was going to curl that way. Either that or it was just a panic move dumping it like that. Either way outside of that play he looked decent again last night.

That play looked like it could be featured in one of those sniper video where guys fall for no reason or take a dive and they edit in the Saving Private Ryan sniper shooting them.

lol yes it is Crosby, but I don't think that this is one of those times. That legit hurts getting the butt end of the stick there. There is 0 meat, and no padding there. Did he embellish, maybe, but it definitely hurts.

Attempts are attempts from anywhere. Chances are in the slot area. High-danger chances are right in the middle of the slot or around the paint.

I played hockey over 20 yrs, that type of butt end stick doesn't make you hit the ice. It was an Avery-like-swan-dive. I cant believe that POS hasn't grown up.

Doesnt matter anyway, but come playoffs I hope we get the PENS.

I’m hoping he’ll be a good defender. And I’ll take a shut down guy with no offensive skill no matter how out d style they are....but he’s making Dano and Colin White look like puck moving pros. I will say he has shown some decent passing once he figures out what he’s trying to do.

yeah, he made a bad play last night. It's part of young players learning. His passing has been fine, stop exaggerating so much about it.

Played over 20 years? Ok then.

I was going to say something smart like it was a butt end into a tender part of the underarm/rib, not a Richard to the mouth like you're used to. But I won't because you clearly 'hockey'.

Mueller is very young. Much to learn. Better option than LOVEJOY.

Cory probably starts vs ISLES.Look for a shutout or 4 . or does he get Montreal??

Maroon a great PU
Grabner bot so much. Do we stick Zajc line on Barzal or Tavares.
I dont think he can keep up with BARZAL .

does MOJO play?? maybe vs Montreal.

All parts of Crosby are tender. His vagina extends from the crown of his head to the very bottom of his feet. The man is basically one giant vagina.
