Red Wings 1- Luck 2
at least it's not just us?
Red Wings 1- Luck 2
Mickey tells it like it is.
I am surprised Bettman hasn't tried to censor him, he rips on the refs every game. You are right though, he will call out whoever regardless of their team.
Why let a hockey game have any flow? I love the game being stopped every 2 minutes to get the PP/PK teams on the ice
who else thinks Mick will curse on air sometime in the third period when we get boned on another call....
I think he will choke Bettman out and tell him to fix the refs
If this is how these games are going to go I may need to start drinking a little earlier.
That PP sucked
I know he's a fan favorite. But Holmstrom is worthless.
I think it is time for him to retire after the playoffs are over, we have too many young guys in the AHL that are far better than Homer. I feel bad saying that but Homer needs to go.
I think he needs to stay if it helps convince Lidstrom to stay. They are a big part of each others routine and pregame, I'd hate to give Lidstrom any more incentive to leave than he'll already have.
Lidstrom needs to stay just to groom Smith, Kindl, and Ericson another season. Plus i don't see Stuart staying in Detroit with his family situation.
They need to step up and show they're better and make Homer a healthy scratch.
Man Kyle Quincey sucks way more
We're playing much better this period. Just an amazingly flukey goal keep the Preds out front.
The fans for teams like Nashville piss me off. They've got no Stanley Cups, no Conference Championships, not even a freaking Division Title, yet they get a somewhat good team and suddenly they think their shit don't stink.
They aren't as bad as Ohio "hockey fans" who came out of nowhere when they were winning this past season and the second they started dropping, "We have a hockey team?"
No one is a bad as a TSIO fan
gives me heart problems.
With all the shit they've called on us, how does Weber get away with that?
Lets get another
Let's tie this puppy up here on the PP!!
It's about time they called a penalty.
Power play to start the next period (pending nothing happening in the next 5 seconds). I'm good with that.
Oops, Let's go Red Wings!
We can has PPG to start the next period?
Flyers come back from 3-0 to tie it up!
melrose picked the pens to win the cup, so they are undoubtedly doomed.
From the level of play tonight, I've changed my mind from Nash in 6 to Detroit in 6. They have hardly had any offensive pressure in front of their vaunted loud home crowd. Two flukes have them up by 1.
We got this, Wing Nuts!
This is what I have been thinking during this nonsense they're calling a hockey game.
Let's keep those numbers up and we'll win this one.
Damn, thought we had one there!
GODDAMNIT ZETTERBERG! HOW DID YOU MISS THAT!?!?!?!?!?!
how did that not go in!!!!
How does that puck not go in???
Red wings versus Luck part II
Well we didn't score on that, but we had some quality chances and we're still controlling the flow of this game
Insane save by Rinne...hockey gods aren't helping the right team so far.
So the next time we play them is Friday the 13th? Awesome.
LOL, "This is Gongshow," - Mickey
Why is that a double penalty?
Because apparently the NHL imported the CCHA refs to do this game
I've never seen a red call a penalty and a dive at the same time
You would think it would be one or the other. Not both! I guess that's why we don't get paid to referee?
A player "milking" or "diving" has nothing to do with whether the original play was legal or not. If the original play wasn't legal, he should be penalized, if a player dives, he should also be penalized. The two events aren't connected in the eyes of the offical/rulebook.
but not something you see often. These guys are obviously way higher level than me, but I think they made a defensible call there.
The point of the diving penalty is to not allow a team to benefit from a dive, and it cost us the powerplay there: it did what it was written to do.
Barry Trotz looks like a villian from a James Bond or Austin Powers movie.
