    I have no idea how you do that if you have even the slightest sense of where you are on the ice. The announcer said he was trying to clear it, but I would think if he wanted to do that (he didn't need to), he would have fired it into the corner.

    Yeah, there's no reason to clear, he easily could've corralled it and start skating it out or move to the half boards and wait for an outlet.

    That's just typical North American PC announcing, can't say anything bad about anyone. Would love to hear an English soccer color guy rip him to shreds.

    Watched some of Stars/Flyers on Saturday. 9 in a row now for Philly. The Metro is ridiculous. Bout time some of the power swings East. As :airquotes: bad as the Hawks have looked all year, there's only a couple teams in the West that post any real threat.

    Yeah, STL is definitely the other contender in the West. I think Edmonton is still a year away from being a true threat. If Dubnyk continues to be a wall, then the Wild are surely in the mix. Of course, when Quick returns he will make LA an instant threat as well...

    I keep thinking at some point Nashville will start to be a thing, but maybe not.

    Columbus has been damn good.

    Bobrovsky is having himself a year and Tortorella has them playing! Let's see if it is sustainable

    Another great game against the NYR. Hawks prevail tonight. I would love to see this matchup in the SCF.

    Oops, wrong planet.

    Anyway, STL blows a 3-0 while getting smoked by the Preds 6-3 :laff:
    Vancouver likewise led 5-2 and lose 8-6

    Yeah, that is some BS on clearing it. Look at this goal, he raises his stick the same way after scoring.

    Same shit he did against the Oilers. No doubt he thought it was a good goal and then quickly realized he fucked up.

    I think maybe he was responding to post #30 and didn't realize there were another 35 posts after that.

    I do that sometimes in threads I have not viewed in awhile and I think I am responding to the most recent post when it actually is just the last post on that page I was viewing.

    How the hell does Columbus have 5 games in hand on the Rangers & Flyers and 4 on the Pens? They could jump to 1st pretty quickly when they catch up if they keep their pace.

    Yeah, it has been like that for awhile. The Caps also have games in hand. I wonder if they had their bye week early or something?

    BeviBall No wallet. No crack. Not me.

    Turn on game and Caps are up 3-0. 8 minutes later it's 5-3 Pens.

    It's now 6-5 Pens 3 minutes later. :crazy:

    WSH is just in their own universe right now. So far in 2017, they are 17-2-1. In 14 of those games (70%) they have scored at least 5 goals.


    Scary stuff.

    Because it is the Capitals, it will be something awful. Like a first round sweep :laff:

    And then Montreal fires Therrien and hires Julien. You had to figure he would not be on the sidelines for long....

    Like, it never occurred to them if they let the best Francophone coach go, that Montreal would call immediately.

    I'm surprised Toronto didn't go after him. Then again, they owe Babcock so much money...
