    playoff game...

    Cross check. Two minutes. However, that is a really bad series of unfortunate events for Pavelski. I didn't want the Sharks to win, but that's a helluva a rally when losing their Captain.
  3. Today
  4. Surprises can happen in the play offs. We went 10-6-1 in the last two months of the season and beat some play off teams during that stretch. By no means would I consider us a title contender had we snuck into the play offs, and it would not have surprised me had we got swept, but upsets do happen in the play offs like both top seeds getting knocked out this year. It's not always how you get to the play offs that matters. What matters is what you do once you get there. If our team hires the right coach and makes the right moves this off season (draft, free agency, trades), I think a return to the play offs next season is a possibility. Though whether that is in the team's best interest rather than committing to a rebuild is debatable. I'm a supporter of trying to stay competitive and make moves to maintain and improve competitiveness, but I can see the flip side that some of our fan base argue that we need to rebuild to replace our ageing core.

    The good refs were working the other game (MacCauley/Sutherland). Who called the penalty? O'Halloran or Furlatt? I see more of an issue with Pavelski losing his balance. Don't remotely see an intent to injure. Not the first time a team gets jobbed by the officials.

    Yep, I was there, down 3-0 with just over 3 minutes to go.....three goals with the goaltender pulled to force overtime. Lots of fans bailed out thinking the game was a done deal.....that was one for the ages, but this one was too. Game 7, and VGK was in complete control....until the major....

    I think paleontologists have found the Cheliosaur in the late Jurassic while anthropoglists have Zdeno as the Bigfoot/Yeti missing link.
  8. In case anyone missed it: I'm sorry but I'm not seeing a 5 minute major plus a game misconduct here. Eakin cross-checked him out of the way after losing a faceoff. This happens in practically every playoff game. Pavelski lost his balance from the shove and ended up in the space Stastny wanted to enter. Unless you want to blame Stastny for skating around a Couture screen and getting his arms up when someone suddenly creates traffic in front of him, this is just incredibly bad luck all around. This is the type of play that looks way worse in slow motion and even then there isn't a clear series changing infraction to be seen here. I don't see how a ref could judge a play like that at full speed without it being 100% focused on the awful outcome. Without Pavelski bumping into Stastny, nothing even happens. Of course when the home team's captain is laying in a pool of blood and fans are littering the ice you want to make a call. I can't agree with this one though. Vegas got screwed. At the same time, dear lord Vegas. Major penalty aside, how do you unravel like that in such a short period of time? Yikes. I wanted the Sharks to lose entirely so I could make snarky remarks about all the Norris candidates getting sent home so early. This is the type of victory you ride to the top though. Think LA coming back from an 0-3 series hole and winning in San Jose type of victory. This is still the Sharks though so it's probably equally as likely for them to get their doors blown off by the Avalanche. Who even knows with these playoffs anymore.
  9. Man leafs fans will go crazy after this one. Isn't that a third game 7 loss against the Bruins in like 5 years? Can't wait till they announce the Marner contract. I want offers sheets!! And I have nothing against Tavares but I do find it kinda funny he's out and the Isles are going through. These Playoffs are sick. It's really anyone's game. No more favorites.
  10. The oilers meltdown was worse but this was a game 7 and was through the roof entertaining. I’m glad that SJ beat the house
  11. LOL Vegas. So glad that happened to them. I’m still salty the NHL changed the expansion draft rules for them. Their fans need some misery before they can win. Miracle on Katella is still better. No team has ever scored 3 goals in the amount of time the Ducks did to tie, and the Ducks didn’t need help from the refs either (sorry Edmonton fans, you’re wrong).
  12. That was a meltdown of ages! Does this comeback rival the ducks against the Oilers? I mean by number of goals when down? Does anyone know?
  13. They got them back for last year!

    In the words of the greatest 8, that was unbelievable!

    Five minute major against VGK. SJS scored four goals. VGK tied it with the goaltender pulled. Welcome to overtime.

    Regarding the penalty, why did the vegas guy get a game misconduct? He cross checked him but it was Stasny that pushed him down to the ice? I don't get it???
  19. That game went from 0 to 100 in an instant. Hands down one of the craziest periods I've ever seen. It's like Alfreddsson shooting the puck at Niedermayer on steroids. I need to see the hit again cause in real time it seemed like they were penalizing the unfortunate result as opposed to the play but still, all the credit to San Jose for rallying aroumf their captain like that. Credit to Vegas for fighting back and forcing overtime. Imagine THIS game going 3+ overtimes just for the hell of it.

    Lol. I turned it off at 3-0 (thinking it was over) to put my kid to bed and take a shower. WTH happened????

    One of the best game sevens I’ve ever watched......

    IMO, Babcock is grossly overrated. When the Detroit talent pool dropped off, Babcock bailed out of Detroit like a rat on a sinking ship.

    I also thought Eakins stick was high. Probably not definitive enough to overturn. Have to give the Sharks credit for taking full advantage of the major penalty power play. If the Sharks hold on, it would be one for the ages. @dtsdlaw

    I'm sorry pavelski got hurt but that didn't look that bad or worthy of a 5 minute major. There is WAY worse stuff happening regularly I hate San Jose.

    playoff game...

    I thought Eakins stick was too high. Between that goal and the one they waved off in game 2 for the bogus goaltender interference penalty on Couture, the refs have had way too much influence on this series for my taste.

    Calls Babs a POS and a fraud. Don’t think I can copy/paste here due to the foul language. Apparently Commodore played for Babs in Detroit and still has some, ahem, issues with him.
