The Day After Torts Benched Dubinsky and Higgins
 
Quote:

"I thought Higgy gave us some good shifts, but he’s not doing enough right now. I’m not trying to turn this into a bigger story than it should be, but the player needs to do more. Will he get a chance to show more offensively. I think he will. It’s not trying to embarrass him at all."

"One of the most frustrating things…I think we beat ourselves. Dubi turns the puck over, then Vinny Prospal takes a bad, selfish penalty, and along with some missed coverages, that cost us the game…I thought it was a huge mistake by Dubi, we spent two days talking about those things. The stubborness in that type of play changed the momentum of the game
."

Asked if Tortorella explained why he iced him, Dubinsky said, "Nope…I think it was pretty obvious what happened. Sometimes you make mistakes and you’ve got to pay the consequences…I certainly know what I did and what happened to me and you certainly can’t make those mistakes. It was a big turning point in the game and I’ve got to take care of the puck and be strong on it."

Dubinsky said "the same play happened in the first but it wasn’t on the power play; I made the same move and made a pretty good play out of it. What would I do if I could make a change? Obviously, dump the puck in. I’ve been playing hockey for 20 years and been benched plenty of times for stupid plays. I feel like I’m a pro, and I’m not gonna dwell on it or pout about it, just come back and not make those mistakes."

Lundqvist practiced but his foot was taped tigher than usual. Zipay thinks he'll play on Monday

Lifetime? Per year? Month? Day?

Dubi sounds like he's handling it well. I like the maturity he's showing. Hopefully he learns from this.

I wouldn't pay 20 cents for a lifetime membership... But I do get it.

I don't pay for factual information that I can obtain for free elsewhere -- i.e. Andrew Gross.

Don't get me wrong, I love Zipay and he's my #2 when it comes to getting inside info (Gross is my #1), but it's not worth paying for especially if Gross is free lol.

And even if Gross's company starts charging, there are so many bloggers out there I'll be fine.
