Second, when D'Ago was late coming off, he tried to spin it like he still wasn't out until the guy skated by him.

It's all hype. They've got a story, they're pointing out every little thing to make it seem like he is a problem.

Last night, his penalties were bad, but they didn't cost the game. Ryan Miller, inconsistent effort, a mediocre night from many key players, and a Komisarek brain cramp cost us the game.
I'm not watching CBC/TSN... and I watch most games in bars so I don't really listen to the commentators.
