Intimidated players do nothing when Asham pushed your goalie right in front of you
Henrik dove on that play, Asham came into him yes, but he tried to sell it. (like you would) He was borderline Hasek on that play. Joe was doing his best to make it more than it was too. Didn't Voros fight Asham?
Rangers were intimidated against the Devils? Ottawa? Those were shutout losses.
I'll give you the Gabby incident but when that started everyone was paired off. Gabby, if I'm not mistaken dropped a glove first. Girardi came over when it was already too late. Guess what - before that Girardi was wrapped up with someone too.
We just played a bad game and couldn't set up in the zone. They clogged the neutral zone good. They had no better chances than us save for Gagne's break. NONE. They lucky on a high change and Pronger's hail mary, and another one went in off our dman. Shots were close - our shutout breaker was spoiled by the buzzer, we had a few close ones but ours didn't go in.
Intimidation is the worse excuse for what happened, or better yet didn't happen, offensively tonight.
Did you see Girardi stand up Richards a couple of times and stay in his face? Did you see Avery flatten Princess Briere? Did you see Boyle mouthin off and swipin at anyone near him tonight? What about Dubi almost going over the penalty box partition? Dubi also threw a couple checks against Carcillo....
Intimidation is the worse excuse I heard for tonight's loss, trying to use that as way to describe the game is terrible.
