Just got done watching the game. Damn. Great game by the boys. Now if they could do that against teams that don't totally suck.
in re: the penalty shot.
I had no idea that a guy with the puck who is draped by one defender with another within a stride or two (considering Richie a defender in that situation) is considered to be on a breakaway. Good to know.
in re: the conundrum at the end.
What Briere did was pretty dirty, and I wouldn't be surprised to see 2-5 games for him (probably more like 2). But honestly, I was standing and cheering (in my living room). Nielsen basically called him a ***** at the faceoff dot, and challenged him (being about 2X as big as Briere). Then, Chris Pronger justified my love for the man when he not only said to DP, "Fine. You wanna go with someone? Go.", and then practically escorted him towards Carcillo. That had me laughing for a good 5 minutes.
Good Hockey night for me. Flyers win 6-1. Winterhawks win 6-1. Isles Prospect Nino Niedersomething gets his first goal in his second game since coming back. **** yeah!!
edit: In my mind Bob got a shutout tonight since that penalty shot was total shyte.
edit #2: Bob.
