Instead Weber manages to kick it back towards the front, it goes off Miller and dribbles in the crease near the goal line. Pommer had fallen so his man was wide open and puts it in.
Thank you for bringing some sanity back to this board. I started to write something similar in the GDT - tired of reading about bad Miller played but deleted it figuring why waste keystrokes?
Just prior to your slo-mo analysis. the entire team went back on their collective heels as Landeskog picked the puck up and started his rush.
It was like "Welcome to our zone Mr. Landeskog. Have enough room to operate Mr. Landeskog? Can we help you make a play Mr. Landeskog? Hey, everyone watch Mr. Landeskog... he's going to be great someday."
So the ping pong play happens as you describe while Pommer doesn't get position on McGinn (?) and the puck is tapped into the open net behind Miller.... who made two saves on the play.
Anyone check the SOG's at the end of the game?
