Needless play by Pleks. Nash was headed down to the boards. Now more than enough time for the Blue Jackets to get their PP going for a win (45 seconds or so). If they win a faceoff, even better for them. Brassard is scary already. Going to be one heckuva player. Better than Lats, yes THAT good! Jackets seem to skate well and force turnovers well. Of course, this could be one of their better nights but still, good youth core going.
As much as it sucks.. Pleks has been one of our best forwards tonight..
now if someone gets into trouble, they can commit penalties at will... we can't get any more short handed, right? Like it's not in the rules that they can put a fifth guy on right? as long as it's not delay of game that awards a PS
Nope...if the team that's already down a man takes another penalty, it turns into a 5-on-3...even if it was 4-on-3 when the penalty occured.
Probably, but we're just full of surprises so perhaps we win even if Nash buries one. Our first three shooters are a juicy roster of slick moves. Tangs seems to like shooting first, asking questions later, Koivu has a few crafty dekes that fool the goalies and Lang has used a sweet backhander
Edit: Is it Andrei or Lang? Either way a good choice. God if I were a goalie, I'd HATE the shootout. Too much pressure. Only goalies who really love the competition enjoy the SO as well as those naturally skilled at it. That and Michelin men like Giguere perhaps.
