The hit had a lot of grey area. There was contact between the two players before they reached the boards, but Regehr definitely didn't lay off when he saw that D'Agostini was in a bad position to take the hit.
- rds is getting worse and worse every game - blaming kovalev for a turnover when he's hooked, putting that joker between the benches at ice level...
- carbo is a moron for not playing laraque against a dirty western team, remember last game vs. calgary?
- lang still at the pp instead of andrei, why?
- halak making huge saves
- our D is letting calgary forwards poke around in the crease too often
- kovalev will score tonight
- dagostini is lucky to walk on his own feet after that hit from behind - I was expecting a major for boarding
If it were a habs player who gave that hit, it would be on the main board. People bit** like crazy with Kostopoulos even though Van Ryn put himself in that position, but because it happens to a hab player, it's just the Calgary d-man playing hockey, it's such bull ****
And what's up with the Flames and obstruction, I counted at least 4 potential obstruction calls, plus the Koivu trip.
Both guys were a bit at fault there, D'agostini put himself in a really bad position going into the boards with a physical d-man like Regehr, which contributed to the result, but Regehr definitely gave him a pretty good shove there. Can't disagree with the two minutes.
Can people really look at the play and then try to have somewhat of a analysis that makes sense?
There was a check close to the circles when both men played the body and when Regehr succeeded in having the best of it sending D'Ago off control.....so far nothing wrong....but then he checked him from behind when D'Ago was still not in control from the initial check.....Check from behind clearly.
