I think him and Gerbe where kinda going back and forth and the referee just decided enough was enough.
Ah I was curious about that too. Then I guess he was the one who snapped his stick over the bench and got the game misconduct?
Also, very glad we dressed 7 D so Syvret could play the last 19 seconds of the game.
Looks like Pronger will be back to 20+ minutes next series. Obviously no need to overwork him at all like last year, unless we get Tampa and need to use him for particular matchup.
In other news, I was told tonight that television can still change the schedule depending on matchups, but the belief is Game 1 will be Saturday and Game 2 Monday in Philadelphia. Games 3 and 4 next Wednseday and Friday in either Tampa, Boston or Pittsburgh,and Game 5 back here Mother's Day afternoon.
I was thinking Saturday (afternoon probably) would be the most likely day for game 1. Game 1 last year was that Saturday. Friday night doesn't seem likely (possible sixers game plus it being the 29th when the schedule will likely be decided on the 28th? Too soon, it seems). There's always Sunday though--it could be then too.
Ok so I missed it and what got him kicked out of the game? So he got a penalty no biggie but did he run his mouth or what?
Damage control by the stripes. Game was getting out of hand and there was nothing stopping Carcillo from dropping the mitts. Easiest way around it was send him for an early shower. I'll take the trade off at that point.
