That's a big reason why the Fisher goal happened: nobody was moving quickly enough to react to the play in the slot.

If we come out with the same intensity in the third as we did in the first two periods, we've got this. They can't handle our forecheck.
Our three successful PP so far involved moving the puck quickly. Skate it if necessary, pass if possible ... but move it quick and make them shift to cover the new angles. Erat's skate around kept creeping in while circling .. then pass out to Ellis ... then circle and creep some more. I can tolerate the Erat Dance of Circularity as long as it's having the desired effect. When the defenders just let him dance along the boards and don't waste energy ... he needs to try something else.

great game for us.. but just like calgary we're playing a team out of the playoff picture.. hopefully the offense continues. but I fully expect fisher, hornqvist, etc to continue to suck.

on another note, love hillen being the scratch. like our defense tonight for the most part

How the hell was that "conclusively" kicked in?

Where was the distinct kicking motion? I never got a good look at it, but from what I saw, it just bounced off his skate and into the net.

Looked like a redirection + stick jab from Horny. I'd be VERY hard-pressed to call that a conclusive kicking motion, but, such is the NHL.

I can see how they came to that call ... but didn't see what I would consider a distinct kicking motion.

From the Hurricanes board:

"BTW, no excuse, but this is the worst officiated game of the year. All you can ask is for it to be the same both ways. This hasn't."

"What brilliant fans there are there. Telling the ref he sucks after he called it a good goal on the ice. Obviously they are mad he didn't wave it off immediately."




Stay classy, gentlemen.

Eh it's their board. They are having a tough season. Let 'em vent.

Every fan base chants "ref you suck" though. It has nothing to do with intelligence.

There's venting, and then their is calling an entire fanbase stupid about a questionable call, while in the next breath complaining about the "one-sided" reffing in the game.

Josi's aversion to physical play is going to lead to a lot more calls like that one. He has to body up on his man and put him on his keester.
