As much as that goal looked bad, it's completely explainable. That tip off Carle screwed over Bryz. Bryz's reaction is for the original shot (90%+ of a goalie's reaction to a shot is from before the puck leaves the stick) and he plays it to direct it into the corner. That little tip moved it a foot or two closer to Bryz's center, and he wasn't in a position to stop that.
It's amazing how many unlucky bounces he's is getting. He's snake bitten
couldn't tell if it was tipped from MSG ..... but he's still gotta shake off the obvious rust
Right now, Timonen needs to break his stick across the backs of about 15 players and throw Lavi's coke machine at Bryz. Then he needs to eat the equipment manager to keep his strength up for the rest of the game after such a draining display of rage.
LOL, you should make a Timmo comic.. it would be EPIC just like Kimmo.
I just saw the goals against the Rangers, Biron has played the entire first period. First goal was a penalty shot goal by Toews after a Ranger put his hand over the puck in the crease. It went downhill for the Rangers from there. I can only imagine what Torts did during the intermission.
Well, that was a ****** period. Way too much perimeter play, we're obviously missing a few guys out there but we should definitely be doing better than this. A little grit and hustle would be nice to see in the second period.
Giroux is just bad defensively right now. He's in no-man's-land covering no one far, far too often in our own zone. He's better than this, but at the same time this shows how we really need Couturier and/or Schenn to develop properly (and hopefully fast) so that they can handle the second unit. We're counting on Giroux far too much this season. Having him as our #1 center isn't bad at all, but when we have Brière out there on the second line, we need Giroux to be better defensively than he is right now. It's not really fair on him, but he is our go-to guy both offensively and defensively.
