Are you kidding me, Mitchell played an excellent game tonight, he was hard on the forecheck and great down low esp in the third keeping the puck deep and also getting the puck out. I though he played great tonight. You dont want Scott when you have the D they have, they will make them look silly. You already seen one shift in which Rupp was on and they couldint get it out as he was slow to get up to the point. They started good with a strong cycle Rupp Anismiov and Mitchell but than got caught on the other end.
Lundqvist will get a fine. Not the smartest move in the world. First, he was caught stating "You ******* suck" on camera, twice. Secondly, it was to the officials. Third, he inferred that the NHL wanted Ottawa back in the game.
Great to see him passionate. Not the smartest comments by him. And completely out of character for him.
Don't be surprised if Lundqvist sees a $10k+ fine.
HOnestly goal 1 and goal 2 were both kicked in by Neil and neither was jugded not a goal. The first was a shot but on contact with his foot he had a kicking motion that should not have been a goal. The second i thought for sure he got a peice of the puck in an evident kicking motion. The fact the ref didnt say no goal at first is beyond me.
