Ya I think as a motivational speaker, he really knows how to instill confidence within his own players.

"Omg Ralph is letting me take a defensive zone face off in OT... I think I am able to do this! In fact, I know I can."

Yeah, let's overanalyze that instead.

In all seriousness tho, presumably it was just because Rishaug blamed Gagner. Might as well set the record straight.

How do you not win the fight after landing the landing the last few blows bringing the guy down on ice and finishing on top of him??

Doing fist pumps to jack up the crowd after doesnt mean youve won the fight..
We won the fight because Kassian (who was playing on the top line with the Sedins and was very effective) was taken off the ice for the last 5 min of the game in exchange a guy who likely wasn't going to get any more shifts. Smart move by Krueger.

I just knew Hemsky was gonna scored on the shootout after I saw him spit and then stick his tongue out before he picked up the puck lol. Loved watching the team celebration after they won too.

I'm going to call it as I see it, Shawn Horcoff had a strong game in his "new" role on the team, lacked finish, but getting chances and creating turnovers is nothing to sneeze at.

I also like Belanger's game, simple solid. According to the stats all the Centers were good in the draw, bodes well going forward.

agree... With the now role, Horc can whiff all he wants and I wont mind it. That line created pressure all night.

Both goals against were Potter/Gagner IMO.

If SS back checked at all on the first goal he could have easily neutralized Edler and taken some pressure off Potter who blew his gap control on the play, probably because he thought SS was going to check Edler instead of coasting back into the play behind him.

On the 2nd goal Whitney followed the puck carrier into the corner like he was supposed to on the play. The other Dman is supposed to cover the low slot and Gagner needs to cover Kassian drifting in from the high slot.

Great end result considering Hall and RNH had poor games. Horcoff was great, and the top 4 on D was very good as well.

It might have deflected slightly off of Potters skate or stick but if it didn't... and i dont think it did... That was a straight up bad goal. As per the announcing "that is one Dub would really want to have back". The announcers commented multiple times through out the game that Dub was at fualt for that one.

People just make stuff up to suit thier hate... I guess.
I like Potter as a 5th or 6th guy.

I went back and re-watched replay and Potter did not play it well. He had to pivot and skate to catch Lapierre coming out of the box is true, but it was obvious while Potter was still in neutral zone that (a) pass wasn't going to Lapierre (b) Lapierre was of no danger since he was straddling blue line, going away from the net and (c) he had help in the shape of Smid coming off the bench to take Lapierre.

Potter should've turn and pressured Edler andnot given up 20+ feet inside the blueline. A guy can make a bad read or a bad play a not be garbage. Chalk it up to being out of practice and timing is off a little bit.

I also considered calling part 2 " Are neutral zones shorter in North American Rinks? "

Pretty easy for the unbiased eye to also see SS in full glide mode only a few feet behind Edler.

Yeah and Dubnyk probably should've made the save. Yakupov made a bad pass/Edler made a great read. Usually goals don't happen because 1 person screwed up, but because multiple people screw up. The game happens fast, they're all rusty. Still Potter's read/react/gap control is (in my opinion) the primary error here. If he holds his blueline better, Gagner might catch Edler even though he's coasting on the backcheck, maybe? Maybe Edler dumps it in and goes for a change? who knows.... but giving up the blueline like that is a timing thing that doesn't come back overnight. I didn't say shoot Potter, waive him or bring back Kurtis Foster.....all I said was bad play.... happens. Did Gagner or Dubnyk help Potter ...no. Did Ganger cause Potter to give up the blueline like he was a member of the French Army? no. Gonna happen again and again.

Uh, no. Hemsky is #83, Yakupov is #64. Hemsky is right handed, Yakupov is left handed. It was Yakupov passing to Hemsky.

An unbiased eye would also clearly see Sam hustling back to cover the 3rd man on the rush(number 5).

Doesn't matter, It's Dubnyks fault for letting in a soft goal like that.

That "other D-man" is Whitney, not Potter. Potter is watching his man, who is at the far face off dot.

Here, let me make this very simple for you:


In the green circle is Potter and the player he is covering. In the red circles are Whitney and the man he is supposed to be covering. Plain and simple, the second goal was either Whitney or Gagner's fault, depending on the system and responsibilities; the coach tells us it's not Gagner, so we know it's Whitney.

Any questions?
