I wonder if John Erskine and Wayne Simmonds will fight later into the game.

Which the lineman can call correct ? So 4 refs ether missed it or think that was a good clean play ?

Feel for the Flyers fans who didn't even get a power play out of that. That's even worse than Keith only getting a 2 minute minor for his elbow on Sedin. What in the hell are the refs smoking?!?

The Washington announcers said that Erskine "flinched to protect himself." Add dumb as bricks to the irritating voice.

And subsequently missed that part where the Caps announcers said Erskine got away with one. Good job.

See previous reply.

The lengths some people go to in order to pretend other teams' announcers are absolute homers is ridiculous. You guys need better attention spans.

Yep. Keep your head up so you could get hit with an elbow right between the eyes! That's much better.

No call for the elbow though, just like there's been pretty much no calls for anything tonight in our way. The one we did get was wrong too!

Rinaldo loses more than he wins, he's constantly fighting people much bigger than him, kid will fight anyone but he's definitely no heavy weight.

If Erskine didn't look and threw the elbow out for protection, then he might have been ok. But he looked Simmonds in the eye and threw it out. Intentional, high impact, head shot. At least 4 or 5 matches.

In the replay you see Erskine look straight at Simmonds and then raise up the elbow. It was definitely on purpose.

Definite suspension, most if not all Caps fans agree

Is that a good idea? Does he want the other eye to be black as well?

I have the game loaded up on gamecenter. I rewound it because I couldn't believe he said it. Perhaps I haven't watched to the point were he changed his mind. If that's the case then I'm sorry. His voice is still irritating though.

These are things that I know.

That said, Rinaldo wins 19 out of 20.

Thanks for the replay, Fel.

Ugly. Can't believe there was no call on the ice. I'd be shocked if there wasn't a multiple game suspension.

Oh my.

Claude Giroux has got to be my most unlucky fantasy hockey pick in such a while.

All his teammates are going down.
