5.8 for Kesler. Form wasn't great, toes could've been closer together.

I'm not blaming the refs on that. We need to get better on the PK.

Meh.

Maybe the first one, but Kesler had his back turned. I know it is in his character since he is a renouned diver. And I am hard on him. But I don't think he really dove honestly.

Kessler turns sideways and leaps towards the boards

The Polak one is questionable.

The Pietrangelo hit was a complete dive by Kesler.

I'm not a Blues or Canucks fan, neutral and trying to enjoy this game. KESLER IS AN EMBARASSMENT TO HOCKEY. The guy is a diving dork.

Not going to call dive on either of the Kesler plays. Could be, might not be.

Thanks. Some of them are just ridiculous. That or the entire Blues team is superhuman.

Backes and Oshie were phenomenal on that kill. Huge face off wins and the effort by Oshie was superb.

On the first one from Polak, Kesler whipping his OWN head back as he falls was harder than the hit. He sold that pretty hard.

The second, he waits for Pietrangelo to hit him and flings himself at the boards.

It's probably hard for a Vancouver fan to see something so obvious.

The Polak one he kinda targetted the head, although he was in a tough spot.

The 2nd one maybe, I would have to have another looked. Cause he had his backturned well in advanced, and Live it looked like Pietrangelo used some significant force.

Good PK though, hopefully Polak is okay, don't like to see people hurt.

I really don't care if it was a dive. I am just glad we killed the hell out of those two penalties.

Well when you look at it as if it is a dive automatically without giving any consideration of otherwise then it is hard to see it any other way, which is the way you seemed to view it.

Not going to get into a big argument about it here though, I'm sure STL fans wouldn't appreciate that.

For someone who hits and plays defense, Kesler is a disgrace. I can at least somewhat understand the small, soft offensive players that dive, but Kesler has to be one of the only players of his style that constantly dives.
