It looks different partly because those two teams do not playnas hard defensively as the Rangers and Sabres; and because their forwards are more creative.

When you trade depth to get a player, the team will obviously look lost without him. Glad Nash is back, he's absolutely a difference maker on this team.

Ennis went down to the ice for all of two seconds and was back in the play. I honestly thought they were bringing the stretcher out for richards. Then he's back out next shift. I think us as Buffalo fans have a problem with how much richards over sold the hit. Not a dive just oversold the aftermath.

He wasn't out next shift, he went to the locker room.

I haven't seen Richards "fake" an injury before. It's honestly more reasonable that he was in pain and stunned since he did just go headfirst into the boards, than him faking injury.

As for the hit on Ennis, it was penalty worthy and I think the right thing was called, but in my opinion Girardi was trying to hit him shoulder to shoulder and knock him off the puck in the corner. You can see him setting up for the hit while Ennis was still skating along the boards, and then throws it as Ennis turns. It was bad timing by Girardi, he probably thought he could knock Ennis off the puck before he got a chance to make a play with it, but misjudged and ended up hitting Ennis in the back. Penalty worth but in my mind there's a difference between something like that and shoving a guy in the back the way Kaleta did. Girardi was at least trying to make a legitimate play, Kaleta was doing nothing but shoving a guy into the boards from a dangerous position

Umm...Richards went into the locker room and was only back when we scored our 2 goals. He was stunned from the impact. Easy to sit behind a computer and say that players "oversell the hit" when most of us don't play hockey, and especially not anywhere close to NHL speed. And Girardi was trying the hit Ennis in the shoulder, Ennis turned, and got hit from behind. But nice try.

This was beaten to death on the main board, but from the impact, the reaction, and the recovery, it's blatantly obvious that Richards suffered a stinger. They hurt like hell for a few minutes, but the recovery is usually pretty quick.

Glad Richards is ok. That hit is a textbook example of how players get paralyzed. You don't have to be going 100mph you just have to hit your head/neck in the right spot.

To me it immediately looked like he suffered a "stinger", the kind you see LBs and Safeties get frequently in the NFL.

Again very glad he's ok. So unnessecary and dangerous. And some are calling it a dive? How clueless can you get.

Not to mention that trainers were working with Richards all of the time between shifts. But hey, see what you want to see, even though Kaleta is pretty much Matt Cooke 2.0.

That happens when you watch the scene in slow motion and think it's in real speed.

Per Katie Strang, POS Kaleta has a phone hearing @3PM today. Means that the most he can get is 5 games. On my phone, can't post tweet. https://twitter.com/katiestrangespn/...73318980726784

I don't care if Gaborik got two assists last night.

He was downright horrendous. He literally watched every single play go on in front of him, was a second late jumping on every puck or man the entire game. I don't know what his issue is but hes got to start skating and shooting.

He's too good of a player to be a spectator for a half dozen games and then decide to show up and net 2. He's too reliant on the whole "sharking" method where hes waiting in the weeds looking for perfect passes while he watches his linemates do all the dirty work. He needs to start asserting himself. Kreider is playing the Portland Pirates tomorrow instead of the Flyers for doing the same thing (so Torts says).

He jammed his neck and probably had the wind knocked out of him. When you get kicked in the balls, you writhe around on the floor and then magically five minutes later you are good to go. Cut it out. As for Ennis, he wasn't hurt. He could have been but he wasn't.

Well since I thought 3 games is what he should get, I won't be too upset with 2.

Shanny will give Kaleta a stern warning and a $2500 fine. That's just how it is.

It makes perfect sense. Richards dove in a way that it somehow looked like he could have been seriously injured. Guy should be in movies.

He can crash into hard surfaces head first and be completely OK! Guy should be a stunt double.

Even if Richards sold the hit I don't really have an issue with it. I dont think he did but even if he did, his team wasn't playing very inspired at the time. A 5 minute power play was exactly the kind of thing the team needed to get going and it eventually led to 2 points.

Kaleta put himself in that situation, he has a rep. he was going to the box for atleast 2 regardless. He cost his team with his stupid play. Buffalo has no one to blame but Kaleta. They were winning, the rangers were playing uninspired. They probably would have won the game if not for that stupid play.
