Is this just me? I think it happened quite often in the 2010 playoffs so maybe I have him stereotyped?
well, early goals would certainly have softened the blow vs what happened in the 2010 playoffs in game 7. i would have been crushed either way.

As Brendan Shanahan clearly states. When an opposing player takes a wide athletic stance against a Bruin player, no call is warranted, however, then there's Quaider... Who's going to pull supplemental discipline every time, just for his facial expressions.

You usually ave to wait a few days to a week to determine if there are any tears.

I know when my daughter hurt her knee in a softball game (player slid into third base and bent her knee a direction it isn't supposed to go), they wouldn't really diagnose anything for a week (ended up just being a slight sprain).

Well... very bad 1st period for the Bruins, last night. Luckly, the Bruins regained momentum after their 1st goal and we pretty much control the game from that point. It was nice to see Rask being a factor after allowing 2 early goals but i still hate the way we turn over the puck in the offensive zone. Too many intercepted blind passes; too many wasted scoring chances. Since the Bruins doesn't have the PP overcome a huge deficit, they need to capitalise on every chance they have. Glad Kelly is ok; though that the hit was bordeline as hell...

Don't worry, the Sens are the only other team I can stand in the NE. You guys have a great team and most importantly your fans are really nice and respectful. I really hope you make the playoffs and give the Habs and their arrogant fans a nice beating. I just ask you a favour: can someone of you Sens fans beat that annoying habs fan attending every Sens-Bruins game in that ugly jersey?

The intent is to prevent players from circling back to line up again if they didn't like how they got set up. It's perfectly ok for the puck to move away from the goal line if it's due to a continuous hockey play. Otherwise, refs would have to blow down every attempt when a player stickhandles and pulls the puck backward away from the goal line just prior to shooting.

Caps game - The 2nd goal by Kundratek was both tipped by a Bruin forward, and a screen shot. If you are accurate that Backstrom and AO were going high all night that disproves your point because neither one scored on Rask at all, let alone high glove. If I were you I wouldn't point out that 2 of the best players in the league couldn't score on what you think is a weakness.

Fehr's OT goal is the only high glove unscreened shot so far of any that you have pointed out, and it was from halfway inside the slot. Rask was taking away the low ice as he should and it was a great shot.

Turris' shot was tipped. Go watch it again. Chara even said it was tipped in his post game interview. No I didn't know goalies are scouted, but thanks for letting me know. If Turris knew to put it high glove, then why did he go low blocker on the shootout shot? Why aren't all these guys going high glove and beating Rask in the shootout?

It doesn't happen even close to once a game. You are just wrong. Keep trying though if you want. Trust me you really don't want me to show you screenshots of these goals. They will prove you wrong.
You are the epitome of someone who is seeing what he wants to see. Tuukka's high glove side is a relative weakness of his. I say relative, because he's so good everywhere else. But to say that it's not an area he needs to work on reveals your inability to objectively assess his strengths and weaknesses.

Looked like a rocket straight upstairs. Like he knew exactly where to put it on TR the second he got it. You know these guys scout goalies, right?


Happens nearly once a game. In games where he's been genuinely bad, which have been very few, even more.

Anyway, love Tuukka. Thinks he's great and should obviously be signed. But, I'd like to see him at improve in that area. I totally disagree that it's a strength of his. That is all.
Agreed. Anyone with even a reasonable amount of objectivity has to be honest with themselves about this. Teams are targeting it for a reason. He's weak there, and he needs to improve or he's going to continually see shots high glove for the rest of his career.

If you add the amount of shots from the left to the total number of shots from beyond the blue line, divide by 20, then subtract the amount of PK time from the final number, Rask has never been scored on high glove.

110 starts, he has a 2.16 and a .927. If he has a relative weakness the following is true:

1. Teams do an awful job of exploiting it.
2. It's a difficult weakness to exploit.

I think we can move on here.

Pretty much what I expected from this Sens team, they`ve been forced to play this way for 10-15 games without certain personel.

That shootout attempt was

a- mildly entertaining
b- enormously ill timed

I hope Kelly is ok, there`s a large number of fans here who hammered he and Pevs non stop who I`ll wager right now, will be pleading for his quick return if he`s out an extended period of time.

TSN said it appeared that he had no structural damage to the knee at this point. Lots of swelling, and things could change once the swelling goes down, but so far it looks like he dodged a bullet.

I think this is true. I would much prefer his weakness be top corner than five hole or low stick side. If it takes a top shelf shot with above average accuracy to beat a goalie, I can live with him being beaten there at times. I still think it needs work.

Quit getting all worked up about inconsequential matters. If the guy wants to try that move he can? How is he showing off? So, you don't think he's attempting to win the game for his team? Let him try whatever he likes. Who are you people that take it upon yourselves to get pissed off at some guy you've likely never seen play before for trying something completely out of left field? I just can't even begin to fathom how it is something that can upset certain people in the way it does...just get over it. Yes, I'm rambling on.
I agree. I don't see the big deal. Players can and should do whatever they can within the rules to score for their team..

A lot of people are pissed here for the ATTEMPT.. can you imagine how bad this place would be if he had scored?

Was it just me or were the linesmen not willing to give the benefit of the doubt on ANY entrances to the offensive zone? (for either team).. I have never seen so many off side calls.

If 2 or more players were entering the zone at the same time, it was almost a 100% guarantee it was going to be called for off side.

Meanwhile a couple weeks ago.. this was onside:




dat consistency.

If he scored it would be a totally different story. It would have worked, and there really wouldn't be anything else to say.

If you're going to try something like that in that scenario, you better be damn sure that you're going to make it...or be prepared for the ridicule and scorn. Great save by Tuukka or not, he was stuffed. If he made it, it's Top 10 material...he didn't so it's Not Top 10 material.

I don't care that he tried it. I'm not pissed about it. He tried something out of the box and he missed...my team got the extra point against a division foe and he looks like a clown. What's there to be mad about?

I read the Sens board for a bit after that attempt- honestly, most of them didn't see the big deal in what he tried. It was a great chance and the only thing that stopped it was an amazing, amazing save by Tuukka.

Really, what was worse- what he did or their 1st shoot out attempt that wasn't even on net? He at least gave it a chance of going in.

Also, he's done the same move down in the AHL and scored on it.

Folks are going to complain regardless. So, meh.

I thought the shootout attempt was bad ass. He missed, but he got the shot off just as he wanted to. If he fell or lost control of the puck then I'd feel more inclined to laugh at the guy. I don't see this as any different than pulling the puck back and lofting a shot up and over the goalie, or skating in at a snail's pace like Patrick Kane and just waiting 'til the last second to shoot. If you score, great, slick move. If not....you missed, just like 65% of the other shootout attempts
