In any case, we didn't lose because of those calls. Sure they were bad calls but if we weren't so horrible at keeping a 3rd period lead, this wouldn't have happened as it did countless times during the regular season.
The main factor was not sticking to their style of play over the previous two periods. Had they played the way they did in the first and second, they would have won the game and this series would be tied. Instead, the laid back and told the Sens to come at them. The Sens did, the Sens won.

Here's a question for you;

Both teams learned what side the faceoff was going to be on at the same time, how does this provide an advantage to either team? Does a faceoff to the right of Price give him an inherent disadvantage?

I can understand that a mistake was made, but to put the goal on that error is about the whiniest thing I've ever heard of in all my time watching hockey. Can anyone think of an incident more minor than a faceoff positioning (right side vs left, not wrong zone) that has received this much complaining?

This is correct.

we have seen it many many times this season. Sit back in the 3rd and hoping for the best just doesnt cut it.

Agree. Sometimes I wonder why the coaches can't see this and tell his team to wake up.

Prove that a face-off is winnable? Okay.



This is a face-off circle. See the red dot in the middle? That's between both teams' centres. The puck is dropped between the two and whoever is faster gets the puck.

Prove that Montreal gave Ottawa too much time with the puck? Okay.
It ended up in the back of the net.

Anything else?

PSSST, just so you know. You are having an argument on the internet, and its one you cannot win. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

can you think of such a minor incident the league felt the need to aknowledge or apologize for the mistake ?

It gives them an excuse to create an alternate reality in their minds... one where their team isn't down 3-1 in a series and validates their claims that they have the better team.

They have so little to cheer for right now... let them have this.

If there were to apologize it wouldn't be public information

Also the ref pointed to the left (to Price's right) circle as soon as play stopped so the real problem, even though the faceoff should have been in the other circle, was that Therrien wasn't paying attention

Sure, I don't know 100% but they had a better chance of winning the game had they played that way, rather than sit back and attempt to play shut-down hockey.

Small details counts alot, specialy on a tight game. Some players are better to do the faceoff at one side of the ice, thats a fact too.

The arguments being made in this thread are downright ********. You're arguing about winning faceoffs. You should like 15 year old children. This is what playoff hockey turns HFBoards into. Unbelieveable.

probably cause it was obvious to him where the faceoff was going to be ?

Approaching an intersection, its obvious to me that a car should stop at a stop sign.

See? I can do it too.
FACT: Desharnais was thrown out of the faceoff, AGAIN (i think in this series, he's got to have been thrown out at least 20 times). Was it a PERFECTLY winnable face-off, highly unlikely given Gallagher was the man to take the draw second-go around.
