Which might explain why it's not called very often. Tough for a ref to kick a guy out if he's only so-so on the call or thinks it's just "normal" scrum work.
if you make a spearing motion and miss, it's supposed to be an automatic double minor. So even if you think he missed, there should be 4. The most famous non-call on a spearing in Caps history has to be the premeditated Briere spear, 5 years ago (ugh, that long?), and the most famous called one is probably in game 7 against Philly back in the 80s in the first period.
So what do we call Eakin? Hopefully he turns into someone we can throw in with O8 and Backs on the first line, or with that great third somewhere.
Watched Hendricks take punishment in front of the net. At least we know he is drawing a defender.
PP looking much better than last year. Didn't quite finish, but at times the puck movement looked swift and calculated. None of this bombs from the point nonsense.
