Petey is right about the Sbisa slash that should have been called on Erat's second break. I'm ok with it not being called, though, because the original call that got him the PS wasn't really anything more than a couple of taps on the hand. Stupid on whoever it was, but it wasn't really penalty shot worthy. Sbisa did swing his stick from over his head to slash on the second breakaway, so it's even.
The Preds looked much better towards the end of that period than they did at the beginning. Let's hope they can take that into the third.
I'm going to bed soon. Everyone will probably be glad to stop seeing my four or five posts in a row
If anyone wants a good laugh during the intermission there is a thread on the main boards about how the Lightning were playing a 1-3-1 "forechecking" scheme (the lone forechecker was playing towards the point rather than pressuring), and the Flyers just sort of stood there not playing the puck. It happened a couple of times in the game apparently, and at one point the Flyers just stood in their own zone with the puck for 30 seconds before the refs blew the whistle. The video is pretty funny
Seeing the Hornqvist goal again I have to say that was a pretty sick pass by Wilson
it was a sick pass. On the replay, ( not to take anything away from Hornqvist ), he actually never touched the puck. He pushed the Dmans stick, which put the puck in the goal.
Great penalty shot by Erat!!!!
Hope you guys get the win! The Ducks are VERY aware of where Tootoo is at all times!
