I thought it made sense. He was sardonically suggesting the Blues powerplay cannot, realistically, be fixed. You aren't going to find it funny after an explanation, obviously, but it clearly fit the joking tone from here.

Didn't get you an autograph? Kick him to the curb.

I mean if my girlfriend met a Victoria's Secret model and didn't get an autographed pictured, she'd be done.

I couldn't get past the Angels-Ducks and Cardinals-Blues connection. Just a strange coincidence.

Anyway, it's always great to get a win. We're staying in the top 8, actually top 6 or so. So that's great.

I think something was wrong with Perry tonight he seemed to be laying on the ice quite a bit granted he had a lot of help but his balance seemed really bad tonight

I think the other notion is that you keep the fluid cycle going rather than getting the mindset of so many set plays. I think that may help get players to quit standing around so much on the PP.

I don't disagree with you, but I think there is more to this strategy. I also suspect its temporary.

I put that goal mostly on Pietro. He made a bad decision (unusual for him) to leave the front of the goal to go get the puck on the board, missed the deflection, and allowed the goal to set up. I assume he just was unaware that anyone was charging into the slot.

You'd like to see Perron take that guy tight, but I'm not sure that was his responsibility. He looked a bit surprised to see Pietro leave, too.

Pietro probably shouldn't have left, but you can't have two guys on one guy who doesn't have the puck. Berglund and Colaiacovo were checking Koivu, who got the puck to Selanne, who was completely open.

Part of the problem is that with Ryan streaking in like that, Pietro is faced with keeping Selanne from coming out to the front of the net AND watching Ryan. In theory, if Pietro waits, Perron, Stewart, or Berglund will get to the front of the net and he can only worry about Selanne, but I respect making the active decision instead of the inactive one. Pressuring Selanne could make that a lower percentage pass, he just happened to get it through. Most guys don't get passes like that through Pietrangelo.

There's also something to be said for relying on your teammates. Considering how good their coverage normally is, pressuring Selanne and hoping/trusting that somebody gets to Ryan isn't unreasonable, even if it was the incorrect call. Watching the replay, it all goes down so quickly, there's no way Pietro can know that nobody is on Ryan. I think he's just assuming that if somebody's headed to the net, a teammate has him. It's a case where the "right" play could have easily led to a goal against as well.

Ultimately, I think the biggest factor was Colaiacovo's not winning that puck battle behind the net, but skill and speed do that to you.
