Backes and Oshie are trying too many pretty plays.

Blues are getting outplayed by a wide margin in this period. Columbus came to play and the Blues are not matching their intensity. The forwards look horrible this period. No one's connecting with their passes, and the physical presence of the Blue Jackets has them on their heals.

Like i said though, I'm not watching the game so I don't know what happened.
There's really no way to do either one of those things without a stick if the opposing player has any ability whatsoever. All Backes can do is physically keep a guy from walking right down the middle of the ice with the puck.

I would be surprised if that were their protocol. I don't claim to be a better coach than anyone on our bench, but there is literally no sense in staying on the ice without a stick. It's worth the risk to leave for a new one (or change) especially when the trainer with a stick (or player) should be ready on the bench. In this instance we had absolutely no pressure on their points for the end of the power play, basically guaranteeing they will keep it in. Meanwhile Backes can't do anything. He only blocks a lane for a player to skate, not a pass (unless he gets very lucky and intersects it). At best, he limits a shot from the point. In short, it makes little no sense, and if anybody here has played competitive hockey, you'd probably understand where i'm coming from when I say you're useless without a stick.

You don't necessarily need a stick to block a shot, and it is the second period with the long skate to the bench. I don't know, the other team has scored when the player left the zone and when the player stayed soo what can you do?

You're even more useless at the other end of the rink.

You're right, that is what happened. You can see my previous post on why I disagree with that assesment, however. You can't effectively get in a passing lane, only a skating lane. It is worth the risk to rush off. The Backes situation will lead to a goal more than the Oshie situation, imo.

That was probably the protocol in a 5 on 3 situation. We had the far bench in this situation. I think you may have seen him grab a stick if the bench were closer.

The only way to block a shot without a stick is if the guy blasts it right into you. Nobody is going to do that on the PP when you can't stop a pass to either side of him.

I've been there...you're completely useless.

As an aside, the Oshie situation that some others are referencing was on a 4 on 3...different situation completely.
