bring in La Barbera and suspend Smith. Phoenix might be better of skating 6!

Marc Crawford just said Dustin Brown doesn't have a reputation for diving.

lolol

Phx, is unraveling. LA fans should relax. You guys are crying on the Doan hit against Lewis. The smith hit was a cheap shot, but not the end of the world. Every hockey player gets a hit like that eventually, suck it up.

LA is going to kill this series.

I'm aware of that. I just think goalies should not be untouchable from sitting in the box.

Brown gets away with the things he does. I'd go as far to say as that it's an art. I also don't bellyache over diving as a principle.


Smith wants to be protected from Andrew Shaw going after a puck, but he's allowed to jump players in his crease and take cheap shots slashing players in front of him and expects to be protected because of Milan Lucic.

The amount of times throughout the playoffs that brown has dove and embellished without a call got him that call.

Worse than that. It could cause permanent nerve damage.

Gotta say that I think Doan's punishment should be left to what he got on the ice, but Smith's slash was egregious. Dive my ass. Take a good shot to the back of the knee and see how long as keep standing. It's not fun

Kings have controlled this game. It's like Phoenix can't get a word in.

People also forget how solid goalie sticks are, those things are used to stop shots all the time and don't break often, can't remember the last broken goalie stick that I've seen.

It was still a very high percentage shot anyway which is the point.

At the very least he needs to call him. Smith has been berserk in the crease for much of the playoffs. The guy has some anger management issues.

Yeah, I'd agree with Bobby Mac. The official gave Doan 5 and a game because it looked bad... especially when you only see it once. He definitely shouldn't be suspended as they've been punished for that hit.

The other penalties were legit. Smith takes a huge whack at Brown's knees. It's ******** that Brown got an embellishment call. Anyone calling that a dive needs to wake the **** up.
I don't mind Phoenix or LA, both teams are good and I respect both. But I agree with your post.

Like I said earlier, guys need to protect themselves, if they see a player coming, prepare for it, don't get yourself hurt for a power play opportunity.

I didn't see Smith's slash on Brown, but I think it's laughable when refs call diving on a player who just got slashed in the legs.

And if I may use another example from the Penguins. Pens played the blues and Neal got 2 handed in the back of the leg by David Perron, Perron got slashing and Neal got called for diving when he didn't.

I don't know how getting 2 handed in the back of the leg is diving, you can't really embellish that, if someone smacks you across the legs with a hockey stick with force, you're going to fall.

That was more than a slash. It was a strong hack to a vulnerable area behind the leg. With a goalie paddle, no less. Obvious intent to injure.

I heard that he called a mean name too. Brown has a reputation and players like that (many of whom play on my team) will not get just calls because the refs do not want to be made fools of.

Watch it again, Nolan backs into the crease with no help and falls over on Smitty's extended leg.
