It's not referenced anywhere. It's just how the rule is called and has been called for years now. If the guys are close to one another, they'll give leeway up until the recipient takes possession.

BTW, with all this talk about Price being injured, the center of the best line we had all season being out is a huge blow. Maybe Price doesn't give up that second goal, but maybe Zucc's line is more effective this game, as it wasn't very effective, at least not like usual.

Yes, but don't you know Price would've also drastically improved the Habs' transition game and even helped their PP? True story.

Dunno if sarcastic or not, but that's absolutely right. As you might've further explained, his outlet passing ability is tantamount when there's not one but 2 (or 3 at times) open guys to pass to…

Yep, Habs fans were all but blaming their poor offensive output on Price being out. It's ridiculous. Great goalie but still somehow gets overrated by his fans. Habs fans are the biggest homers ever.

The Habs would have gotten 60 shots on goal last night if Jesus were playing. Give me a ****ing break. When will the excuses end? I mean, it must be hard for Habs fans to come to turn that their team loses fair and square but it's getting ridiculous.

In other words: Jesus Price would'Ve obviously made the Habs score at least two more goals. So how dare we even talk about losing Brassard, when they not only lost their star goaltender, but also major playmaker. That's why with Price they would easily be up 2-0 this series, because he alone would've set up five goals in the third period of game 1!

The Habs have a mix of Wayne Gretzky and Dominik Hasek in net, but a little bit better. Habs fans can't lose on their own merit, it's excuses after excuses.

BTW, the reason Hank only gave up a goal in the last 3 games against the Penguins is because the Penguins don't have Wayne Gretzky in net. If he played against Price every game he'd average something like 5 goals against. True story.

Price played 2 and 2/3 of a game this year against the Giants and Montreal scored a total of 2 goals (one that shouldn't even have counted). Without Gretzky they would have scored 0. MVP!

On the GDT speculation is that he isn't playing, here it's that he is. What the hell?

Who knows, AV said in french that Brass is not playing tonight, but in English said he was day to day. Could be messing with the habs or Brass may not be quite ready

He can be both "day-to-day" and "not playing tonight" - sounds like that is the case, wouldn't expect him to play.

That makes no sense. You would prefer him to play with say 1 arm?

he practiced and skated with his line yesterday, he must have had a setback today. or maybe he was ready and with a 2-0 cushion they felt they could afford to give him a couple more days. we need him sunday or else we're looking at jt miller since carcillo will probably be suspended.

If I was a betting man, I'd say he plays this Sunday. I even think he could have played tonight, but maybe they thought we could win and up go 3-0 without him.
