I love Boyle, but his recent inability to hold in a play bothers me. Sometimes he's amazing at keeping it in. Lately it seems that every play that goes to Boyle's point passes him by, and he doesn't even realize it until it's too late on many occasions. They should put him on the left point, far less of their plays go that way
Richards is much worse in that department. None of the guys are really spark plugs in interviews.
Who would be after a period in the NHL? I'm sure you'd be pretty tired. It takes work to talk in that situation. Give them a break, they're giving up time that they could be getting ready for the next period.
That second goal was pretty terrible. It should have been an easy stop, he had already blocked it!
That play that just happened is what's wrong with Tampa. You're rushing in with two men. Do they put it on net and go for a rebound, much like the play the Leafs JUST SCORED ON? No. They try for a pretty thread pass and it's easily picked off and turned the other way. They need to stop that crap ALL the time. Just get it on net. Just take the shot. Good things happen every now and then.
What crap. Kubina killed Boyle and they missed the pass and now the game is tied. Stupid Toronto team. I'm agreeing with the Chief, Toronto always gets the calls. What BS. At least it was on the side of a former Lightning player...I guess that makes it OK....NOT!
Boyle carried the puck in, got to the circles and then Kubina tripped him (pretty much a two hand to the skate blades) with no attempt to play the puck the refs don't call a penalty..puck gets out of the zone because no one covered the point for Boyle. Leads to a 2 on none, Homer had no chance.
That was the first time I think I've ever flipped out at a Ranger mistake. The time for the cute crap is over. He can't keep getting by on his rep from last season. I see something like that and I want him on the bench.
I honestly don't know what game the refs are watching. If that wasn't a trip on Boyle then I don't know what is. I am baffled right now. We lost to the Leafs at home because of a ******** goalie interference call. Now this? Man, I realize the game isn't over yet but I just don't see us pulling this one out.
I guess the league has figured the Leafs have lost too many in a row.
