FYI, tonight Pete and Terry are doing a "Hockey 101" broadcast and will be doing NO PLAY BY PLAY. If you want the play-by-play, check out 104.5 FM where Eli Gold is doing the broadcast or simply tune into the NESN broadcast (Boston feed) if you have it available.
Ugh - bad call. Dumont is entitled to make a play on that puck. Thomas, coming out of his net and effectively upending Dumont (and punching him in the head several times). It was unintentional on Thomas's part, but it is certainly not a penalty on Dumont.
If Thomas wants to play that way, then truly send the boys at the net.
You have got to be kidding me on that 'call' on Dumont. Dumont goes to the net, Thomas comes out and they collide. Thomas and Chara both beat Dumont while he is defenseless, yet Dumont gets goaltender interference.
Well I like pete and terry but I ended up watching the bruins guys, the hockey 101 is great for new fans but it was annoying me. Plus the Bruins broadcast was in high def too lol
But unfortunately their play by play guy said Dumont ran into Thomas on purpose, which even Thomas said later that wasn't the case. So Dumont runs into him and tries to minimize the impact, the guy starts beating him with his blocker and gives him a shiner, Chara is beating on him, they get zero penalties and Arnott stands up for the team and they get an easy 5 on 3 goal... that was ridiculous.
Having said that, Mason played really well I thought he made some really good saves especially early on... But Thomas won them that game, with getting that penalty and playing out of his mind as well.
This was a game I wish we had Tootoo or Hordichuck, we needed a little more toughness.
And yeah our defensemen let us down in the end, zanon got faked out of his shorts.
Even thought it was annoying to me, I thought the Hockey 101 was pretty good. Of course I rolled my eyes at most questions, but I just took it for what it was. Hopefully some people learned some things and perhaps some new fans got something out of it. I thought they did a good job of trying to talk about some other elements that even knowledgeable fans would appreciate too. Sullivan did a good job in the broadcast booth....
My fiance (she's from up north! ...omg she doesn't know hockey!) only got into hockey after I started taking her to games. Instead of asking me all the questions during the game, she just sat back and learned some from the broadcast. It was great for people like her.
