1:Look the replay and watch the reaction of Kostopoulos.Van Ryn turned his back at the LAST SEC.When Kostouplos was about to hit him , he was not facing the board.It's was not close to intensional at all.Van Ryn need to go back in school to learn hockey.He deserved a 5 min but not a game match.
2:Actually , Schem used his feet on Kostytin stick and flyed right into the board.Kostytin barely touched Him.Actually it's was him who touched Kostytin.
3:After being assaulted 15 time in 1 period.I guess he was tired of this crap?Are you the next bullies?
4:Markhov? Are you pretending marhkov 's a dirty player ??.See 1 for reference..
1. On point one TKost should have held up on the check regardless. I agree with the call
2. On point two it was not a slew foot by any definition.
Slew-footing is the act of a player or goalkeeper using his leg or foot to knock or kick an opponent’s feet from under him, or pushes an opponent’s upper body backward with an arm or elbow, and at the same time with a forward motion of his leg, knocks or kicks the opponent’s feet from under him, causing him to fall violently to the ice.
It is debatable whether AKost intended to use the stick to take him out. It seemed subtle but Schenn did lose his footing
1. If someone was boarded, then that needs to be called.
2. You try wearing a pad and getting a stick shoved into your stomach, I know how it feels, you don't.
3. The refs look at the puck and don't keep staring at the goalie to see if he gets poked, it's not conventional way of reffing.
The means justifies the reason eh.
LOL I am not sure if you are agreeing or disagreeing with my point. I love the internet
Anyway my point is that OneSharpMarble (apt name by the way) thinks it is okay to butt end a goalie because he has pads and lots of other stuff went on in the game.
People should stop *****ing about that butt end on Price. Why?
1) Kostopoulos' hit from behind on Van Ryn which sent him to hospital.
2) Kostitsyn's slew foot on Schenn, very dangerous play going into the boards.
3) Carey Price instigating on Garbs with a shot to the back of the head.
4) Other hits from behind in the game.
Kostitsyn did NOT slew foot Schenn. His stick was ahead of him and it barely touched Schenn who was already falling down. Wake up and use your eyes instead of your biased mind.
IMO, Tom Kost's hit was intentional and nasty, hope he gets a multi-game suspension. IMO, Grab's nutcracker(it wasn't a midsection shot) butt end on Price was cheap, and meant to do harm, though none was done. IMO, A. Kostitsyn's stick on the skate was accidental and not deliberate.
I think that the Habs/Leafs rivalry has finally evolved past the "we hope we win" stage to the "we hope we win, and we really hate you guys" stage after tonight's game. In Habs/Nordiques kind of territory. I like it.
I think its time to start thinking about the next game Tuesday against the Sens.... Charbo needs to run a practice or two without pucks and just have them skating and skating because there hasnt been much of it lately.... Laffs played a better game tonight no doubt about it.... and now the Ruins fans are tooting their horns...
Guy Carbonneau : "the most embarrassing game in my 2 1/2 years of coaching this team."
As for Milbury's comments, he's one of those I stay away from when watching the very few hockey-talk shows I care for, since I'd rather watch the games instead of hear endless commentary on them, and make up my own mind
