Actually, I was referring to the 3rd period. It was a long phone call

In the third, he was talking about how Stewart had a great game and his play on Ott had changed the game.

The best part is how everyone, including Brunet and Houle, including myself (I'm completely against on-ice violence), I mean everyone was happy with his actions. We all knew it was going to cost us PK minutes, maybe even a goal or two, but we all felt it's what was needed for the team.

My guess is he did not "plan" it - but it came naturally.

The result - the whole team played as a team again. They felt proud again of being together.

That's priceless - we'll always remember this

The whole point was willingness to take 2-5 minutes more on the PIM to stop Dallas from running around our guys. The inspired PK we played following this is what got this team fired up. But that ignited what spirited play is Steward willing to pummel down Ott. Not that I blame Ott, he's doing his job well.
My personal thoughts when it happened and after seeing the result, I thought we'd lose because of the goals scored during the following PP but that by next game, we'd be more fired up by gooning up this game.
And if we got out of that by miracle (which we did), that victory was but a clinch because of the momentum.

Personally, I can't believe he only got a minor for that. He got a few good punches in.

If the ref's and the league, had any amount of pride for themselves, the game or the teams.. they'd call an unsportsmanlike on Ott for being a pain in the ass and none of this would have happened.

I'm all for the role of being a pest, but begging guys to take your head off for the sake of a 2 minute penalty, isn't good for the game.

At least be a man and drop the gloves, after running around taking cheap shots at anyone in the way.

So, we need Stewart to fight against all the middleweight and BGL for all the heavyweight on our fourth line!
Boulton and Valabik didn't do much yesterday, O'byrne beat the crap out of their 18 year old rookie and they did nothing.

I We'll get tougher each year from now on. Always said the toughness issue would resolve from within...we got lots of mean kids coming. Stewie, Paquet, Stejskal, Torp, Valentenko, Conboy, Emelin to name a few... The Bruins/Flyers will have a little surprise...

Sorry to invade your board but,
You guys are funny.

IF the habs had not of killed off alot of other penalties in the period you might be able to say the fight brought them together to kill the penalty, but that simply was not the case. The 5 on 3 changed the momentum and killed the momentum for the Stars.

Ott can not drop the gloves per the Rulebook. I understand everyone wants to say he turtles anyway, but now he has no choice. Ott gets in plenty of fights and probably wins over 50% of them. You can talk about hockey code, but code doesn't win games, power plays do. So if Ott is a pest and gets under the opposing players skin, and then turtles, who is the smart one. I say screw code and win the game. I will say that the Habs is one of my favorite teams, especially with all the old Stars which are old Habs, which are now Habs. Like Gainey, Carboneou (SP? I just don't care), I believe there are a couple more. Isn't muller a coach or something? Anyway, and they did play better after the fight which was really due to killing off the 5 on 3. The Habs should have been nowhere near competitive tonight as the Stars should have cleaned them up in the first. That didn't happen, Habs won... Good game

when ott was taking runs at koivu and chirping at kovalev, I started thinking back to the 80's and imagined what semenko would do if ott did that to gretzky or what probert would do if ott did that yzerman.

Something has gone wrong since then.

great work by Stewart...

and great officiating from Fraser (I can't believe I said that). That was a veteran call.

Probably goes back to the instigator rule, because Ott knows there's nothing much that can be done. Semenko, Brown.. Marty McSorley.. they would have punched the **** out of him by the time his second shift was over.

He was throwing elbows at heads which was getting really annoying. I mean, if you can' fight because of an injury, prepare to get your face kicked in.

I generally don't have a problem with players being a pest etc, just keep it safe and clean.

Stewart

The best part about the Stewart things was, at the start of the second period on the Dallas feed, they memtioned: The start of the period is delay because the ice crew is trying to find Ott's teeth in the ice shavings!!!! what a laugh.

Does anyone think that Stewart might make Kosto expandable next season?

I'm just wondering because I love Kosto and would like to keep him next year for depth on that fourth line (Laraque/Metro/Stewart/Kosto).

Look, if Ott can't drop the gloves now, then, don't run your mouth around, because someone will come challenge you and something like yesterday will happen!

Stewie is the man!

Not that I'm complaining about Stewart's penalty, but I think that the refs should show a lot more consistency. Remember when Souray jumped Armstrong? Pittsburgh got a 7 minute power play. Stewart jumps Ott, he gets a 2 for roughing. Was there that much of a big difference between those two plays?

I'm surprised that he only got 4 mins

In a way, it was stupid...but I think it was needed.

I love Stewart

NO, he does.

If either of them did it and it cost the Habs a game or two, you'd all be crying out the other sides of your mouths.

Difference is Ott was throws 5 or 6 questionable hits a game. Armstrong is generally clean. When he Koivu, it was charging but it was a text book hit. This doesn't go unnoticed by officials.

Is it consistent not really but neither are many calls in hockey.
