I am a local Alaskan who likes to follow the few Alaska boys in the NHL. Scotty and his dad continue to this day to contribute heavily to youth hockey here and have nothing but gratitude for what they do within the community.
With that being said, I don't understand what is going on with him, he is not back checking at all and will not engage with any player. Plekanec has been working his tail off and derserves to be in Gomez's spot. Gomez is capiable of so much more but he is just nonexistent out there. I don't understand.................
Me neither. Like the end of that MAB penalty kill. He comes out for the last 30 seconds, chases the guy behind the net (for some reason), gets left in the dust, 4 (almost 5) on 3 the other way. Then the puck gets cycled around, he's turning the wrong way every time. Then the puck gets to his point guy, who doesn't handle it overly quickly or cleanly, and Scott doesn't even get his stick in the way of the guy's shot and Carey has to kick a pad out and make a save with a Coyote sitting on the doorstep. Dunno if he's particularly disinterested tonight (heck, everyone seems to be) or if he took a stupid and lazy pill.
edit: And Mara looks particularly slow tonight. Pleks had to cover for him once deep in the zone (left corner, obviously), which caused him to be late getting back out to cover the right point, and the Coyotes got one of their shots so far away hard and clean.
What an awesome exciting game so far, im on the edge of my seat, wow, shots are 7-3 Coyotes....A lot of positives in this period...Way to go Carey, way to go everyone, awesome, way to bounce back from a loss to Calgary, intense, wow. So far our new system is working, wow wow wow.
