This is truly our most important game of the season, I don't think we can come back from 1-3. Marty and Vinny must lead the team tonight (im sure they will!), Stamkos needs to be at his best, the defense must focus, Roloson must make those special saves and every player must give everything they have!
Todd Harvey, Adam Oates and Darren Puppa, you are all missed in the game of hockey!
That might be one of the worst calls of the playoffs. A clean hit by a 5'7 guy... he literally has to throw his arms above his head and jump to get an elbowing call there. Holy christ.
Krejci's head was down as he was turning (not Bergeron's fault).
Bergeron lead the contact with his shoulder (no foul).
Bergeron's elbow extended after the contact was made, the elbow made no contact with Krejci's head during the follow through.
Bergeron's elbow extended merely to keep his balance on the ice, and allow him to begin moving backwards towards the puck.
Bergeron played the puck the entire way, made solid shoulder contact, made no contact to Krejci's head with his elbow, and continued to play the puck afterwards.
It was a ****ing brutal call, yet a textbook open ice hit. Well done MAB, throw another one just like it. Gurantee they don't have the balls to call it again. Too scared to miss a call thats anything even mildly close to the head. Let 'em ****ing play.
We need to win this game, I like the 1:30 start. I'd be a nervous wreck by 8:00 since no work today.
BS call for sure....there's a thread on the B's board, it's damn near unanimous that it was a BS call. We would've been incensed if it was called against us.
There's been some very bizarre officiating around all the playoff games this season, wonder if the game has become too fast for them or if everyone is super sensitive about the concussion issue. Probably a combo of both.
