It was more of a hockey play then the Eberle hit. It looked like he was taking a run on that hit, whereas on Seabrook he was doing what he should be doing; checking the guy behind the net who has the puck. It never ceases to amaze me how NHL talent skates around staring at their feet all the time. KEEP YOUR DAMN HEAD UP!
Jeezus, the Canadiens sure made a game of it at the end. I would have loved it if the only two Canadian teams both had a strangle hold in their series; i had a dream the other night about and Canucks vs. Canadians final series...how cool would that be.
I didn't mind the Ducks franchise when they were "Mighty", and when they had the same logo from the movies. Lets be real, the only thing less scary then a duck is a maple leaf (if I knew what a Red Wing was in reference to it might be as well); when they were "Mighty" it just barely scraped by as a suitable team name, but just plain Ducks? The only thing mildly frightening about a duck is the water-born skin irritation that bears its name.
Sadly, I think the answer is no. They will give Lu the start anyway, but goddamn if Schneider doesn't deserve the shot!
Exactly my thoughts. Schneider definitely deserves the shot, but there is no chance of that happening. Luongo will start for sure, if he shits the bed again however, it will make the scenario more interesting.
They played extremely well tonight. Schneider proved he isn't playoff ready when it comes to handling the puck. The refs proved which currency they're paid in. So many non-calls, 2 handed slashes from Bolland, interference behind the net on Bieksa extremely similar to the Seabrook hit. It was a rough one tonight, but if they play like that in game 7 I think we got this one.
