    Orpik goal followed by Reaves stupidity.

    Should’ve gotten his money’s worth there and broken Wilson’s nose

    Reaves beat Wilson to the cross-check.

    That’s not a penalty on Miller. Shut up.

    Eddie O is so brutal. Glad he is healthy but he just sucks as an announcer.

    Looked like a clean check. Oshie needs to keep his head in the game. You've got a two-goal lead, you can't just give up a power play like that.

    This is such an incredible display of the sport.

    It's really too bad Tom Wilson is involved.

    Vegas will look back at not elevating that puck an inch and a half and fucking up that 5 on 3 when Washington is raising the Cup

    I'm not sure this series could have possibly been more entertaining so far. What a show. And the fact that there are probably tons of casual fans falling in love with the sport right now because of Vegas is really, really cool.

    I was wondering that too, but I figured they just wanted him in front clearing space and causing chaos.

    I thought about that immediately when it happened. My first thought was, "Why aren't the Knights celebrating? They just scored..."

    Then I realized it didn't go in.

    Kind of amazing both games ended in similar fashion, with forwards missing wide open nets.

    Maybe I’m just grouchy or something but I think those types of saves are over rated. Desperation reach with the paddle and they get lucky.

    Edit: As an example, the Thomas OT save on Gionta in game 5 of the Habs series that year is more impressive to me than the Downie save above or the Holtby save last night.

    My personal favorite save is the post-to-post kick save on a cross-crease feed. Just takes an absurd amount of athleticism to do that and not die.

    I played goalie at a pretty high level, albeit a long time ago. I can tell you definitively: 90% plus of goalie saves are either luck or because the shooter hits you with the puck, as in, fires it into your chest or something. Admittedly fundamentals, especially puck awareness, angle cutting and correct positioning contribute to the latter. Watch most glove saves. Usually it's shot right into the glove.

    The Holtby save was a bit of both luck and trying to get into position, but mostly luck.

    I loved that save too because of the situation but if you watch it closely, Gionta shot back towards the middle of the net rather than to the near side. Definitely helped Thomas on that one

    Same can be said for the Holtby or Thomas on Downie saves. Tuch had the whole net and shot it right into Holtby’s paddle.

    Didn't get any elevation on it, either -- Downie at least got under it a little bit, and he was aiming it almost perfectly inside the post. Tuch didn't do anything like that. It was a terrible shot.

    That save at the end of game 2 had everyone in the crowd jump and then freeze in their place, waiting for the horn.

    Was really fascinating to be a part of.

    Nooo...he smashed that. He did a great job to get a hold of it so clean; that was a super hard play with the puck skipping across the ice and flipping. Now, I can see that maybe he had enough time to stop it and then go up, but when you see the net that wide open you just hammer it in.



    Edit: I will emphasize that clearly he had the time to stop it dead and then shoot, but a 21/22 year old in the Cup Finals with a wide open net on a weird scramble...that's a tough ask and he did pretty well all things considered.
