Sabres/Rangers Winter Classic. A doozy.
Baseball stadiums work so much better than football stadiums for this. And it looks like they've put the ice further infield than in previous years which will be good for most of the fans in attendance that ever had a shot at a good view.
Brutal shadows. But the game appears very fast, the ice must be like a rock.
Horrendous production from NBC so far.
I think so too and they’re normally really good.
It has been horrendous but it must have something to do with the shadows. There is no good angle.
Very hard to see the puck sometimes in the areas with shadows....
The Sabres really suck.
Oh sweet, the Goo Goo Dolls...
I thought the Rangers would win 6-0 from the first 10 minutes. Sabres turned it around for sure
Interesting observation during that game that both those teams had won only one of their first 10 games this season - the Rangers then proceeded to get their shit together, the Sabres, not so much....
This made my year already.
Love Thornton gesturing for him to take off the facemask and then basically going, "Alright, if that's the way you want it," and then ragdolling him around.
Hate Kadri's game, hate it.
Agreed, and I'd love him on the Bruins
Indeed. Might take me a little while—maybe a 20 goal season would move the needle. I remember Chris Nilan coming "home." I got over that sports enmity pretty well.
Rough weekend in Calgary. First, coach Glen Gulutzan throws a nutty during an open practice, then word leaked tonight that Jagr and the Flames are working out their divorce.
Leafs choke one away late. Up 2-0 with 4 minutes left, lose 3-2 in OT. Tied in points with the Bruins having played 4 more games.
Can someone explain this to me? Patrick Kane scored 1 goal and had 4 assists tonight in Chicago's 8-2 win over Ottawa. How is it possible for his +/- from the game to be -1?
Edit: Never mind, just figured it out. 4 of the 5 goals he was involved in were on the power play, but they don't count against his plus/minus numbers, and he was on the ice for the 2 goals scored against Chicago.
Would love to know if anyone has ever scored 5 points in a game, had their opponent score 2 goals (or 3 or 4) and end up with plus/minus in the negative.
This sounds like it should be called “The Ovechkin”.
Bad rap for Ovechkin. While not a great 2 way player, the 2013/14 season was a total +/- outlier for him and another high quality player Nicklas Backstom. Not sure what Adam Oates had in mind for a system but it sure was a dumpster fire.
All star rosters are out. Marchand is the B's only representative. Because someone from Les Habs had to go, Carey Price is an All-Star, and Tuukka is not.
Asinine that Bergeron was not selected.
Twice in 12 years, what a fucking joke.
I’d rather Bergeron rest. Marchand too. I’d send McAvoy or Pastrnak if we absolutely had to pick 1.
They are 11 man teams and 8 teams in the division need to be represented, so there will be a ton of snubs. Price isn’t playing at an all star level but who the hell else do you send from Montreal? Brendan Gallagher? Hard to get multiple players from one team. The Atlantic is 7 teams sending 1 guy and then 4 Tampa players, where the game is being played.
Anyways, Toronto lost to Ottawa last night so the B’s will come out of the break tied in points with the Leafs and have 5 games in hand.
This is pretty terrible, having to end the season one day later than expected with a back to back game:
The thing about this is I feel this is the year that Bergeron will enter the conversation as a Hart finalist. Admittedly, the focus on the pure counting stats stacks the the deck against him, but he will definitely be in the conversation as long as the Bruins continue their trajectory.
RIFan, I was thinking the same thing the other day about Bergeron and the Hart. I haven't been able to watch as much non-Bruins hockey this season as I have the past few years, but I honestly feel like he is the most important player to his team in the league from what I have seen. Not to mention, it seems like every time on the ice he does something, even little things, that make me giggle out loud, turn to my wife and say, "Man, he is so fucking good."
I'm torn between being pissed that he isn't on the All Star team, and being relieved that he will be able to get some rest that weekend.
Newsflash: Cedric Paquette is a garbage person. A 5-on-3 from that is insane.
No GI on the goal, 4-2 now
The Avs won their 9th straight last night. Flying a bit under the radar, but the are holding down the final wild card spot. Heck of a turnaround, led by MacKinnon who should be a Hart finalist.
Elsewhere in the West, the Blackhawks are drifting. 5 points out of a playoff spot after a 7-3 loss to the Islanders. They might be in trouble especially with Crawford’s injury.
The Vegas Golden Knights have the best record in the NHL.
Not for long, Bruins will catch them by February.
Avs win their 10th straight, 4-2 in Toronto.
Blackhawks have 39 shots, 0 goals against the Lightning. 1-0 TB with 2 minutes to go
And now it's 2-0. Game.
Ottawa being exposed as a bunch of frauds gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
For the Spittin Chiclets fans here...I got a good laugh out of this from Commodore in an exchange with Whitney on the Leafs game last night. Commie’s complete hatred of Mike Babcock is amazing.
Avs finally lost to snap their 10 game win streak. Guess you can't win them all.
Jack Eichel's haircut makes him look like a failed bully from the early 80's in Alabama.
Marchand waves and blows a kiss to the crowd as he gets booed.
This anthem is awful
Is this guy an actual singer or some high school kid trying to be "dramatic" in song? Goodness.
Carl Lewis is off the hook.
That's maybe the worst anthem I've ever heard.
Start the freaking game already.
What the fuck is this camera angle?
The only thing worse than the anthem was?
Only getting one game of Subban makes me sad.
Austin Matthews looks.... uninterested in playing defense.
we're spending this much time on a review in an all star game. This is real life. unreal.
He might be a scumbag, but I’m goddamned glad he’s our scumbag.
