Eh, not really. Not saying I don't think this should have been at least a game, but I don't think the hits were that similar.so basically the same as the Backes play, with the opposite result?

Well that's official then. I want no part of Toronto in the first round. Let someone else lose two games because of questionable calls coming form the command center.Word is that the NHL Board of Governors approved the rule change for goalie interference. The situation room has the final call starting Wednesday.
At what point are we allowed to have a persecution complex? The freaking guy was playing left D and came steaming over to the right corner explicitly to slam a guy while leaving his feet. You have to consider the circumstances and with a couple of seconds left he knew he could abandon his position and take liberties. Even if Gyzelcyk didn't turn, it was clearly charging with intent to injure. This was 1000X less a hockey play than the Backes hit. If I was Neely, I'd be on a plane right now on my way to Parros office. Teams are going to figure out they can go after Boston.The Winnipeg Sun is reporting no discipline for Morrissey. NHL told them via email.
So yeah, fuck us.
At first glance I thought this was a legitmate story and I was like WTF...It's kinda sad that a satire like this article could be written and yet be beliveable. Such is the sad state of affairs at the DOPS.
Did Scheifele even hit the boards after Brad made contact with him? I remember a follow-through hit that simply dumped (cleanly) Scheifele on the ice by the goal line - never making contact with the boards at all...Watching the Morrisey hit in slow motion a bunch of times, I just don't think it's inconsistent for it to not be a suspension. It was reckless and the type of hit that should be 5 for general recklessness, even though it's objectively not a board or a charge or a hit to the head. I don't want that hit in the game, but I can't quantify why it was bad without covering a lot of ordinary hits that happen every game.
Morrisey comes down hard into the slot for a shot opportunity, sees the puck in the corner and goes and chases it, then looks as clumsy as you would expect a defenseman to look forechecking. He half poke checks half plays the body, and when Grz isn't where he expects, he's too out of control to do anything and just plows right through him. He did not leave his feet until he was riding up on Grz.
I think the Schenn/Krejci and Hornqvist/McAvoy hits were significantly worse.
Also, Marchand proper boarded Scheifele there, but eye for an eye, it was as bad as Scheifele's hit on Pasta earlier. Hope he's ok.
You think a hit in the chest, in front of the goal line causing a player to slide into the boards is boarding? What are you talking about?Also, Marchand proper boarded Scheifele there, but eye for an eye, it was as bad as Scheifele's hit on Pasta earlier. Hope he's ok.
He's slow to get up because he got popped in the chest by Marchand a few feet away form the boards, so it caused an awkward fall into the boards.Did Scheifele even hit the boards after Brad made contact with him?

Actually, what's really cool is that Foster was the emergency backup for BOTH teams. NHL rules state someone has to be in building that can dress for either team in case of emergency.Interesting rule I hadn’t heard of until last night- apparently the NHL allows teams to warm up a goalie if they aren’t on the bench. The Blackhawks kept Foster in the dressing room for this very reason, and he was able to get a few shots to warm up prior to the game resuming.
