The Rite of Spring

Recommended Posts

Probably have to see if there's an injury to Zetterberg to make me think a suspension. It was stupid and Weber should no better, but maybe a fine.

And that's the issue with the suspension policy right now. To me, intent is just as bad as actually hurting the guy, and that's how this should be treated. Like Roenick said (and I rarely agree with him), it's like kicking someone.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the NHL been exceptionally cautious and protective over blows to the head the past few seasons?

Naturally, I'm only expecting a slap on the wrist.

Any penalty assessed at 60:00/end of game should be a one-game suspension unless vetoed. If you get called for a penalty in a game that isn't being played anymore, you probably did something really dirty and dumb. Weber did.

It is sad really. We'll see it's interesting.

Trotz said that "Weber got his first" "nothing much there" Whatever that means.

Hey, guys...

Come on, that ain't even close. Far from being the only reason the pens lost this game, but in the playoffs, this is inexcusable.

It means Trotz didn't see it and was taking Weber's word for what happened, IMO. Unless he's got vision problems, which certainly could be the case.

At any rate, I'm not as worried going into game 2 after seeing how Nashville won tonight. Lots of fluky bounces, and Detroit really outplayed them over the course of the game. I just hope Babs will get Nyquist some TOI in this series-- he's been a spark plug for us lately.

Byron Bitz is definitely going to be getting a talking to.

Bitz gets tossed for boarding, LA gets a 5 minute power play. Critical moment if LA wants to steal this one.

Update: Nice screening by Stoll, 2-1 Kings.

Bad calls happen in the NHL every night. The Pens lost because they couldnt hold a three goal lead, the Pens should have responded when it went 3-1, and they didnt. Of all the things that went wrong tonight that offside isnt even on my radar.

And the Canucks tied it just before the horn on a goal that made my wife project expletives toward the entire nation of Canada.

Most of the country, minus British Columbia shouted expletives.

I think Shanahan's explanation of any suspension for Weber should just be, "He slammed the dude's head into the wall once time expired. This is not cool."

Can you imagine the outcry if Weber had hit Crosby in the same manner as he did to Zetterberg? We would be using words right now like "premeditated" or "targeted."

And isnt there a rule that receiving an instigator penalty at the end of a playoff game means an automatic one game suspension? I believe Malkin had one in the cup finals a few years back that was waived off. Because I believe that is what Weber was charged with...

Weber got two for roughing. I think you need a fight to get an instigator. This was just being a dickhole.

Hey, Pancakes scored a late go-ahead goal!

They didn't! Of course Burrows cries after Richards lit him up and spills when he confronts him.

Stanley Cup Playoffs:

Where even a big wasteful lard like Dustin Penner can be a hero.

Amazing. For the 3rd time in four years, the Presidents Trophy winner has ceded control of the series to the #8 seed in Game 1. Like Pittsburgh, big character game for Vancouver on Friday.

The previous 2 times, those Presidents trophy winners have lost.

Tonights games proved why the Stanley Cup playoffs are the best in sports.

This series is going to be damn fun. No one is going to settle for Burrows' crap.

Can't fault BobbyLu tonight, Canucks just played some bad hockey at crucial times in the game.
