Not a good showing, and the sports stations have been hyping the game tomorrow, how'd that work out. Hull and Chelios talking about how disappointed they are in the team and they have no idea why the US had such a poor showing, just flat hockey and never in it.

Disappointed Team North America didn't advance, watching McDavid, Matthews, Eichel, Gaudreau et al was the most entertaining part so far.

While Odull Beckham Jr is have some kind of mental breakdown, fighting and losing to the kicking screen then throwing tantrums on the sidelines .. you have hockey players that are in the penalty box and are still cool enough to photobomb a little fan.

When Brad first came up and was an instigator / pest he was good at it, I never could figure out why they would bench him for playing that game, I guess that's why.... he's actually a hell of a skater, has superior stick handling skills and a nice shot. He was really good in the Cup game recently and I can't believe he didn't get a little MVP chatter, at least some.

Rask on the other hand is still Rask.

So much talent offensively. Wheeler, Schiefle, now Laine and Ehlers, usually good stiff from Perreault. I think the defensive part of your D, and goaltending could be issues in making a playoff run.

John Gibson is really bad. He was ranked so high in preseason, I guess you could say he's a little slow getting out of the starting gate. Lost his first 3, 3.50+GAA and sub .900 save percentage. I wonder if they would trade him for Rask? :lr

In a game a few nights ago, Rask looked really, really uncomfortable every time he had to slide to the left. I think he's hurting a lot more than the B's are letting on.
Subban's definitely not the answer. As weak as the D has been, if they have persistent problems in the net then they're up the creek.

Happy to see some d-fence playing competently ... Klef/larsson make me happy and nurse is growing up into a facsimile of pronger ( he has learned how to start skating it out in order to open up passing lanes ) .

Lucic thinks he is a playa now ... pffft ... got demoted to the 3rd line for thinking he should play instead of beating the sh!t out of kadre .

Overall ... like I said ... it is fun to watch hockey again .

Not sure really how much I put this on Varley. He needs help, meaning needs the boys to find the back of the net. Not to mention the constant mental mistakes that give up the odd man rush or fantastic opportunities.

Both Pickard and Varlamov are doing what they can, but when you're last in the league in goals scored, you're not going to win a lot of games.

Back at it tonight vs Arizona.

Came home, ask the Little One, hey, can you throw the Avs game on... She responds, "the Avs don't play tonight." I'm like yea, like 5 or 6(remember reading/thinking, it's on early, you can catch it in progress when you get home.

Yeah I was shocked that goal didn't get overturned. I was at bowling and the whole alley groaned when they showed the replay. Ha. You could say they owed us one as we have had more than a couple goals taken away by refs this year on bad calls. One of your goals came shortly after that goalie interference call on Coyle that was highly questionable since he was checked into Crawford. They always even out by the end of the year.

Really looking forward to the postseason this year. I think we finally have the depth to contend seriously.

I agree of Julien's talent as a coach. Derrek. But the only thing that's going to make Montreal a true Cup contender is Carey Price returning to his Vezina year form. :2

IF the oilers make the playoffs ... I feel sorry for whoever they play in the first round .

On last nights game ... it has been a long time since I thought the oilers could have been a little less intimidating bullying gratuitously violent ... not sure I fully support this .

Just had to "settle the score" with Manning in their eyes, Derrek. I think the only Oiler who might continue is Lucic, and only because he has played like sh!t all year.

Welllllllll

I was hoping the oilers would be able to remain competitive ( after last weeks game against the Hawks ) into the third period .

Instead ... talbot stood on his head and they managed 2 points from a game they didn't deserve to win .

Dare I hope ... oilers make the playoffs .

Toews is a total world class hockey player ... awesome game in a losing effort ...

3 goals, 2 assists, +5 for Johnny Toews tonight. 9 points in his last 2 games Vs the Wild. He's a beast.

Hawks still with an outside chance to win the Central. I'd prefer to avoid Minnesota and St Louis in the 2st round, let them beat each other up. :r

Your squad outplayed us in all aspects tonight. Not our best effort to say the least. Hope it's a bit of a wake up call for us. Especially with the way the Hawks turn it up a notch in the playoffs. That being said, I'm not at all worried about the Blues. The Hawks are the only team in the west I'm worried about.

The honeymoon will wear off for Yeo.....I didn't dislike him as a coach here, but after watching how Boudreau adjusts and rewards players who are having good games in the game itself I can see why the players here gave up on him. Yeo always stayed with the vets. Even when they weren't playing well. If he does the same thing in St Louis his young players are going to quit on him there too.

Well ... let me start by saying I have been watching hockey on tv for 50 years .

Crosby tonight scored (what I think ) the best all time ... and any hockey fan has to put it in their top 10 ever .

Not a big Crosby fan ... but losing a couple teeth and still playing ... bonus respect points .

I get to watch Mcdavid every night and through the 80's Gretzky every night ... never seen this done before .

If you are left handed ... hold stick in right hand only and raise the puck off the ice ... better yet two guys trying to climb onto you and roof the puck past the goalie .

No Blackhawk or any other hockey player has ever done it that I can remember .

But I digress ... as long as you are a hockey fan ... every thing is alright .

I have to say that was almost like a trick shot goal, don't mean that in a bad way, but he knew what he was doing popping it up and punching it in.
