SCC and Catherine's NHL Out of Town Scoreboard

Recommended Posts

The Sabres didn't deserve to win that game...Miller did. Well, maybe that's harsh, but that game should have never gone to OT or a shootout. They played a good first period and then it was just nothing. They weren't generating any offense whatsoever.

Campbell's goal was beautiful, it was right in our end and I saw it perfectly. Miller stood on his head and saved 36 out of 39 shots (to Weekes' 16 out of 19) and was a brick wall in the shootout. He was pissed after that Teppo penalty at the end of overtime, I've never seen him get so angry before about a call, or at least not in person. But it almost put me more at ease (is that weird?) because whenever he's really mad he's pretty much unbeatable it seems.

Oh well, at least my two favorite players played well. haha It was an exciting game thankfully.

Neither Jagr not Straka took part in the shootout, which was pretty strange. Apparantly Jagr just didn't shoot because he's not fully comfortably on breakaways yet, which I still think is weird, because it seems like you might just throw him in there regardless because I don't know...he's Jagr. haha But Straka apparantly left early from what heard afterwards, but I don't know what happened to him, I haven't checked up on it yet.

Maaaaan.. 2-0 Laffs right now.. end of the 1st period.

Habs got like.. 2 shots on goal? Pathetic.

Highlight of the first period- wicked saves by Cristobal (minus those 2 goals) and Bouillion knocked down a Leaf and was checked into the boards by Tucker.. and he didn't take it real well. He smashed his fist into Tuckers face and he was bleeding all over the place.. fantastic. Komisarek also touched Steen and he almost feel backwards :lol: fantastic.. I hope to see a few fights tonight.. god how I love the physical aspect of hockey :P

Habs powerplay is the exact definition of a mess.

Haha, I looked at the score for the Sabres game.. 2-0..

I flipped back during a commercial break in the Habs game and the score is 3-0..

I check the scores on NHL.com at the end of the period of the Habs game and the score is 4-1 haha

Well, on the other hand, you'll be glad to hear the Canadiens really stepped up their game in the 2nd.. the completely dominated. Perezhogin with a goal to make it 2-1, Leafs, but I have a feeling that will soon change :D

Bouillion is earning ALOT of cool points with me tonight.. he's hitting Leafs like it's nothing and I'm loving it!

Well, I'm not answering anything about Ovechkin because I didn't see that..

but.. the Canadiens from back from being down 2-0 to win it in the shootout, thanks to goals by Kovalev and Sheldon Souray =] Faaaaaaantastic! It was an awesome game. The Habs really picked up their game in the 2nd and 3rd and they played great, they deserved the win!

he almost killed danny!!!! danny was getting off the ice, door was open, he was stepping off...and AO came from behind, and knocked him head first into the boards!! with dannys helmet off!! omfg...he could have broke his neck!!

goose came over, and beat the s--t outta him, and mair completely slaughtered some other guy (didnt catch who it was) and mair and goose got tossed...i think AO got tossed...he better be suspended!!!

i started crying when i say Danny lying on the ice...i seriously thought he broke his neck...Dannys a fighter though, he game back, and it looks like he'll be ok.

AO is gross...i lost ALL respect for him

Gee, for an "almost dead" guy, he looks kinda lively.

Crap happens. Like when that Devils guy cut his face open on the glass or that Sabres guy hit the bench gate just as it opened and nearly killed himself.

If Danny's ok, it's kind of a non-issue.

You call that a HIT?

He BUMPED HIM! Briere's own idiot teammate should get a suspension for opening the gate as his captain hit the boards!

That's dumb luck and it sucks, but that was not an offense that deserves a suspension. He shoved him from behind, yeah. That deserves a penalty. But that really wasn't much of a hit.

If they hadn't been opening the gate at the same time, he'd have been fine.

Yup, Danny is fine, he didn't even miss a shift. It looked awful though, when he finally got up he looked really out of it, but by the time everything was all sorted out he was ok, thankfully.

Ovechkin...jesus. He was one of my favorite players, but I don't know anymore. What a stupid stupid cheap shot. Briere's ok, so it's not like it's a big issue right now, and it's like it was the dirtiest shot in the history of hockey, but man...how stupid. The next time the Caps come here should be interesting.

Miller got pulled after he let in 3 goals in 7 minutes, I don't know if Melissa said that. I was surprised he was even starting, since it was a back to back games. The highlight of the game (there wasn't that much else) was seeing Miller yell a bunch of obscenities during all of that nonsense. When Ovechkin was being escorted off the ice, they cut to Miller and he definitely directed a very clear, "PIECE OF S***!" at him. I must say that I laughed.

What an insane messed up game, way to not show up guys. Then Sabres didn't even have any players...they started the game with 5 d-men dressed because Spacek hurt his foot blocking a shot, then Mair and Gaustad got kicked out, then Peters wasn't playing because, well, he's Peters, and there goes that whole line. How ridiculous.

Oh, and Max got into a fight too at the very end with only a few seconds left!

I was switching back to the Habs game, it looked intense. Unfortunately I missed the entire shootout, I switched back right when it ended, but I saw the highlights at least. I liked when Koivu threw his stick up to those guys when he went into the tunnel, how awesome.

There was a very likely chance that he could have gotten hurt from 'that shove from behind' luckily, he did not, but it certainly could have happened. A broken neck from a shove from behind doesn't deserve the 15 minutes Ovechkin was given?

In my opinion, it does. I'm very happy Briere wasn't injured.

The hit looked dirty, but I honestly believe AO didn't realize what he had done. This hit wouldn't have been that such a big deal if the door to the bench hadn't opened after the hit.

It's a good thing that Briere's ok though.

Yeah, honestly, I don't think he should be suspended exactly, BUT, you don't hit a guy from behind like that when he's getting off the ice. It was a stupid thing for Ovechkin to do and he knows it.

What? Pointing out that yeah it's a penalty but AO's not trying to kill Briere? I don't like AO, I don't like Briere. I'm unbiased in that area. Briere probably wouldn't have been hurt at all if they didn't open the gate as he sailed in.

Maybe bruised.

Unless AO has a freakin crystal ball, he can't know that, 1: Briere will take that flight path, or 2: Briere's idiot teammate will open the gate in time for the boards to meet Briere's face. That is what falls into the category of "unfortunate accident".

AO shouldn't have hit him. But he didn't hit him that hard. He got a major, he got tossed, it'll be reviewed on Monday.

When they review it, they'll probably take into account that Briere was not seriously hurt, the injury that Briere did sustain was not entirely AO's fault, and take into account that Briere returned to the game seemingly none the worse for wear, as evidenced by Briere's 2 subsequent hooking penalties, the first not ten minutes after he was "nearly killed".

You're kidding, right? I think those years of rooting for the Flyers have addled your brain. I saw that hit, and the first thing that came to mind was "That's almost exactly what Orpik did to Cole." He shouldered Briere from behind, into the boards. If anything, the fact that the door was being opened saved Briere. That angle deflected the blow slightly, and made a headache out of what could have been paralysis. It was a deliberate, dirty play and not only did Ovechkin deserve the *edit*-kicking he got, he deserves a suspension as well.

i think he should be suspended...one or 2 games. he got tossed from the rest of that game, and i think he should get at least 1 more.

i actually would like it to be like 5 games, but theyll consider the fact that danny didnt miss his next shif...but ill be VERY upset if the nhl doesnt do anything about this.

It would have been a glancing blow had the gate not been open and caught Briere's head. That could have hurt him far worse.

Brooks Orpik only got a 3 game suspension AND HE DID break Erik Cole's neck. Briere is ok (thankfully), and while the boarding call was appropriate, OV would have had no way of knowing that the door was opening at that time. And that probably did save him from more injury.

Some of the posters on your board say that Erik Cole deserved it and it was his own fault for turning. I've read some even say they hope that next time his neck does break and finish the job. Its interesting how when something similar(although not to the same extreme) happens to a Sabre, everyone's screaming for justice. Just an observation.
