I don't think Rinaldo did anything dirty at all. Crombeen was on a knee but he wasn't turtling or giving up, he was trying to get back up to fight more. He was fair game in my opinion.

I agree. And actually I was watching after and he must've been mic'd up because they panned to him talking to the refs and he said, "hey listen I really didn't think he was on the ground, I didn't mean to make it look dirty"
The ref just said like no worries you're good.

I think ill have to agree, nothing dirty

Five goals in the second period for Pittsburgh against Washington...Caps now losing 5-1.  Wonder how much longer Adam Oates is going to last...looking like the next John MacLean at this rate...

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

The current downfall of the Caps is depressing, they were one of the most fun teams to watch in the league for years.

Great article about it

Maybe it's because I went to school in Maryland for a year and still have some friends there but I am really enjoying the fall of the Capitals. Most of the people that I knew didn't become Caps fans until they got good again under Ovechkin.

So much for the "for real" Islanders.  Three losses in a row (outscored 11-3), 0-17 on the power play in those games, 5-for-8 on the penalty kill.  They're averaging 3.4 GAPG on the season.

Both Isles and Caps failed to help us. Florida did some of the damage against the Flyers. The east makes me sad tonight besides the Devils win. But the West was a perfect night though because Wild lost 4-1 (Parise -2 tonight) and Kings were blanked 3-0.

Their special teams came back down to earth, it wasnt going to be sustainable, they are not a strong 5 on 5 team...ala 2012 Panthers.

Apparently the Wild fans booed the team after every period tonight. So much for the honeymoon I wonder when Zach starts to get pissy about the booing.

The home crowd, starting to wonder when or if this renovated team is going to
play up to the potential created by the summer signings of Parise and defenceman
Ryan Suter, let out a few boos
as the Wild left the ice at the first intermission. They got louder after the
second period and more pronounced at the final horn.


 

"It's not fun right now. Things aren't going well," Suter said.

Looks like MSG's Ranger analyst John Giannone got hit with a puck last night while reporting from his usual spot between the benches at MSG.

 

http://sports.yahoo....16320--nhl.html

 

I find this funny and ironic as during the Rangers telecast of their game against the Devils the other day, Sam and Joe were whining at one point that Lou doesn't allow anyone to stand between the benches (I am assuming except for if it is an NBC or NBCSN telecast) so they couldn't get reports on whats happening on the Rangers bench.

 

This is why Sam.

I wish he would make Sam and Joe do their play-by-play between the benches so Kovy could rifle a shot at them every period just for fun (bonus to Kovy if he hits one directly).

Hmmm, sounds just like Pittsburgh before Malkin/Crosby...

I have few rules. One of them is to post when a 42-year-old has a 4 point night. Just 14 points in 11 games so far for Teemu.

Wow, has the Blues' goaltending been brutal this season:  .889 for Halak, and .853 (?!) for Elliot.  Doesn't get much worse than that.  21 goals allowed in the last four games...yikes.

Seems like the entire Blues team is doing poorly, but there is certainly precedent for Ken Hitchcock goalies falling off a cliff after ridiculous years (Leclaire and Mason).
