They talked a lot about Marty last night, but it was a lot of good stuff, so I actually give credit to them. Other than that, they did mention attendance quite a few times. They said the arena was pretty packed and it was the most Devils fans they've seen at a Penguins - Devs game and I was like WTF? It's a sellout, the arena is full, don't act like there's 16,000 in there and talk like you've never seen a sellout at the Rock against the Pens, because it happens more often than not, I believe. :unsure:

I watched the game today and boy, it looked great. :) The jerseys, the atmosphere, the game itself... I can only imagine being there and getting to actually experience it. :)


All three Pens games @NJ have been sellouts this year. Only 2 of the 3 games @PIT have been sellouts.

Took a friend to the game last night, who never even watched a hockey game. She is a huge fan now!! Guessing the Jersey helped a little there. Now she wants a Parise jersey, and a picture with him. Hmmm she will be a hardcore fan soon! :)

Yea, the Pelley call was legit, but Letang only getting a roughing minor from what ensued after the hit was possibly the most beyond absurd non call I've seen in an NHL game, minus Pandolfo getting drilled from behind in Detroit.

Letang literally skated all the way across the ice, dropped his gloves and jumped Pelley. Granted, Pelley made him pay for it, but instigating a fight in the third period and only getting a roughing minor?? Give me a break. This is the exact reason I have no respect for NHL officials.


If I remember correctly, you don't get an instigator if you start a fight with someone who just committed a major penalty. Maybe it is you don't get an extra 10. being that is was throw back night, I may be remembering a rule that is almost 20 years old as well.

I do agree with your point about the refs. I have always felt that the officiating is the reason why hockey will always be the least popular of the major sports.

Other sports have just as many problems with officiating as the NHL has. Officiating is a hard job to do properly. Hell, the NBA had a ref cheating on games, if officiating is a reason people tune in or out of a sport then the NBA would have nobody watching.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Pretty obvious instigator...

47.11 Instigator - An instigator of an altercation shall be a player or goalkeeper who by his actions or demeanor demonstrates any/some of the following criteria: distance traveled; gloves off first; first punch thrown; menacing attitude or posture; verbal instigation or threats; conduct in retaliation to a prior game (or season) incident; obvious retribution for a previous incident in the game or season.


That becomes a really confusing situation...

Letang gets 2+5+10 for fighting and instigator

Pelley gets 5+5 for boarding and fighting

I think what happens then is both teams have to put an extra guy in the box... Someone to serve Letang's 2, and someone to serve one of Pelley's majors. Both Letang and Pelley would be done for the game at that point since they have to sit for the full penalty time, 17 for Letang and 10 for Pelley.
