Oh good, looks like Gudas got himself injured too. Only played 6:20 so far this game.

Edit: Jup, upper-body injury reported. Will not return to this game.

Thankfully Coots returned but it had me a bit scared when I saw it this morning.
Glad we won. With the fact that the total number of NHL games played for our defense before this game was 272, shutout was really the only way. Hopefully we can get healthy again soon instead of getting even more injuries.

Oh boy, just watched the highlights. Looks like Neuvirth had a terrible game. Our special teams was also trash tier tonight with giving up two PP goals and a shortie. Also, that goal where Ghost let himself get stripped of the puck from behind by Duchene was trash. I guess 1 point is better than no points. Still, fuck the shootout.

Hagg is getting more and more confident with each game. Fun to watch. He hasn't gotten much press the last couple of years, and almost certainly will not put up flashy numbers ... but if this first month+ of the season is any indication of what we have/will get, then our defense is going to be ungodly good potentially.

Even if hagg tops out as steady #4 who lets his partner (ghost? Sanheim? Someone of that ilk) freelance against second and third lines, that's a massive win. I'd even be happy if he's "only" a very good third pairing guy

Edit: and to jester's point, were now right around the part of the season where provy took off last year, and it looks like we're seeing a similar timeline with both hagg and sanheim this year

if he got 6-8 games I would not mind. maybe he would finally stop being so fucking stupid.

SiriusXM NHL absolutely KILLED Gudas today, all hosts on all programs. They almost all believe he's a moron and can't stop being a moron to RP's point and the ex players who are broadcasters seem to agree he should be out of the game.

What's scary about Gudas is he is a big/strong guy out there so when he loses it he's very dangerous.

Well... ex-players not named Scott Stevens.

And despite the hyperbole, Gudas is no Byfuglien. He's 6'0" and maybe 210 lbs. Granted, he's a reckless idiot, but large, and a sociopath he is not.



By the way, I am in no way abandoning Gudas. A blue-line with Gudas and Morin on it will absolutely keep other teams' skaters on their asses. And if they're on their asses, they're not scoring on me.

That's not the point I was making. Stevens, at least in that clip, seemed to genuinely appreciate the game Gudas plays which is the same game he played in Tampa.

Ghost must have shit in the refs breakfast this morning. Definitely got him up high though glad he wasn't lippy there.

Bad break there. I still hate to see goals scored when someone is hurt on the ice.

And chaos it isn't really a 2nd line goal when Giroux and Voracek assist on it haha.

I didn't say "2nd line goal". I said "2nd line forward". None of them have been able to put the puck in the net as of late. One of them picking up a goal is definitely a good thing, regardless of circumstance.



Also, fuck these refs with a rusty shovel. First that complete horseshit call against Voracek in the first, then Giroux gets boarded recklessly just so there is no call and not 20 seconds later we pick up a penalty, a great chance gets negated (though that was legit), they put a guy in the box for absolutely nothing, and finally they don't blow a whistle on Leier getting his nuts shot off and the Flames score on the PP right after. Leier was in clear medical distress and went down like a sack of potatoes. Just fucking irresponsible to not blow the whistle there.

Honestly I feel bad for Elliott. 3 powerplay goals, a breakaway, and a back door odd man rush. The rest of the team wasn't giving him much to work with.

Factor in the two 1-goal games against the Wild, he can't seem to catch a break.
