Man, still salty the next day that the Devils only got one point in STL last night. Go ahead goal overturned in the third and then a couple chances where I don't know how they didn't go in late in the third and in OT. Knew we'd lose if it went to a shootout.

Couple great saves  :lol     It was a good game. Blues could have came out of the 1st period up 3-0 if not for a post and a crossbar.....then the second and third it was pretty much back and forth with good action both ways.
 And despite the offside's call going for the Blues I'd still be ticked if that happened to my team. IMO that play isn't why the replay use was put into place. I mean, his skate 'technically' was off the ice so that's why he was offside but they have to amend that rule to have the Blue line project upwards or something because something like that call last night shouldn't happen.

Yeah, the blue line should be measured vertically as well, not just on the ice.  That would solve a lot of these challenge problems.

Yeah, I only caught the third period and beyond but it was plenty entertaining. This is I think the second straight game where we had a go-ahead goal in the third overturned on a *very* close offsides. If not two in a row than two out of three.

It is nice though just to have a reason to be annoyed at games halfway into the year, definitely overall gone way better than I would have expected.

I mean, if 'we' here have been saying this for two years now....you'd have to imagine it's been brought up at meetings or something? Why wouldn't you change it? What's the downside?

Just found this thread...

I'm way stoked at how my Kings are playing.  Much better than expected.  While I loved Darryl Sutter's approach that brought us two Cups in three years, it's awesome to see the team loosened up offensively, and the team is still ranked first in goals against and PK%.  Even better, Kopitar, Brown, Doughty and Quick are playing like they're on a mission.  Gaborik has come back strong from his injury, and the new kids -- especially Adrian Kempe -- are contributing and playing smart hockey.  I'm really looking forward to what happens when Jeff Carter comes back and the playoffs start.  More brutal series against San Jose and Anaheim...

And Vegas??  WTF?  I had that franchise pegged as a failure right out of the box, but someone must have made a pact with Satan.  Their coach and GM are shoe-ins for postseason hardware unless things change dramatically.

With Vegas I also wonder what an early season losing skid, as opposed to such a strong start would have made for the franchise. With losses, especially with the excess of players you could see a lot of changes and experimenting, which could have further hurt things. But they started strong and have never looked back.

Yep, all of the above, this.  I concur.

The Pacific Division is already a tough division with the three California teams mainly front and center and teams like Flames and Oilers do not like seem like punching bags of the past (well, for the most part).  Vegas being really good so far this season makes this division really competitive.

I'm just glad the Kings are in the thick of it (unlike last year).  Now they just need some good decisive wins (i.e. in regulation wins) over Golden Knights in the remaining games against them and maintain playing good hockey, and everything should be all right.

Ugh... Leafs are into their old habits of blowing 3rd period leads - 2nd time this season to the Flyers, and 3 out of their last 4 games (and the 4th, they gave up the winning goal with <3 mins to go.  Lots of offensive slumps - Kadri has 1 point in his last 18 games (and truthfully, I thought that was a goal that should've been called back).  Hopefully this is just January blues.  Anderson is the only reason they've snuck away with a couple of OTL points.  Dude is regularly called on to make god-tier saves.

Thankfully, the rest of the Atlantic is so shyte, it would take a monumental slump to put the playoff position at risk.

Really nice tribute to Lindross last night.  Man that guy was fun to watch play.  One of my fave players from the 90s.  For a guy that had never played an NHL game, he was a beast in the '91 Canada Cup.

They've got a point in the last 17 games.  Crazy!

Except for the fact it's Molson Canadian (Canada's version of Coors Light), that's awesome.  Would've been better with the stubby neck bottle.

HOCKEY DAY IN CANADA today!!!!

Molson makes Coors Light in Canada, so that's not quite right.  And Canadian is 5% instead of 4%. Still garbage though, so I'm just arguing semantics here
