Brutal road trip. Two back to back sets and two time zones after All Star week festivities just rough. Before the trip it was talked about they this would be the toughest road trip of the year. Playing (4) teams that are fighting for spots. Oh well. Not to a level of worry but itíd be nice to have a player who could bury the puck. Too many wasted chances.

Stumbled upon this clip in today's battle of Alberta.  We got ourselves a goalie fight.  Naturally, it happens at a point where a team is losing badly.

Surprised to hear that was the first ever goalie fight between Cgy/Edm.

Yep, rough week for the Blues post-All Star break, but it's a long season. I would rather hit a rough patch now than in April.

Agreed.  That's what I kept saying about the Leafs' funk to start the season.... and when they entered the break/bye-week at 1-3-3.  Better to get a break when the team is in a funk, as opposed to being on a heater (like Florida... 8-2 with W6 streak) - then they come out and get blanked by MONTREAL!  :omg:

Jay Boumeester just collapsed on the Blues bench while playing at Anaheim. Theyíve sent the players to the locker rooms and itís just delayed right now? They showed a replay and you can see him on the bench just kind of lose consciousness and collapse. But no word as to what happened.

So scary.

Yikes!

Just flicked on NHL Network. This looks fucking serious.

Game is postponed.
That is not good...


Apparently the St Louis' Dads are on this trip, and Jay's father is there..

Probably because from the sounds of it, one of the players had cardiac arrest on the bench and it shook the players to see their teammate and friend almost die on the bench? I donít know, I donít think Iíd be in the mood to compete, but thatís just me.

And I think at that point too, the crowd isnít into it anymore. It wouldnít be a very fun game to watch, and this took place with just under 10 minutes or so to play in the first. Thatís a lot of game left. Itís all for the best

I remember when that happened to Jiri Fischer during a Red Wings/Predators game back in the 2005-06 season.  He was out for about 6 minutes.  They postponed that game as well.  Scary stuff, man.  Hope Bouwmeester's okay!

That was freaky...Pietrangelo's reaction as he skated over to the bench and another guy on the bench frantically waving for the trainer/doctor.  He's at a hospital right up the street from my office.  Looks like the most recent news is "alert and undergoing tests after cardiac episode."  Damn....

Update I got at 12:37am this morning from the TSN app was "Bouwmeester had "cardiac episode" on the bench and was stabilized by the medical staff.  He was awake and alert and moving his arms and legs as he was transported to hospital."

Haven't seen any news on it today though.

Bruce Boudreau out in Minnesota.

Well, now's a good time than any other time to plug this video showing this guy's shortcomings coaching in the playoffs coaching in various teams.  So many times his team lost when leading 3-2 in a playoff series.  On another note, the guy that created this video also has a legacy of failure for teams like the Capitals, the Blues, Andy Reid, and the Washington Nationals.  Teams had won a championship a few years after the guy created the video.  He also did one from the Sharks and thankfully, the Sharks are far away from a playoff spot for now that, at least, we can still laugh at them for their shortcomings.  Thank goodness for that.

The instant I saw the video of Kassian kicking the Tampa D, I said to jingle.daughter "that should be a 6-8 game suspension".

Nailed it.

Leafs have back-to-back against Ottawa and Buffalo.  If they don't dominate I'm going to be pissed.  If they don't get 2 regular-time wins, it will further my belief that they will not make the playoffs.  The only sliver of hope that I still have is because Florida has shown that they are not performing much better.  Bobs looks absolutely terrible, and is killing the future of UFA goalies.  $10M for the shit he delivers to that team?!?!?

Detroit actually has 32 points.  They are horrible - 99 goal differential, with the next worst team at -44.

Kassian is lucky he didn't get more games; that was a reckless and dangerous act.

Even though they are now in other conference and the rivalry is a thing of the past, I love seeing the Red Wings lose this much.

The Blues need to get it together.  With the exception of one game, they have played like crap since the All-Star break.

Considering there's been 2 VERY scary blade slicing events this year (Leafs Mikheyev on his wrist; Niagara Ice Dogs goalie had his leg sliced almost fatally), that was one of the dumbest things I've seen in years.

Well.  That was a good outdoor game between Kings and Avs.  Interesting setting to host it at a football stadium at the Air Force Academy.  Avs had really good pressure on their forecheck for most of the game and Kings weathered the storm and Toffoli found really good spots and scored the two goals (one of them at the last minute of the game) and the empty net for the hat trick to win it there.

This team is all over the place this season.  Playing crap against good teams, playing crap against teams I feel we should win more on a consistent basis, but then you get this kind of game where they will play decent enough against a good team to actually win it squarely.

I am pretty sure everyone who doesn't love in the New England enjoyed Marchand getting drilled like that after his initial cheap shot.

In other news, the Blues are in deep shit.  They did a great job for a while in surviving the onslaught of injuries that hit them, but it's clear now that the team needs help.  With Jay B. likely not playing again this year (or maybe ever), there is a hole on defense, and they are really missing Tarasenko right now.
