uninspired hockey right now for about 20 of 30 games in this season including tonight, making so so goalies look like George Vezina except for Buffalo's goalies

Maybe the thinking is, we played so well last game and came up short, if we play like crap, we'll get a win?

You know, I don't really believe in calling penalties for the sake of giving each team roughly the same amount of opportunities, but there has been nothing that either team has done to warrant a 5-to-1 disparity.

I haven't thought Reaves has played poorly for the most part. He doesn't do a whole lot, but his impact hasn't really been overly negative like people like to think.

Letang with another assist. One away from the league lead

And nice goal by Sheahan. May have scored with Halsk in position

I guess we got our only 2 power plays. When you go 2 for 2 that's all you get.

In a special teams game, he won’t get much ice time

Up two late, two for two on the power play, and Sid complained to the refs earlier about getting clubbed in the head washes out the most obvious call of the game.

NHL rules: Slashing - Slashing is the act of a player swinging his stick at an
opponent, whether contact is made or not. Non-aggressive stick
contact to the pant or front of the shin pads, should not be penalized
as slashing. Any forceful or powerful chop with the stick on an
opponent’s body, the opponent’s stick, or on or near the opponent’s
hands that, in the judgment of the Referee, is not an attempt to play
the puck, shall be penalized as slashing

Refs interpretation: Slashing - Slashing is the act of a player swinging his stick......squirrel
