Official GDT: Pens @ Devils 11/13/18

Postby DelPen on Tue Nov 13, 2018 6:29 pm

DeSmith gets the start. Oleksiak back in for Riikkla. Boyle expected to miss the game for the Devils.

DeSmith has a .942 save % vs Murray’s .886. I don’t even care too much about GAA as that’s more a team defense stat but save % is a solid indicator of individual performance.

DeSmith is getting the job done. Murray has not.

Debs lost 6 of 7. Who'd they beat?

Sid's line gets bottled up and it doesn't end well.

Stellar defense there. Simon and Johnson on the ice together seems like a bad idea.

Feel free to whack away DeSmith's glove. There will be no consequences.

Two guys looking at the puck, two guys bumping the goalie and a couple sticks whacking him when he was trying to cover.

Lots of spectators and an inability to clear the puck. Not a good look.

He had 2-3 completely uncontested chances to cover a puck with his glove that was literally sitting on his pads. Were his eyes closed?

The only good thing about this Guentzel slump is it’s a contract year.

Fluke bounce into his pads and no one covering guys going to the net. That was awful defense.

They probably assumed he was capable of putting his glove on top of a puck that was at his feet an not moving. I would too.

When the other guys are skating circles around you penalties will happen.

I don't know any coach that tells their players that it's okay to release the guys they're covering in that situation. If someone in white were within three feet of him they could have lifted the stick or cleared the puck. Can't lay that all on DeSmith. Sid left his man after the faceoff. Terrible defense.

The old stationary power play. Always successful.

Interesting strategy having Sid play behind the net on the PP.

Is it just me or does Cullen get tossed out 50% of the time?
