Hedman gets cheap-shotted by Lupul. Elbow to the head

It will be interesting to see what Shanny does with this.

Now watch Stamkos get another meaningless late goal.

Has he ever been suspended? Is there a source that tracks suspensions? I bet NHL.com doesn't have such a history.

I'm probably not going to watch much longer, but both Chicago and Anaheim look pretty good so far...this game is being played at a very fast pace.

I don't believe he has been suspended but this is hardly his first questionable hit

EDIT: TSN keeps a transaction history for players including suspensions. Kronwall has not had one. I did get a chuckle out of "Broken Leg- Day to Day" being listed on there twice, It's just a flesh wound

I feel like since the guy he hit wasn't injured it'll be a slap on the wrist at most. Probably a fine.

When I watch a team like the Edmonton Oilers, I really wonder why they're not more successful.

They're fast, young, highly skilled.

I recon it's defense, goaltending and perhaps not enough veteran players sprinkled in?

Ducks and Hawks are two well-oiled machines right now.

Have a hard time seeing anyone other than those two coming out of the west this year.

Their system doesn't use their strengths all that much it seems. They're missing a lot of glue. They aren't men there...it's a bunch of kids basically. They get manned up pretty easily...they lose loose pucks, they lose board battles, they lose positioning in front of the net, the big puck protectors in the West (Getzlaf fends off people, you can't get the puck off of Toews, the Sedin's work along the boards like few others, Kopitar won't give it to you, etc.), they can't get close enough to them to do much of anything effectively.

They have an inexperienced coach that seems to be trying to milk them for all they're worth defensively and trying to create just on transition off turnovers alone and it's having bleh results. Also, they aren't getting the same youthful exuberance from RNH or Eberle this year...everything revolves around Hall and he's kind of like Zach Parise...he just goes, he doesn't stop and ask for directions.

Yeah, the defense and goaltending aren't stellar. But this is a team that should be, as silly as it sounds, getting into track meets with other teams. Instead, they're scoring like the fewest goals in the conference or near it...

Young guys need to learn how to play defense and all...but sometimes players have to go out and learn from their own mistakes. You can't protect them from themselves and get good results either, in my opinion.

I'm shocked they haven't brought in some more vets to fill in around the 3rd and 4th line. Guys who have won a Cup.

I'm also shocked they haven't thrown Horcoff and, to an only slightly lesser extent, Hemsky into the frozen Saskatchewan River.

How good could Colorado have been this year if they didn't mess around with O'Reilly and started the season with him?

They have all #6 d-men and a coach that reminds me of Bruce Arians...he just looks like a gasbag, just a horse's ass...not sure why I get that read, he always looks completely flabbergasted on the bench...Joe Sacco that is.

The Avs should be fined for having so many "O'..." last names on their team.

Looks like Lupul gets a hearing and nothing for Kronwall. Pavel Bure called that one

Some teams schedules look to be rough down the stretch, like Boston, who has 3 more games to fit in than the Pens do.

If the "complainer" loses the challenge: They lose a shootout attempt and the coach is fined $1000, club is fined $5000
If the "complainer" wins the challenge: The shooter in question's attempt is ruled "no goal", he may not participate for the remainder of the shootout, the player is fined $1000, club $5000.


I came across this today on browsing the 12-13 rulebook (http://www.nhl.com/nhl/en/v3/ext/pdfs/2012-13_RuleBook.pdf). Pretty steep penalty for either result, probably why we haven't seen many (if any - I don't recall hearing of any) such challenges. Far steeper than the penalty attached to an illegal stick during normal regulation & overtime play.

Brodeur credited with a goal in their game against the Canes. Jordan Staal put it in his own net when the Devils had a delayed penalty. Brodeur last Devil to touch puck.

Tossing Colton Orr so quickly really quenches my bloodlust for this TOR/BUF game.

One tweet that's pertinent to Devils/Rangers rivalry. Brodeur now has as many power play goals as Rick Nash and Marian Gaborik.

Ouch.
