Keith Jones is a moron, not that I didn't know that. Engblom is a tool as well. Jones called it a "good hit" and Engblom said Armstrong "wasn't ready for the severity of that hit."

Do those two idiots realize it was textbook interference? You'd think Army would have his head up for stuff like that, but still.

It's good to be the boss. :) Hey, they lost 5 in a row, someone had to step up and take care of things. A good friend once told me sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you get rained out. Think about that for a while.

I don't think that applies in hockey, but with you being LGP.com's resident lawyer, I'm sure you could find a way to successfully argue it anyhow. :lol:

If Therrien played the correct llaines from the get go it would have been a black and gold massacre. Instead, he waited until 3:30 left even after Staal showed what he could do with linemates whom played his tempo. I am getting really frustrated with these lines.

In that situation, I think Therrien was trying to get his best face-off man on the ice to take a critical defensive zone face-off.

Did Canaan post at all on this game thread? I think the stat of him posting on game threads is 0-3 or something like that....

Yeah, they sure were worthless on that Staal goal.

Actually, Malkin was their best faceoff man overall tonight at 54%. Crosby was second at 48%, but he did take a lot more draws and he was 4/7 in his own end, which was the best.

In situations like that, I think I would have Malkin and Crosby out there. Have the first guy try to anticipate and jump the drop a bit. If he gets tossed out of the circle, you still have a good shot at winning it.

After the hit on Colby, I'd have Roy, Thorburn, Moore, Scuderi, and Melichar out there.

Be very concerned about the Crosby shot being a Collar Bone injury. I was at the game and haven't seen the replay, but that is the biggest broken bone concern about a shot to the chest

I tell you what, Flyers fan shiould be kissing Nitty's rear after that game. Get rid of the 3 easy's that Whitney missed net on, Nitty was tough tonight. We controlled and dictated most of that game and Nitty was pretty tough giving an awful Flyers team a chance.

Despite just scoring 3 goals, I thought this was one of our better games. Offensively, goaltending, defense, PK and PP. the score doesn't show it... but man this game could've been 8-1

They played very well, and for the most part dictated play. My only concern in this game was the lack of finish from guys that need to get going, Colby is my favorite player, but this is getting ridiculous. Whitney had some golden chances too, but I was very happy with his play tonight overall. It could have been a great game for him had he buried at least that last slapshot from the slot.

On the plus side, Jordan Staal absolutely wired that one-timer top shelf. Great goal and I hope that injects him with more confidence, because I thought he was slipping a little before tonight.

Staal is playing alright. He just turned 18 and is getting used to the NHL. It's definitely a different pace of a game and style from Juniors. He seems to be in more of a "not make a mistake" mode right now while he's learning than an aggressive mode and that will change when he gains more confidence. His shot tonight was very much Eric Staal like.

I didn't like him starting off the game on the 4th line so Leclair could play on the 2nd line (especially against a Flyers team that has no defense. Staal and Malkin need games like this together to form some chemistry).

But honestly, Staal is coming along decently. I wish I knew more about Eric's rooking season so I could compare.

I was concerned about his collar bone as well, but the way he got up and slashed one of the Flyers in front of the net was reassuring =)

I'm with you there. Like I've said in 5 threads now I want 71-87-20 and 28-11-8 again.

At the game, I thought he was speared in the mid-section.
Gagne got that shot off with little time and less space.

Hope there is just a bruise and colorful temporary tatoo of puck
on Sid's chest.
