Yeah, hard to pick one here.

I'm going Andersen for MOTM - he was good when he needed to be.
HM: Rielly.

But what he did last night against Montreal?  He was a literal freight train going to the net.

No.
Martin goes to the net, Matthews and Marner do their thing... and it was in the back of the net.

I think the issue is the word "literal."  Like - he didn't actually turn into a freight train a la Transformers.  He was a figurative freight train.

Like ZBBM, it's the HM that's the most difficult

MotM: Andersen
HM:  Matthews.  Marner was good too, but also had a couple bad giveaways in the first 2 periods.

Speaking of Smallville, did y'all hear about Allison Mack?

I didn't, so I did a quick Google search, and....wow.  Wow.

What I remember from DC comics is that there aren't that many compelling villains at the JL level that take place on Earth, other than a Darkseid invasion or maybe Brainiac.

The one super interesting JL story I can recall is the Tower of Babel arc, made into an animated film: Justice League: Doom. Their animation wing is waaaaay better at story telling.

Yeah, I was thinking Brainiac was the obvious go-to there. I mean they've done almost 10 Superman movies and he hasn't shown up so you should use him eventually.

But I think the key word you use there is "compelling". DC is working with a lot less good source material than Marvel is.

I could be wrong, since it's been a while, but Brianiac was the principal villain for a season on Smallville, wasn't he?

How accurate the show was to the comics, though, is a completely other story.

MotM: McBackup
HM: Komarov

How are these types of penalties harder to kill off?

They cause -2 speed for all players on the board.

Also a -5 to team morale (30 seconds).

But can Leo Komarov cast Bardic Inspiration when on the PK?

8
Replacing all the bad players with good players probably helped too.

Natch.

BUT did we replace them all yet? Why did we then add some more bad players?

They added good bad players, not bad bad players.

Bad, Bad, Connor Brown?

Ditto to Rielly, HM: Kadri

10
Kapanen apparently slotting in with Kadri and Komarov.

Andersen
HM: Matthews

...but the true MotM are those of us who stayed up to watch the entire game. :S

Is it me, or is the lighting...off?

Is there anything in the rulebook that specifically states what is allowed in a hockey "fight"? I don't really think that there is, which opens the door to a lot of interesting possibilities. I want to see someone get Rock-Bottom'd.

I can't remember who it was, but there was an issue a couple years ago when an NHL enforcer whose "strikes" were MMA style forearms/elbows in his fights, and a lot of other players were taking exception to it.  So I suppose it's one of those things where there aren't any particular set of rules, but there is a "code" that people follow.

Bieksa "super man punch"... really? Reminds me of Achillies in that movie Troy when jump stabs the big guy.

This just solidifies how ridiculous staged NHL fighting is. Suspend these clowns for staged fighting.

As the board's resident wrestling nerd, the "Superman Punch" is the signature of move of (extremely lame) wrestler Roman Reigns.



That's why it's called that.  *adjusts glasses*

Just got home from the ACC, fun game to watch.  And I can't believe I'm going to say this:

MotM: Martin
HM: Marner

I kinda wished that Marner goal was allowed for Martin to have the Gordie Howe hatty. :P
