Always fun to see the Leafs win after getting jobbed by the stripes.

Rules should also try to minimize people having to make judgement calls on intention. Just call every penalty with less than 2 min remaining in OT as an auto penalty shot. Avoids more shootouts. Refs will stow their whistles anyway on most contact plays but delay of game infractions and bench minors are pretty cut and dry.

Another grievance


You can pause that video and then click through it

Rempe's head and body start upward considerably before he made contact - showing that he was sort of jumping into the hit - moving upwards - that the hit didn't exclusively make him go up because he was already moving upwards  before he made contact
Both skates look off the ice before he made contact
Unlike Rielly's crosscheck, he injured Lyubushkin

Where were the refs and where is the league discipline on this?

It's the Leafs so they don't care.

It was during play so they don't care.
I saw the replay, but I still didn't see the puck go in..

Quote from: Dappleganger on February 28, 2024, 02:46:12 PMNo, no, no. Don't you guys do that. If anyone remembers the NHL with the old 5-on-5 overtime/no loser point, you'll recall the with about 5 minutes left in a tie game both teams would essentially stop playing trying to secure the single point. Too often the overtime would be both teams trying not to get scored on. It was a problem and the NHL was right to make a change to try to correct it.

Now, the changes they made do I agree with? Not exactly, but the game had a problem.
The NHL PR spin of "people don't like ties" was just cuz they didn't want to say, "cuz teams stop playing".

You mean when there were ties and the loser point I think right? With no loser point, losing with 1 min left in the third and losing with 1 min left in OT are the same. Maybe they stop playing late in OT though.

I like ties, I don't like loser points.
Puck luck be gone tonight. Oh well.
Leafs will score 4, all by lefties!

I don't watch these often, but does every team but the Leafs get homer announcers? These guys are fans way before media types. I would love that for the Leafs TV broadcasts. Sometimes I turn Bowen up and watch the game, but it's annoying to line up the radio audio with the video.
Third period has not been the best so far.
I know Vegas is down a couple, but they are impressive tonight.
This is not what I expected. I like it.
Run it up, let me go to bed, boys.
This chunk is looking good.
