Yeah, it's been quite the run for the Canucks. Glad the Wild have missed playing them for the streak.

And then in the following days they publically apologize for not taking the correct course of action.

(and btw, in both cases there was substantial video evidence to support an overturn in a call)

I loved the comeback win for the Canadiens last night! Thora, the Canucks have been doing well. My daughter said there are some guys dressed all in green (fans) who have tickets by the penalty box and they taunt the opposing team. Too funny! That first save by Detroit last night on a shot by one of the Sedin twins was awesome! I loved how he(whatever brother it was) smiled instead of losing his cool! Great sportsmanship!

Yeah, they've done that for a few years now, I think. I rarely notice them any more.

The Sedins are awesome. That was an INCREDIBLE save by Howard on Daniel's shot. I don't think they worry too much about goals going in when the goalie makes a fantastic save like he did last night - they've never been too bothered by stuff like that, as far as I can tell.

Shootouts frustrate me. They're exciting to watch, but they're the Canucks' weakest area right now. Sucks that it had to come down to that, but they got one point, and that's all that matters. I'm just glad there are no shootouts in the playoffs.

Although his save cost my fantasy team a goal.

I did read the situation. I'm with you 100%. I posted the video simply because it illustrates referees casually shaking off big calls as being good because they're "ballsy." Professional sports referees are usually awful when it comes to things like replay because that means they have to admit they're wrong.

I believe the NFL, unless there's an AHL team that missed a shot wide right.

Ah okay gotcha, thought you were pullin my leg there. It's funny, because it gets worse than this.

Dunno if you remember this from last season:



Oh look, there's the puck in the net! No goal!

I'm rather enjoying the new setup of the NHL all-star game. I mean, at first sight it looked pretty stupid, but it's rather ballsy of the NHL to attempt such an unorthodox style of selection. I like it though, it's innovative to say the least.

The only downfall is that there isn't a single Panther on the roster, as the NHL has removed the pity-rule Not to say the Panthers deserved anyone, as this season it's been all contributing players and no stars (and not contributing enough, at that).

There's another unrepesented team, I cant remember who.

But easily the story of the All-Star news, in my opinion, is the fact that Philly is being represented by only 1 player, and I believe that was Claude Giroux. What a joke.

It was Giroux. The big snub was Briere.

Almost as bad as shunning Jose Bautista from the HR Derby in my opinion.

Plus you have other rejects in Pronger, Carter, Timmonen, and Richards. Obviously it gets debatable at that point, but Philly deserves the benefit of the doubt considering they are the most successful team in the East (and again, the pity system was done away with, so why should there be any excuses).

Briere got suspended earlier this year and the guy choosing the team was the disciplinary guy. Even Briere said he thinks that has something to do with it.

But at the end of the day, who really cares about the shitty All-Star Game?

I don't. I prefer players not making the All-Star game because I view All-Star selections simply as a negotiating tool for players.

I always enjoy the young stars game...

but yeah, the NHL all-star game and events are lame anyways. I do enjoy the all-star break in baseball though.

It's funny because the ASG is supposed to be a showcase of the league's best talent, but it's actually probably the worst game of the year because no one hits and no one wants to get hurt.

That and the skills contest are great. I can remember a bunch of skills performances from years past but not much at all from the actual AS game itself.
