Blackhawks tie the game on a deflection off a Bruins skate and then win it on a redirect that then bounces off the leg of a Chicago player. How can one team get so farking lucky?

I can't be too upset with a game 1 3XOT loss.

I'm more upset with the B's blowing the lead in the first place.

We should get PJ together with that guy who shiats all over the rest of the sports tab.  They should get a beer.

The part of that goal that surprised me was that it was a redirect - and not from a few tired guys crashing the net on a rush and stuffing in a rebound.

Brutal defeat?

I don't think you can call a loss in a game that is so tight that it is almost twice as long as it should be, brutal.  Eventually you get to the point where just sheer dumb luck is going to win it for one team or the other.

That point usually arrives somewhere around 8 minutes into the second overtime.  These guys fought it out for essentially half a regulation game beyond that point.  In such a game the adjectives such as brutal, convincing, decisive, etc just don't mean a thing.

About the only adjective you can apply to such a game is, exhausting,....

But...Penguins!  The Bruins swept the Penguins and held Crosby and Malkin scoreless.  Are you saying that feat in itself was reward enough?  I don't stay up until an ungodly time and wake up 2 hours later to get smacked down by some weird kind of karma manifesting itself in the form of forward #12 Daugivins having an open net but opting to put the puck on his backhand to sweep it wide!

I ramble when I'm tired.

Ok, now that I have some coffee in me I guess I can discuss this now.

I think "brutal defeat" is more or less a way of saying losing in 3OTs is a tough way to lose. To essentially sit through two games to come to a loss is a brutal way for the game to end. Is it the end of the series, I highly doubt it, but if I said I didn't feel like I took a cockpunch from Mike Tyson after that goal I'd be lying.

This is going to be a hard-fought series, I have a feeling a lot of crazy shiat is going to happen. This is just the foundation.

One of the best hockey games I've seen. Thought the Hawks lost 6 or 7 times in OT.

Also thought they were about to win 3 or 4 times. But I'll take it! Next time though, let's do these double-games on a weekend.

That's a big part of hockey.  You too often can win a game due to blind luck of throwing the puck at the net and it taking weird bounces.

He blamed his teammates for the loss because of a bad turnover and a bad skate placement. That was nice of him.

Luck happens more easily when you keep the puck in your opponents end.

I guess put in that context I can agree with brutal.  The thing is though, going into it everyone KNOWS that someone will win & someone will lose.  This isn't like the silly regular season thing of deciding a team sport by individual skill competitions..... sigh, another argument for another day.  There is no such thing as a tie in the playoffs.

So after essentially two games played back to back nonstop, one team will tiredly sort of celebrate & the other will tiredly sort of grumble but still hold their head up as the coin could have just as easily landed with their side as heads rather than tails.  So I can understand 'brutal' for those that are die hard fans of one particular team & they come up on the losing end, however it would be just as brutal for fans of the other team if things had been slightly different.  For fans of the game itself though, 'brutal' just is inaccurate when used in reference to the game because by most all standards, that was a great game & one that set one hell of an expectation for the series itself.  Brutal for them would be a 12-0 curb stomping of one team over another, fun to watch if you're a fan of the winning team but not so enjoyable for those looking for a good game to watch.

Don't mind me, even with 3 cups of coffee & a big breakfast I'm still in a fog.  At least that 'storm to end all storms, one that will turn your kids belly button inside out, wind that will cause the dog to go bald & scrub your house right off the foundations' that was supposed to arrive yesterday afternoon, then dinner time, well maybe early evening, game time at the absolute latest, no later than midnight - you can bet my pension on that, well it will get here sometime.....' storm finally arrived here this morning.  A nice 5-10 min normal thunderstorm for the season& it blew on through.  However because if finally arrived so late I was able to put off heading in until it was all over with.  Unfortunately that time is now & it's time to go get rid of some used coffee & then hit the road.

Still, brutal or not it was one hell of a game last night....

/I still also like my idea for something similar happening with Game 7
//if game 7 can get through 6 FULL OTs, then the little troll Gary can come out at the start of 7OT & declare the season a tie & both teams get their names on The Cup.  If they can't get it figured out in 9 games with the last three played at the same time back to back to back, then there really is no significant difference between the teams & to declare on the winner & one the loser really would be brutal at that point.
///but it has to be Game 7 that does that

I tend to think that "brutal" would have been giving up the 3-1 lead in the 3rd then losing early in overtime.  The longer the game went, the more time Boston had to "get over" the two-goal lead they'd blown.  Eventually it just turned into a slog that someone had to win.

I was wondering about the goalie question as well. Obviously they aren't sprinting up and down the ice, but the constant vigilance and quick reflexes wear them down jsut the same... would Emery have come in for 4OT? or 10 minutes into 4? 5OT?

In other news, the Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Evgeni Malkin on a long-term deal. The eight-year contract extension is worth US$76 million, carrying an average annual value of $9.5 million. According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the deal involves a no-movement clause as well as $10 million in signing bonuses.

So next year it's going to Sidney Crosby, Malkin, and the rest of the Wheeling Nailers (ECHL affiliate), because even the AHL guys will be too expensive to fit under the cap. I'm not kidding. According to CapGeek they have 6 players under contract for next year.

Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Bennet, Martin, and Fleury and they've already used up $34 million of the $64 million the cap will come down to. It's going to be a long long summer for Ray Shero.

The first 15 minutes of the 3rd period was Stanley Cup hockey at its absolute finest. Even my SO got into it.

"Lucky" goals are part of hockey. Kinda funny to see one guy in this thread acting like no other team ever has scored "lucky" goals. You put the puck on net and hope for the best.

They really missed Campbell last night, and they'll miss Horton even more if he is out for an extended period of time. Don't know if they'll miss Krug's defensive presence though, got to believe Bartkowski will be swapped in for Game 2.

For hating the Hawks, PJ seems to spend more time thinking about them than anyone. No team has ever won the Cup without a big 'ol dose of luck, including Boston. Complaining about puck bounces or deflections is like complaining that it's cloudy.

Both teams had plenty of chances to wrap it up, including that moment in 2OT when the B's player looked like he had an open net and tried to make a move across the crease before losing his handle on the puck.
