Excitinf for sure, and really speaks to how good teams  can step it up in the playoffs and great teams can hit some major bumps.

There's a reason the Stanley Cup is often considered the hardest trophy to win in pro sports.

Are there more OT games in the NHL now with the new OT rules? Is this a carryover from the regular season? It will be interesting to see if this is a trend.

Don't watch much NHL, genuinely curious.

This is the playoffs.  There are no new OT rules here.

Teams generally play a lot harder and there aren't as many bad or non-call penalties* , so the games are tighter and tougher. NHL playoff season is truly the most wonderful time of the year .

* unless Bruins.

Right. I know that. I was asking if there are more OT games in the regular season because the rules changes. Implying that it might be changing how teams play in the regular season (playing for OT) and if that might carry over into the playoffs.

I see my work here is done. Tim Peel is a terrible referee and should be no where near a playoff game.

But, Bruins shot themselves in the first half of that game. They had only 4, rather pedestrian at that, shots on net through the opening 20 minutes. The two solid scoring chances they did have with Marchand and Backes, both flat out missed the net.

Thursday will be interesting to say the least.

In 2012, the first five games of Chicago/Phoenix went to OT. Wikipedia says that was the first time it had happened since the 1951 finals. I don't know if there were series with four games (or best-of-fives with 3 games) that all went to OT.
 
2017-04-18 12:53:37 PM  
I'm still not sure how goaltender interference works after the Chicago v Nashville game. Looked up the rule, read the whole thing, it was still textbook goaltender interference. Not my first rodeo with it either. Lehner cries about it if someone is within five feet of him when a goal is scored.

My biatching about Tim Peel had absolutely nothing to do with the Bruins, was specifically thinking of the gigantic inconsistency that was "call everything in the first two periods, swallow the whistles for the third and both OTs" in Caps/Leafs game 2, but the fact that he screwed up in the Bruins series as well kind of reinforces the point of "fark Tim Peel."

No, no, I'm only disappointed with Calgary.  Can't have a proper battle of Alberta without 'em.

That non-highstick call killed the Flames last night. Really for two games in a row the video reviews screwed them.

But I guess that you can't do anything about it. My only fear is the Laffs winning the Cup. For people in the rest of the country it's a fate worse than death. Because we'd never hear the end of it.

You needn't worry about the Leafs winning the cup this year.  We may well get past the Caps but that will be about it.

As for the review, I agree it was probably am incorrect call on the ice, but to overturn you have to have absolutely conclusive evidence. I didn't see that. Also, the video judges have gotten pretty good at it. High-tech analysis recently proved the Flames goal vs. Tampa in 2004 was not in, and that the correct call was made by the video review team.

Not in my case. The Leafs definitely earned their win in Game 2 (It'd help if the Caps could shoot and play defense in the same period) but the officiating was a joke, purely for how ludicrously inconsistent it was.

Has to be that he was completely outside the crease.  As a Preds fan I was ok with the call.

"Goals should be disallowed only if: (1) an attacking player, either by his positioning or by contact, impairs the goalkeeper's ability to move freely within his crease or defend his goal; or (2) an attacking player initiates intentional or deliberate contact with a goalkeeper, inside or outside of his goal crease. Incidental contact with a goalkeeper will be permitted, and resulting goals allowed, when such contact is initiated outside of the goal crease, provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such contact. The rule will be enforced exclusively in accordance with the on-ice judgement of the Referee(s), but may be subject to a Coach's Challenge (see Rule 78) "

Goals are only disallowed when a goalie is outside his crease if contact is "intentional or deliberate." So in this case, the referees weren't ruling on whether Arvidsson made contact with Crawford, but whether that contact was incidental or intentional. They decided it was incidental .
