So what ended up being the outcome from O'Reilly regarding his mouth?  I heard no league discipline, but I would hope the team fined him, or he made a donation to the appropriate hockey charity after being caught.

Deathbymeteor: So what ended up being the outcome from O'Reilly regarding his mouth?  I heard no league discipline, but I would hope the team fined him, or he made a donation to the appropriate hockey charity after being caught.


Reilly never said what what was reported he said.
He was "f" bombing the ref, but not the gay "f" bomb. Someone on the Bolts bench was yelling "rag it" at the same time to one of their d guys while they were doing a line change.
Plus it's extra unlikely he said it considering his prior support of LGBTQ2 charities and causes.

They're playing like they are bored af and are just waiting for the playoffs...
and it's 4-0

/ They need to be reminded they still need a couple of wins between now and then or there might not be any playoffs.

Blackhawks are making a lot of teams look like crap. Destroyed the Coyotes on Monday and embarrassing the Leafs now.

Might be too little, too late for their playoff hopes though

Saw the schedule for tonight, and thought "Leafs / Hawks, that should be a good game! A lot of back and forth play, AM34 and Toews? shiat this will be a fun game!"

.... Turns the game on.

Heh, really! WoF used to be fun to play with friends. Now it's just... sad. Insipid is a word we do't use enough.
Truth is that this game is a shocker. But the last Leafs game, they looked like shiat and didn't recover. Then again, against TB anyone else looks like shiat.

We've started longing for the days where the winners had to go spend their money (at full retail) on various crap from assorted showcases (yes, we're old...).  At least on Jeopardy, when someone really, really bombs at least they can claim 'you know, you have to be pretty smart to even get on this show...'.  On WoF you can quite often see the look of pity/incredulity in Pat's eyes ... 'man, you've really made an ass of yourself on national tv...' (like the woman the other night with about $15k on the line that couldn't figure out that '_andsprings' was 'handsprings' - '...uh, sandsprings?' (I think there was even a 't_e' sitting on the board at the time)).

Ah well, remote claimed & I was even able to see some of Bob during the intermission... not that I really care about either team.  But 'hockey' (by one of the teams anyway)

Okay, Leafs, I was only kidding about dropping to the first w/c spot to play in the Metro for a couple of rounds..

He's a not a bad coach.  But is it time to sort of all agree he's a tad overrated? Most people forget that he was only in Detroit for the one cup not multiple.  He gets credit for medals with Team Canada when Patrice Bergeron was his 13th forward.  Again he's not a bad coach but probably not the zen master some people want to think he is.
 
2019-03-13 08:43:55 PM  
One back! 5-1 after 2. I might remind everyone the last time these two played it was 7-6, and all five 30+ goal scorers playing tonight scored that night.

I've never been happier over a misdiagnosed asthma condition.  Johnsson is a farking stud.

He was a lot of fun to watch with the Marlies last year. Trevor Moore is about 18 months behind him, but he will be a stud too.

I'm not sure I'd go as far as "overrated".

His influence, arguably, changed the game forever.  I worked, in my off time, with the Spokane Chiefs when Babcock was coach.  Sure, we worked a few contact drills, but that's not why I was there.  The orders were to work blade skills and speed first and always.

The rest of the WHL quickly realized our boys were out skating them, you can't hit what you can't catch.  So shortly after, they started working similar training plans.

Fast forward a decade, and the NHL's penalty minutes have dropped dramatically.  The blade skills are better than ever.

And believe it or not, Babcock's legacy lives on in Spokane.  Their 16u and 14u teams are headed back to nationals AGAIN this year.  Because they're fast, and technical.

Sure, other coaches have caught up.  Some may have passed him, but he started this game and deserves the respect for that.

Yeah, he moved from there to the local Baby Ducks (AHL - Cinti).  His yearish here was one of the few times that they went to the Calder playoffs (he then went up to the big club and the SCFinals & a year or three later the club moved to Iowa(?)).

_/hell of a finish to the game...

Spotting the other team 5 is always a bold plan for a win... But that 3rd period fire looks like it finally got these guys awake... Sorry Philly, Friday is going to be an ugly away game.

(not paying a whole lot of attention to the idiot box)

"And here's 'x' singing both the Canadian & American national anthems..."

(wtf, when did they start doing that 'after' the games? ... oh, the feed switched over....sigh)

Watching the Oilers/Philly game.

Can we give the guy who's singing the anthems 2 minutes for embellishment?

The puck in the net would have been tie game if the DoG P was called. Not sure the Leafs earned a point in the first 40, but...

My 13 year old son is a Level 2 ref.  I tend to defer to him on these things.

He's not even a Leafs fan and he completely lost his shiat on that call.

Hey kids, always chase possible icing.  If you make it past the hash marks, it's good fun!
 
2019-03-13 10:12:22 PM  
Chicago need to run the table to get 95 points. 95 points was good enough for Colorado to get the last w/c spot in the West last year... As good as they've been since January, it's probably already too late.

Another fun fact poking around the standings... The President's Trophy Preds had 117pts last year, the Bolts already have 110 with 12 games to go.

Glad to hear it's not just (homer) me that thinks that non-call was ass.
