With all due respect to one of the best posters ...We all know that come playoff time, hockey changes back to the trap. Take a lead heading into the third and watch a whole lot of nothing going on! Perfect example yesterday. 2-1 in second and game finished 2-1.
2012- 5 games, 5 unders
2011- 5 of 7 games under 5 or less goals
2010- 5 of 6 games over 5 goals....PERFECT!
2009- 5 of 7 games under 5 or less goals
2008- 5 of 6 games under 5 or less goals
2007- 3 of 5 games under 5 or less goals
2006- 5 out 7 games under 5 or less goals
Yesterdays game showed exactly what is lacking in hockey. Nice goals dont exist anymore. Deeking and individual play doesnt happen like it did in the 80s and like it does on Olympic sized rinks.
Cycle, dump it in, block shots, shoot through traffic and hope for the best.
Both Devils goals were luck last night. Not one beautiful goal.
The Kings goal was a nice shot by a player who got allowed to walk in the slot freely and had a screener passing in front of Brodeur.
Cheers to all!
