Kings win Game One in OT because Kopitar watches
0 Flares 0 Flares ×
And we’re off…
- Yes, suddenly Lewis is 6’4″ and menacing. No, Mike, that was Dwight King.
- I wonder if we can go the whole game without hearing “regathers.”
- I would like to keep it to under 10 uses of “knifes” as a verb.
- I guess Eddie Olczyk never really watched the Terry Murray Kings. I think he just said that Sutter taught the Kings to defend.
- Brown hit on Parise. Nice and clean. Penner Hit Purity Rating: 6/10.
- (Penner said, of the so-called biggest hit of the playoffs, something like: “it was so pure I enjoyed it.” He was the “checkee.”)
- Was that Voynov? Giveaway. Yes.
- Fraser shoots, he scores. That was a huge play by Jordan Nolan, right when Emerick was talking about the hugeness of King and Nolan.
- Clarkson shoots wide.
- Dustin, don’t be stupid. They’re always going to call that.
- Never mind. Replay shows that Martin Brodeur is THE SHAME OF THE NHL. According to Dave Tippett.
- “The only place you can score on him.” The announcers are going to stick to that theory, I guess.
- Peter Harrold on the power play. Did he hear Dustin Brown coming?
- I think “Brown’s” hit on Salvador was actually Kopitar.
- Clarkson snake-bit already.
- Good stick by Mitchell.
- Zubrus on Carter. A little elbowy.
- Lewis injured on that hit?
- Have the Devils had a shot yet this period? I hesitate to type that.
- Jesus. Did they forget to freeze these pucks? The thing is bouncing all over the place.
- Slew foot by Stoll. At what point does Stoll decide what the hell, no one’s watching?
- Olczyk just said, the Devils have to overload one side and then go to the other side. ?
- I don’t think the Lewis shot off Brodeur’s knob would have gone in.
- (Lewis not injured)
- I haven’t heard a single regathers or knifes.
- Nice save by Brodeur on Scuderi.
- I like “sized up by Salvador.”
- Emerick reports, shockingly, that the players are communicating with each other on the ice. O Teamwork!
- Sutter doesn’t even bother putting out a power play unit. Just a little bit of everyone. King/Stoll…okay, Williams. So that’s a nod in the direction of a powerplay.
- Whose terrible pass was that? I’m thinking Darryl Sydor.
- Scuderi? Wow.
- Quick knocked that down with his glove. Quick = good.
- Martinez, excellent on Henrique.
- Voynov, excellent on Bernier.
- Voynov’s shoulder, I guess I don’t blame you.
- Bounces. That’s what happens when you crash ye olde net.
- I don’t know why I just went Olde English.
- Oh, Zach Parise, you’re so sneaky. Nicely done though. Too bad about the CAMERAS.
- And the ref saw it anyway.
- Now, watch they’ll call it a goal.
- Why does Pierre McGuire have to be between the benches? They should just put him in a plexiglass box and dangle him over the ice on cables.
- Nice hit by Nolan.
- Nice pounding on Brodeur by Nolan. (digging for puck, I mean)
- Who missed THAT open net? Clarkson again?
- REGATHERED. 8:30 left in the third.
- KNIFED, at around 8:00. I wonder if the two are filed together in Emerick’s brain.
- Guy with giant hammer comes out to fix pro-LA boards.
- Jarret Stoll auditions for playoff goat. Quick says no.
- I mean…
- Who will get the game-winner? Voynov or Harrold.
- Mitchell burned, saved by Voynov?
- Lewis checks Henrique off-sides.
- Gionta’s head doesn’t come up to Ponikarovsky’s shoulder.
- Larry “Never Trust a Forward” Robinson.
- Kovalchuk up the ice with Williams on defense. Please, no.
- Nolan saves game by blocking Kovalchuk’s shot off faceoff.
- Parise pinch.
- Doughty to Williams…
- Check it out. Brodeur tried to do the last second pad lift, like he did several times to great effect in the playoffs.
- But apparently Kopitar watched “10 Best Saves” on NHL Tonight because
- …he put the puck under the pad after Brodeur lifted it.
- Kings have won 9 straight on the road this playoffs.
- 11 going back to last year’s post-season.
- And they’re 2-0 in SCF game
- My heroes of the game, in addition to the obvious Kopitar and Williams *for that amazing pass) are Voynov, for bailing out Mitchell, and Nolan, for the forecheck on goal one and for blocking the Kovalchuk shot.
