I feel for SJ… I am always torn on how I feel about the automatic delay of game penalty for this. I know what the purpose of it is, and I get it, but it just seems like a really really shitty way to essentially settle or turn the tide of a playoff game.

It’s a dumb penalty. Just treat it like an icing. Glad to see it happening to SJ though.

Meanwhile, this time I have to agree with Melrose: Kings are starting to get that look.  Kopitar, Richards, Stoll down the middle.  Carter on the wing.  Quick.  Why is this team underrated so often?

The delay of game penalty is a great rule, 90% of the time the defenseman is under pressure and can’t control puck. The defensive team shouldn’t get an opportunity to change the game by shooting the puck out of the rink to avoid the forecheck.

I wonder when we’re going to see defensive players on the PK playing with a less-curved stick to make backhand clearing attempts less likely to get away from them.  Also, I’m surprised more guys don’t play with wooden sticks (or maybe heavier composite sticks?) to avoid breaking them on the PK.

Exactly how I feel about the impending Blackhawks sweep.

A bit touchy on a Friday morning. I guess I’d feel the same way if my team never won anything.

I just pointed and laughed at Vlasic.  I lol’d in my belly so hard.
