Sedin was out of control, the d-man has to protect the entry to the goal on that play.

Bull. Sedin was in control. the D-man can protect the entry to the goal by playing goal-side and not being beat. Once you’re seeing someone’s back, you don’t put your hands on them, period. I’d almost like to see this penalized like checking into the boards. You shove a player towards the goal and setup a huge collision between either both or one of them and the post, 5 and a game. Maybe then D-men will learn that the person carrying the puck is actually slower then you if your just skating to get back in front of them instead of trying grab or hook or whatever.

That was a nice dive

I agree defenders should not be pushing the forward in that situation, but can you honestly say that Daniel Sedin cannot take that little push and stay up??

I think it was borderline but he’s a good enough diver that I figured he’d at least miss the post if he did dive.

That was the second Mike Smith “run” of the night.

Third, RxB. Klesla pushed another ‘nuck into Smith when he was down after Edler ran him…
