from Bruce Dowbiggin of the Globe and Mail,
Maybe the NHL needs a new TV commercial. “What if Nick Lidstrom’s stick hadn’t blown up in Game 2?... History wouldn’t be made without a composite stick.”
Usual Suspects has noticed more explosions than The Hurt Locker when it comes to composite sticks in these playoffs. Lidstrom’s stick shattering on San Jose’s winning goal Sunday is the latest and most spectacular example of stick frailty creating game-changing plays. The ice is regularly littered with broken RbKs or Eastons—and broken chances.
