NHL Three Stars: Night of the OT thrillers (and goalie interference) (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 21 Oct 2014 23:17:53 PDT)
No. 1 Star: Kevin Klein, New York Rangers Klein needed to do his goalie Henrik Lundqvist a solid after a few pucks had gone in off the defenseman this season, including one against the New Jersey Devils. So he gave Lundqvist the win with the third game-winner of his eight-season career, scoring at 2:18 of overtime to complete a Rangers rally for the 4-3 win. No. 2 Star: Phil Kessel, Toronto Maple Leafs Phil The Thrill led the Leafs’ rally on Long Island, scoring two goals and assisting on one by James van Riemsdyk as Toronto blew past the New York Islanders, 5-2. No. 3 Star: Ondrej Palat, Tampa Bay Lightning Palat’s sweet backhand goal on a point blast from Anton Stralman gave the Bolts a 2-1 overtime victory against the Calgary Flames, as Evgeni Nabokov outdueled Karri Ramo. Honorable Mention: Antti Raata made 32 saves and the Chicago Blackhawks scored three first-period goals in a 4-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Patrick Kane had two goals. … It wasn’t pretty, but the Boston Bruins defeated the San Jose Sharks, 5-3. Seth Griffith scored his first NHL goal. Torey Krug and Milan Lucic had 3-point nights. Logan Couture had two goals. … David Desharnais was the OT hero for the Montreal Canadiens, as they defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 2-1. The Nashville Predators won again, this time in a shootout over the Arizona Coyotes. Ryan Ellis scored a goal in regulation and the eventual winner in the shootout. … Adam Lowery scored his first NHL goal and Dustin Byfuglien added the back-breaker in the second as the Winnipeg Jets defeated the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-1. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 21 of 22 shots. … The Dallas Stars got two goals from Erik Cole and a slew of other multi-point games in doubling the Vancouver Canucks. … Rick Nash scored his eighth for the Rangers. … Brad Boyes’ OT goal at 2:23 gave the Florida Panthers a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche, who rallied from three goals down. Did You Know? The Devils and Rangers were a combined 5-for-8 on the power play. Dishonorable Mention: Thomas Hickey and Travis Hamonic were a minus-3. … Ryan Miller was pulled after giving up five goals on 13 shots. … Nick Bonino, Alex Burrows and Chris Higgins were minus-3; Kevin Bieksa was a minus-4. … This goalie interference penalty was bad. … This goalie interference penalty was terrible. ... In fact, the overall officiating in the Panthers/Avs game was terrible.

How terrible is this goalie interference call on Nick Bjugstad? (Video) (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 21 Oct 2014 21:38:34 PDT)
The Florida Panthers defeated the Colorado Avalanche in overtime on Tuesday night, 4-3, on a Brad Boyes goal. This result proves that the Hockey Gods have a sense of goodness and fairness, because the Panthers were nearly jobbed by an atrocious goalie interference penalty late in the third period. Bjugstad made a brilliant move in the Avalanche zone, skating out from behind the net, turning and accelerating through the Colorado defense towards goalie Reto Berra. The goalie moved to the top of his crease and attempted a poke check. Bjugstad collided with his pad and flew through the air. The result? Two minutes for goalie interference, a penalty that the Panthers would eventually kill. The NHL rulebook, on goalie interference: “Incidental contact with a goalkeeper will be permitted, and resulting goals allowed, when such contact is initiated outside of the goal crease, provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such contact.” Or, if you prefer: A goalkeeper is not “fair game” just because he is outside the goal crease. The appropriate penalty should be assessed in every case where an attacking player makes unnecessary contact with the goalkeeper. However, incidental contact will be permitted when the goalkeeper is in the act of playing the puck outside his goal crease provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such unnecessary contact. Considering where Berra was when the contact was made, and the fact that his aggressive defensive play was THE ONLY REASON THERE WAS CONTACT, there’s no way in hell there should have been a goalie interference call, let alone a power play being handed to Colorado in that situation. The difference between this play and the one that took a Pavel Datsyuk goal off the board for the Red Wings at the Montreal Canadiens? The rules provided Carey Price some cover when he initiated contact with Justin Abdelkader, who had placed himself near the Montreal goalie. But this Bjugstad play only happens because Berra attempts to play the puck. One’s a bad rule with too much gray area. The other’s just a terrible call.

Pavel Datsyuk work of art ruined by NHL goalie interference rules (Video) (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:55:29 PDT)
Pavel Datsyuk returned to the Detroit Red Wings lineup on Tuesday night and did what Pavel Datsyuk does, which is score a ridiculous goal: Blazing speed into the Montreal Canadiens zone, a dangle to the middle, a spinning backhand perfectly placed past Carey Price. Only it didn’t count. Nor should it have counted, as per the NHL’s goalie interference rules and the real-time enforcement of them, without benefit of review. Justin Abdelkader of the Red Wings parked himself next to Price, his skate near the crease. Price moved into his hip, attempting to defend the shot. And the goal was disallowed because of that contact. Fox Sports Detroit announcers Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond went a little nuts, attempting to paint Price as the aggressor here. And he was, but it doesn't matter, as the NHL rules state: “Goals should be disallowed only if: (1) an attacking player, either by his positioning or by contact, impairs the goalkeeper’s ability to move freely within his crease or defend his goal.” Now, the Red Wings ended up losing this one, 2-1 in overtime, turning this disallowed goal into a rather significant one, because Detroit would have gone up 2-0. Instead, Alex Galchenyuk scored with 3:09 left and then Montreal won it in overtime. After the game, coach Mike Babcock joined the chorus of his announcers: "Abby ends up with his foot in the paint, but Price definitely initiates contact." Again: Letter of the law, the refs called it right, because there's no way of telling if Price sold the bump or if was impaired, as the play went on. But if the question is whether the law should work like that, giving goalies yet another advantage per the rulebook while coaches have no recourse with a challenge during the game, well … it’s just too bad about that Datsyuk goal is all.
Pavel Datsyuk back for the Detroit Red Wings (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:31:30 PDT)
Sunshine. Puppies. Pavel Datsyuk in the lineup. What are three things that undeniably brighten your day? The Detroit Red Wings star will make his season debut on Tuesday night at the Montreal Canadiens, four weeks after suffering a separated shoulder. Johan Franzen, alas, is headed to seven-day injured reserve with a wonky groin to open up that spot for Datsyuk. As Helene St. James of the Free Press notes, getting him back could mean very good things for the Red Wings’ offense: Getting Datsyuk back surely would help an offense that so far has sputtered; the four goals scored Friday at Toronto mark the only time the Wings have topped two goals in a game. Saturday, they scored once — in overtime. The power play has been especially egregious, its 9.5% success rate reflecting two goals on 21 opportunities. "We have to get more pucks to the net," defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. "We've been a little bit too stationary once we do enter the zone. We need to make sure we have more motion." When it was brought to Kronwall's attention that he said the same thing a billion times last season, he laughed. "It might have been more than that." Datsyuk will play on the Red Wings’ top line, skating with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader. He’ll also be on the top power-play unit.

(The Sports Xchange) - Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has apologized for an obscene gesture he made toward fans as he entered the penalty box during Thursday's game at the Montreal Canadiens. Lucic was fined $5,000 by the NHL on Friday. Lucic received a penalty late during the 6-4 loss. As he entered the penalty box, he made the gesture and then flexed his arms pretending to lift the Stanley Cup. "Obviously not proud of what I did there," Lucic said on Saturday.

Chris Campoli concussed after elbow; does Sweden need more fighting? (Video) (Puck Daddy)
(Sat, 18 Oct 2014 08:34:49 PDT)
So the Swedish Hockey League is in a bit of a hit-to-the-head rut. Earlier this week, Johan Forsberg went high on an opponent, was ejected from the game and called with an apology. Now it’s former NHL defenseman Chris Campoli on the receiving end. Campoli – who played for the New York Islanders, Ottawa Senators, Chicago Blackhawks and Montreal Canadiens – is on HV71 in the SHL. After releasing the puck in a game on Friday night, he was hit high by Vaxjo forward Alexander Johansson. Campoli said he suffered a concussion. No question that Johansson finishes high, with his elbow, on Campoli. "It is disgusting to see such things. It can end a career," said forward Teemu Laine. “An elbow to the head is just cowardly. It is cowardly to lift his arms. And even if I do not sit in any disciplinary board so it must be very heavy penalties. It's the only way to get it off.” Said Campoli: "I have been diagnosed with a concussion but feel a little better now compared to last night.” This is the third incident recently featuring a high hit on a SHL player, which has led to an interesting suggestion from SportExpressen’s Henrik Sjöberg: Maybe Swedish hockey needs more fighting: “I know that the debate about fighting in hockey parts IIHF Sweden and I'm not saying that you should make it to a show in North America, but I believe that the penalty for throwing the gloves are way too hard in Sweden. “When Johan Forsberg apologizes and is saddened by the situation in Coop Arena, I do not miss him, but yet I can not help but think that it might never have happened if he knew he would have to stand up for his actions afterwards. “Or if the penalty has been twice as hard.” It’s not the first time someone has called for more fighting in the SHL . But we imagine that last suggestion would be taken before the SHL ever eases on fighting rules, which involve automatic suspensions.

Milan Lucic fined $5K by NHL for obscene gesture in Montreal (Puck Daddy)
(Fri, 17 Oct 2014 09:24:09 PDT)
Milan Lucic, we get it. You’re in the penalty box, you’re facing the crowd, your gloves are low enough where perhaps it’ll go unnoticed that you’re pantomiming masturbation to the Montreal Canadiens fans. Alas, it did not, and Milan Lucic was fined on Friday by the National Hockey League for that lewd gesture. From the NHL: Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has been fined $5,000 for an obscene gesture made during Game No. 53 in Montreal on Thursday, Oct. 16, the National Hockey League’s Hockey Operations Department announced today. Lucic expressed his self-satisfaction late in the third period of the Bruins’ 6-4 loss at the Canadiens on Thursday night. He was penalized for boarding after hitting Montreal defenseman Alexei Emelin after he had released the puck – an opponent, incidentally, that Lucic threatened to “kill” during their post-series handshake in the 2014 Eastern Conference Playoffs. Lucic went to the penalty box, faced the fans, had a stroke and then raised his hands in the air to mimic hoisting the Stanley Cup. Which, as we said at the time, was really the obscene gesture considering Lucic (1 Stanley Cup) has some catching up to do with the Canadiens (24 Stanley Cups). It was a scant two years ago that another Bruin, current Edmonton Oiler Andrew Ference, was fined $2,500 for an obscene gesture in Montreal, in which he gave Canadiens fans the finger located between his index and his ring. But the Lucic punishment still pales in comparison to the granddaddy of all sexual gesture punishments: James Wisniewski in 2010, who was actually suspended two games for a graphic sexual gesture made with this mouth towards Sean Avery of the New York Rangers. Under the CBA at the time, the most he could have been fined was $2,500. The suspension cost him over $79,000. So consider yourself lucky, Milan Lucic, for only having gotten lucky with yourself.

Tuukka Rask targeted by idiot’s laser pointer in Montreal (Video) (Puck Daddy)
(Fri, 17 Oct 2014 00:01:24 PDT)
In the second period of the Boston Bruins’ 6-4 loss at the Montreal Canadiens, a green dot danced around the crease of goalie Tuukka Rask. Somewhere inside Bell Centre sat an idiot. And they had a laser pointer. We’ve seen this before, of course. Miikka Kiprusoff had a laser hit his mask several times at the Vancouver Canucks back in 2010. Ditto Jose Theodore, who had it happen that year in a game at the New York Rangers. In this case, Rask said the laser didn’t affect him. “You know, I saw it in the second but it was in the offensive zone. Good thing I didn’t go blind or anything,” he told ESPN Boston’s Joe McDonald. Here's a look from NESN, via Kevin V.: As we’ve said in the past: Laser pointers are explicitly banned from arenas, but there’s only so much that ushers and other personnel can do. It’s on us, as fans, to police our own. And shining a laser point on the ice, no matter how much you loathe the opponent, is something narc-worthy. *** More From Yahoo Hockey:

Dishonorable Mention: Zdeno Chara was a minus-3. … Cory Schneider was lit up for five goals on 26 shots before he was pulled. … Jamie McGinn was a minus-3. … Mikhail Grabovski suffered an upper body injury. … Milan Lucic is likely getting a fine for these fan taunts.

Milan Lucic taunts Montreal fans, is bit of a jerk (Video) (Puck Daddy)
(Thu, 16 Oct 2014 20:25:25 PDT)
Please recall that Alexei Emelin of the Montreal Canadiens was one of the players Milan Lucic threatened during the post-Game 7 handshake line last playoffs. If you’re Lucic, playing against the Canadiens for the first time this season, you might want to follow through on your threat. You may want to hit Emelin as hard as you can, maybe even cross the line of legality when you do so. Now, when would be a good time to unleash this fury? If you guessed “any time other than with 1:20 left in a game in which your team trails by a goal,” well, you’d be right. You also wouldn’t be Milan Lucic. Lucic followed through on a hit after Emelin had released the puck and turned his back to Lucic, earning the Bruins forward a boarding penalty. P.A. Parenteau scored an empty net power-play goal to seal the 6-4 win for the Habs. Being a creature of petulance, Lucic took his moment in the penalty box to taunt the Montreal fans jeering him. Here, watch this GIF and see if you can pick out the moment when he feigns self-gratification to the fans:
