That was many sorts of disappointing and no sorts of surprising.

I agree with you. I had to read the interference rule (http://www.nhl.com/nhl/en/v3/ext/rules/2018-2019-NHL-rulebook.pdf)

Did the referee interpret the second paragraph of the rule as legal...

<Joking/Not Joking/>



Rule 56 – Interference 56.1 Interference -
A strict standard on acts of interference must be adhered to in all areas of the rink.

Body Position: Body position shall be determined as the player skating in front of or beside his opponent, traveling in the same direction. A player who is behind an opponent, who does not have the puck, may not use his stick, body or free hand in order to restrain his opponent, but must skate in order to gain or reestablish his proper position in order to make a check. A player is allowed the ice he is standing on (body position) and is not required to move in order to let an opponent proceed. A player may “block” the path of an opponent provided he is in front of his opponent and moving in the same direction. Moving laterally and without establishing body position, then making contact with the non-puck carrier is not permitted and will be penalized as interference.


A player is always entitled to use his body position to lengthen an opponent’s path to the puck, provided his stick is not utilized (to make himself “bigger” and therefore considerably lengthening the distance his opponent must travel to get where he is going); his free hand is not used and he does not take advantage of his body position to deliver an otherwise illegal check.

Rule 54 is holding. Think that would cover it

Klefbom was playing like it was 5 on 5 with the goalie in the net. That was hard to watch. C'mon

I'm honestly losing patience with Klef, he misses half the season every season, comes back and makes dumb little mistakes and everyone calls him defence god. I almost prefer Benning at this point

I was screaming at the television. I mean that’s just a fucking elementary mistake.

I get Rattie is a bit hurt still and Kassian has been showing some promise but I still definitely do not think he should be on the 1st, it hasn't been good today, too many squandered chances

level 2

Kassian always shows promise but it ends there.

level 2

Yeah i think they should try and not have power forwards playing with mcdavid for now. They can't keep up. Drai elected to shoot on some shots rather than setting up kass. Lets see what happens

Not often we hit 40 shots. Moral victories? It’s about all we have at this point.

Edit: I spoke too soon I guess

This isn't the last season of the NHL. That is the silver lining I'll sit on..

Is the Pens game plan to deny McDAVID any chance? It’s so sad that it’s working.

level 2
93 NUGENT-HOPKINS6 points · 8 days ago

Shut down the top line, the other 3 lines of the Oilers aren’t going to anything lol.

level 1

They could trade anyone on this team except Connor and Leon and I truly wouldn't give a shit.

level 2
93 NUGENT-HOPKINS10 points · 8 days ago

Add Nuge to that list.

Klef should be penciled there too. Him being in the lineup prevents our defence from turning into an absolute fire drill
