From the video that we saw, it was definitely not a penalty and definitely not elbowing.

That kinda hit happens every hockey game.

Looks like McDonagh may have separated his shoulder.

Y'know, I was going to give up on Canucks making the playoffs if they lost this game.

But now I see there is still a mathematical possibility, hmmm......

McDonagh shoulda just taken the hit from Kassian like a man instead of twisting himself around like that

(the hit he thought was coming from Kassian).

Girardi threw a bigger elbow to the back of Burrow's head after the hit.

Would anyone be surprised if Burrows gets suspended for the rest of the season? Would anyone be surprised if Kassian also gets suspended for being a repeat offender? I wouldn't.

Girardi's elbow was far more brutal.

The league should rescind Burrows' penalty.

A poor start, no question. But from the 10 minute mark of the first right up until the end of the game the Canucks took the game to the Rangers and all NY could do was collapse to the net as Lundqvist bailed them out. In this game the Canucks conspired against themselves with King Henrik to effectively end any chance of a post-season in Vancouver.

The Good.....

Kassian, Kesler, Bieksa, Burrows, and Mathias, all had strong games and played with a ton of intensity.

Daniel looked his best in a long time, confident even.

The Bad.....

The officiating. Absolutely terrible. You can't get a more obvious interference call to give a team a 5-on-3 than the blown non-call where Bieksa was hauled down in the slot. I seriously don't know how officials fail to call that, but that's what you get when you play in a league that has the worst officiating in all of professional sports. The penalty to Burrows at the end of the game, that's all on McDonaugh for pussing out and not taking the hit from Kassian.

Jensen not being used effectively despite being one of our best offensive players since being called up.

Out of sync. The team just isn't on the same page. Too many cute reverses that were unnecessary and often resulted in the Rangers having an easier time keeping pressure up on the forecheck. Passes not clicking in the offensive zone.

Edler was fucking horrible again.....looked like amateur hour out there on that Ranger's PP goal. And on our PP he is terrible at the point, he can't play the right side so giving him a setup pass for a one-timer is almost pointless, and when he comes down the left boards he has no shooting angle so he opts for a slap pass for a redirect that more often than not goes wide and around up the wall and out of the zone.

Garrison was pretty bad on the point.

Powerplay passing was shit.

Was nice of Vigneault to keep his dog on it's chain at the end of the game, not that it surprised me in the least.
Every time I look out my window, same three dogs looking back at me.

Yet the dogs of society are howling indeed.

LOL fucking Rags fans everywhere are making death threats on Burrows...

I think AV is actually happy McDonagh is injured.

He likes to have excuses for when his team loses in the playoffs. :wink:

We didn't lose this game due to officiating just like we didn't have this miserable year because of them. But boy, when they get it wrong they get it wrong. There is no way I can even remotely see that as a penalty. It was only called because of the injury on the play. The Rags do 't like the hit simply because the game was all but over and they felt is was not necessary. But Burrows finished his check as he should. If the NHL has any credibility left they will not review this and rescind the major.

I feel for Tanner.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
