Definitely an OLD TIME hockey play.

5 was too much. No way in HELL should that have been a major penalty for charging.
In my mind that shouldn't even be a penalty.....though with the rinkydink NHL rules it should have been 2 for goalie interference.

Got to agree.. and AV put together a great patchwork team.. No second line really but 2 decent 3rd lines
First line was not effective ( Weise played more 5 on 5 minutes than Danny) but the other 3 played over their heads and Schneider turned in an A+ performance. Hansen turned in another good 2 way game..
Edler played his best game in months .. It turned out to be an exciting game.. 3rd period heroics and flubs made it fun
to watch.. Sill no PP.. time for a change ?

A few missed calls by the linemen as well but both ways.
Good game by almost everyone tonight. Another steal for Cory, but thats what we expect from our number 1.
I too liked Ballard up front. He looked like he was playing relaxed hockey, not afraid to make a mistake and get benched. A surprising win to me, I expected less tonight. 2 in a row, 4 of the last 6. Suddenly the stats don';t look so bad eh.
But we will be in tough against LA and will not get by on these games where we give away one period or more. Here's hoping we can play a good 60 in LA and then take care of the Avs.

Rule 42 - Charging
42.1 Charging - A minor or major penalty shall be imposed on a player who skates or jumps into, or charges an opponent in any manner.
Charging shall mean the actions of a player who, as a result of distance traveled, shall violently check an opponent in any manner. A “charge” may be the result of a check into the boards, into the goal frame or in open ice.
A minor, major or a major and a game misconduct shall be imposed on a player who charges a goalkeeper while the goalkeeper is within his goal crease.
A goalkeeper is not “fair game” just because he is outside the goal crease area. The appropriate penalty should be assessed in every case where an opposing player makes unnecessary contact with a goalkeeper. However, incidental contact, at the discretion of the Referee, 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 contact.
Rule 51 - Roughing
51.3 Match Penalty - If, in the judgment of the Referee, a goalkeeper uses his blocking glove to punch an opponent in the head or face in an attempt to or to deliberately injure an opponent, a match penalty must be assessed.
