GDT - 12/20/2007 Canucks vs Stars 7PM TV PPV Radio TEAM 1040

Return of the Stars to GM place since Game 7 of the playoffs.

Should be a low scoring game but then so should have the Devils :)

I'm going to the game again tonight.

Is this really the first time Dallas has played here since last year's playoffs? Hopefully it'll be half as good as any of the games in that series.

With that said I say 2-1 (what else?) Vancouver in OT. Naslund will get the GTG late in the 2nd period and Salo will get the OT winner. Brendan Morrow will reply for the Stars.

The score will, obviously, be 2-1.

I'm just not sure for which team.

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX:

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Dec 20, 2007 8:46 pm

A sloppy first period missing the electric atmosphere that surrounded last spring's first round series. No remarkable plays at either end, though there was an odd, sexually suggestive mixup between Henrik Sedin and Mike Modano to the left of Luongo. The highlight -- which was shown on the Daktronics board to muted laughter -- is bound to wind-up on the wrong part of YouTube. Not that there's anything wrong with it...

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: STARS OF BLUNDER, NUCKS WON TONIGHT

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Dec 20, 2007 10:42 pm

Canucks 3 Stars 2
Bob Mackin

The Buzz:
Daniel Sedin scored the eventual winning goal with a two-man advantage in the third period Thursday to give the Vancouver Canucks a 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

Dull-us Stucks:
Much like the seven-game playoff series won by the Canucks last spring, the teams were sloppy at both ends, spent too much time in the neutral zone and committed avoidable penalties.

Lamplighter:
Mason Raymond stripped the puck from Stu Barnes, took the puck down ice and around the back of the Stars’ net before flipping it into the net from an acute angle.

Called Out:
Stars’ goaltender Marty Turco was penalized for roughing Henrik Sedin with a stick paddle in the face late in the second period. It was actually an act of retaliation for what should’ve landed Hank in the sin bin for goaltender interference. It was the Stars’ first penalty of the game.

Stupid Game Stat:
Roberto Luongo got his first assist of the season on Raymond’s goal.

Even Stupider Game Stat:
All five goals were scored by players with the letter N in the last syllable of their surnames.

Next Up:
The Canucks visit Wayne Gretzky’s Phoenix Coyotes Saturday (7 p.m. Team 1040/CBC) and the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday (5 p.m. Team 1040/Sportsnet). They return home Dec. 27 to host the Calgary Flames.

I have always been curios about these types of media mistakes on stats. I always thought if you were paid to follow a team which I assume is part of what you do that you would have all the info on the stats available to you. looks like you rely on someone else and a source that should be perfect.

my question is that if you are just following stats from another source do you watch all the games or just pick up the summaries throughout the season when you cant watch all the game. do you follow the team very closely as the fans do. ?

LUONGO'S ASSIST: SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

Postby B. Mackin » Fri Dec 21, 2007 12:00 pm

In the goaltenders' section of today's NHL stats release (for games thru Dec. 20) Roberto Luongo does indeed have three assists. I verified this with the NHL media website.

The game box score, as referenced below, was incorrect. I was using the best information available at the time. The error was at source.

This is not a media mistake. Please do not shoot the messenger. I speak not only for myself, but colleagues at competing outlets. We devote as much time as fans and perhaps even more than fans to watching and researching the game. Unfortunately, media outlets do not have staff statisticians. We work under sometimes unforgiving deadlines and rely heavily on the NHL to provide us with accurate statistical information on NHL games. The statistical record of NHL games is, in fact, copyright of the league. The league should do everything and anything possible to ensure the complete accuracy of the numbers and facts of each game and player.
