    Anson Carter is a smug little man on the TNT broadcast.  And he seems to have a axe to grind with the rest of the guys in studio if they disagree.

    He doesn’t have the demeanor to be on that show. He’s easily piqued, which in and of itself disqualifies him.

    Definitely not a guy I would like to have a beer with.

    Not a fan of Schenn, but that was a garbage call.

    Agreed. Interference, maybe; but your stick swings around, hits an opponent and that’s a penalty? Okay.

    What was the call? The swing clearly swung around and hit the player in the head…not particularly hard, but it did.

     

    ”high” sticking.

    I tend to agree it was a bad call.  Players were down low and it was a completely innocent stick meets face based the players positioning.

      Apparently McDavid can’t be checked ever and of course the refs screw up the call

      That postgame Hurricanes celebration at center ice is cringey.

      Canes won off of an unfortunate but perfect Lindgren tip on his own net on OT.

      Possibly due to the little known “least evolved human” always gets two penalty.

        The EDM/CAL o/u opened at 6.5… you can buy in now at 10.5 and the was at 7 goals.  I’ll need to check again now the game is at 8 goals… make that 9 goals.

         

        UPDATE: 12.5 is the current o/u buy in… lol!!!

        UPDATE: Start of the 3rd period and the o/u buy in 13.5.

        UPDATE: 14.5 after EDM tied it.

        UPDATE: Now 15.5… lol!!!

        UPDATE: Dropped to 15 @ around 14 mins left in the 3rd.

        UPDATE: Back to 15.5 @ around 8 mins left in the 3rd.

        Is Mike Smith still their goalie?  The fact the won a playoff series with him in net is pretty stunning…and tells you how bad the Pacific Division really is.

        He got pulled after the 3rd Flames goal.

              Sorry to make it four consecutive posts about Tkachuk, but why was he the one out of the box first? I don’t think he was supposed to be out there to score that eighth goal.

                I looked at the box score – 3 goals in 6 minutes.  Think that proves my point a little

                  He’s a weird one, their defense is so bad that he’s actually saved more goals than expected during the reg season but he also has games like yesterday that are complete yakety sax.

                        Kucherov is unbelievable! Colton with the sweet finish. ⚡️lead series 2-0 🥅. Looked eerily similar to Blues vs Wild brain fart (leaving Tarasenko wide open) on Bolts GWG with 3.8 seconds remaining.

                          Brutal goal to give up. FLA defensemen going behind to net to go after Kucherov and leaving the front of the net wide open was no bueno

                                Carolina has more SHGs than PPGs (0/infinity).

                                  I’m not seeing how the Rangers are gonna have anything for Carolina. CAR is totally shutting them down. Gallant was so desperate to create chances in the third he switched up his D pairings.

                                  It’s pretty cool how nearly 90% of the Calgary wears red at their home games. Might be the best unison crowd in the NHL.

                                  The audio is way ahead of the video in this game and if drives me crazy.

                                  It’s off again tonight.

                                        I think if you wear your visor in a stupid position, you waive the right to draw a double minor for high sticking.

                                        Allowing the stripes to deem a high stick an injury without blood for 4 minutes?!?!?! I’ve seen hundreds of players get more decapitated with an high stick and only a 2 minute penalty was called then that high stick.

                                            He certainly is a pleasure to watch. I very much enjoyed having ESPN+ this season, getting to view him and other top players I wouldn’t ordinarily see on the “network” games.

                                              After having had a couple days to lick their wounds it’s win on Sunday for FLA or fall into an untenable 0-3 hole to the 2 time defending champs. Bruno & company better come up with some new wrinkles on Sunday, starting with their 0 for playoffs power play!

                                                The flames can beat those teams, kinda doubt Edmonton would though. It’s amazing how good McDavid (and Draisaitl) is though that he can carry that ragtag team.

They’ve allowed 3 goals in 3 games to high flying FLA, amazing! Lots of skill, but moreover heart & will and desire to win! FLA got a clean breakaway early in the 1st period & Vass snuffed it! He’s amazing between the pipes. The 3 peat quest is looking good for them

                                                          Kane is certainly on fire. McDavid is a big reason why of course.

                                                                I am not sure of the context of your question, but I think some sports have doctors in the stands who looks for odd behavior that may be a result of a concussion (wobbly legs, erratic or atypical play, etc).  They can pull a player from the game for a medical evaluation.

                                                                I vaguely remember an NFL player who got up after a play and he briefly ran in the wrong direction to get to the huddle and he was pulled from the game.
