I agree. But at the same time a goalie playing the puck and lingering long enough to cause obstruction isn't cool either.

Not what happened here per se. But goalies take advantage all the time.

Yea but a goalie playing a live puck for a long period of time isn't actually a good thing for the defensive team. They're not really suited for board battles and they're fairly easy to take the puck from.

I imagine if the goalie on the boards forces the referee to blow the play dead it would be considered freezing the puck outside of the crease and a delay of game penalty.

Not what I'm saying. I'm saying some have a bad habit of playing the puck and then sticking around to obstruct. 

They abuse the rule that protects them.

Oh ok yea that I get what you're saying now. That should be interference called against the goaltender then but we both know how the NHL enforces the rules.

And to be clear, that's not what Lundqvist did.

But goalies do it all the time, and it amounts to letting their D get an easy up and out.

I think goalies should generally be confined to the front of the net, and I'd be okay with the rules changing to allow them to be hit just like any other player when they're out of the crease and playing the puck. I think it would lead to more offense.

But that's not the way the rules are now. At all.

Don't look now Pen fans. Walking into Nationwide Arena tonight and the CBJ on a 10-game win streak. Unless the Habs are on the tube, I'm watching it.

And see, this would be the perfect time to switch your allegiance 100% to the local boys.  I'll pay for the avatar switch & name change ;-)

Seriously, seeing CBJ and the Flyers go on a 10 game streak this season has made me wonder if I've slipped into some bizarro-world.  10-straight in the NHL is tough.  And my (questionable) eyes just don't see CBJ's talent matching up to the top 50-60% of the league.  But the Flyers...Steve Mason et al...you kidding me?

Yeah...the Metro is crazy this season.

Ottawa Senators fan here! :dance:

They're playing better than last season, happy with the coach change this summer for Guy Boucher. Erik Karlsson will win his 3rd Norris trophy after this season, hands down! They will eliminate the Canadiens in the playoffs. :-D

After last year, I'm just focusing on making the playoffs. Maybe we'll chat in April.

Boom. CBJ 7 PIt 1. And now the Canadiens, fresh off a loss to Minnesota, play Columbus. Hopefully the Blue Jackets filled their quota against the Penguins.

Not too worried. Pens are missing their top two D, and Pouliot gave up 2 of the first three, and the first was on a suspect 4 minute minor.

Blue Jackets have played three fewer games than most people. We'll see how they do when their schedule compresses. I believe they play 16 times in March, for example?

And Bobrovsky has to stay healthy. And you know as soon as they lose a few Torts will blow his haystack.

CBS only managed 28 shots.

Ain't that the truth.

Obviously, you can't get too wrapped up in any single game. Still a bit nervous what my struggling club will do tonight.

Sorry to here that. Get well soon.

Ha! At least I know whenever Ottawa plays Montreal, we have better odds of winning recently. :-P

You know it's getting bad when you feel a major sense of relief after a come-from-behind effort against Florida. ... Here in Ohio, we had the CBJ game on and when I saw a score of 2-1 Panthers on the bottom of the screen, mild cursing ensued.

It was nice for Montoya to get that win.

While the Habs were sweating out another razor-close result against Nashville, the CBJ is on the verge of making some history. The Jackets' 3-1 result against the Oilers was very impressive and runs them to 16-straight wins. Edmonton worked very hard last night, but Columbus worked just a bit harder. A successful trip to Washington tomorrow will tie the record held by the 92-93 Penguins.

I guess it's the 10-year anniversary of this:

 

LOL, I just watched that yesterday.  Pretty poor luck on the part of the Dallas guy to have the puck jump like that.  I picture professor Snape in the stands making it happen.  Lucky for him though, I guess they ultimately won in overtime anyway.

Yeah, it wasn't really anything that should be super embarrassing to him. It was bad luck.

That said, he could have done two different things:

  1. He could have shot the puck earlier. Goalie creases have snow buildup.
  2. He could have eaten the puck after he missed instead of trying to flick it back from below the goal line. That made no sense, but he was probably already embarrassed and panicking.
