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

 

I remember that game.  I had a noise violation in my mailbox the morning after that one from my condo board.  

 

Also, great run by the Blue Jackets.  16-0 is phenomenal.

Well, @DaveP043, my stint as "Caps fan for 150 minutes" has ended. Successfully, I might add.

Go Pens!

LOL, when I mentioned in the other thread that it was almost dinner and hockey time, you know which game I was watching.  Probably one of the best overall efforts by the Caps so far this year.

Being close by us, my bruv and I were rooting for the CBJ, but I agree that the Caps looked very good last night. CBJ wasn't flat, but Washington was that much better.

I'll be interested to see what kind of effort the Blue Jackets put together for NYR on Saturday night.

They were all over the Rangers for most of the first 2 periods and led at one point 4-1. The Rangers woke up and scored 3 third period goals including the game winner with under a minute to go.

Rangers 5 BJ's 4

Mixed results for the CBJ lately. ... Beat the Flyers Sunday, but not so good against Carolina last night. It's a marathon. Not a sprint.

I only saw a period or so last night, but it looked like nobody showed up down south. Only 9,531 officially. Seems like ages ago when the Canes won the Cup.

Of course my Habs decided to get battered against the Caps on Monday. Made it a lot easier to flip over to the football game my bruv wanted to watch.

Yeah, all of a sudden the Caps are playing pretty well.  Pretty complete efforts against CBJ, Montreal, and last night against Pittsburgh, sandwiched around a kinda dull 1-0 snoozer against the Senators.  I hope they get on a run of good play like this in April and May, but that's a long time away.

^^^This would be nice, but just like with my Dolphin's, the Cap's get me excited and then quickly frustrate the crap out of me because they bring the wrong team to the important games.

Habs offense has not been in evidence for either these past two games against Detroit and Pittsburgh. When you don't have much in the way of top line talent, it requires more effort than that. Glad the Pens game wasn't available on tv locally. I was probably happier at the gym.

You would have been, yeah. It was the best Pens road game of the year (they've not been good on the road) and the first complete game that resembled their playoff run last year.

Which is interesting with Cullen, Letang, Kuhnackl, and Dumoulin out.

Judging by Saturday's debacle at the Bell Centre by my guys, the Habs offense is just fine. EIther that or the Rangers are skidding, probably a combo of both. Fun place to watch a game tho. Everyone up there is really into the action

This is older, and Sid's not the only player who can do these things by any stretch, but it's worth watching.

There are others out there as well. They're all pretty good.

I'm getting sick of the "stick up for your teammates" thing going too far. Hockey is a tough, fast game and sometimes hard hits happen. Stopping the game because your teammate got rocked on a clean hit is stupid.

I'm getting tired of not-so-clean hits being unpunished, too.

Like, say…

Nada.

Ward got a two-minute roughing call there didn't he? Or maybe I'm on the wrong game. 

Supposing it's the same one, if his skaters had simply done their job and cleared the crease, it would have never happened. Really Ward should have punched his own players in the face.

It's an automatic game misconduct and a suspension.

Punching someone is a game misconduct and a suspension? In the NHL? Not yet it isn't.

I understand you don't like it, but 2 minutes is pretty consistent with how they called that sort of thing for years.

    • I have been diagnosed with fast-twitch muscles allowing me to hit a drive 280 yards.  But I probably couldn't carry a couch up the steps through the front door.  I have power and strength in short bursts.
    • First, I just thought it was interesting idea.  Maybe it'll work; maybe not.   I don't know if it is or not.  I said as much above.   It's not fair on its face, but again, the guy with more ball speed currently would have more clubs at the max ball speed to use--the other guy only has one.  The launch characteristics would lead to different distances so the longer player could still game the clubs.  Additionally, while driver for driver the longer guy would lose out, he still benefits through the bag because he has more speed--it would require less effort for him.  Plus, it's only the top number being affected.  The longer guy would still have shorter clubs in--the distance off the tee would just be more similar.  That's the whole point of the distance debate. Remember, if you read the report sent out--this mostly about driver distance.  Further, the orgs want there to be a balance of many skills.  Right now when you look at strokes gained, distance is at a premium.  The orgs want to bring balance by lowering the premium on distance by making it more even.  This would lower the importance of distance and put more emphasis on approach play.  Distance is giving too much of an edge and the orgs want to even it out a bit, so the argument goes.  It's not a bad one.  When you look at a conceptual pie chart of: driving distance, approach the green, around the green play, and putting--there's too much emphasis on driving distance to the point that it swallows up the other skills to a large degree.  It directly affects approach shots via shorter distances and shorter clubs, which as we all know, leads to closer proximity to the hole and more putts being made.  Go reread your own book. Again, it's not fair to the long ball hitter--it's not supposed to be.  It's an attempt to adjust and balance out the requisite skills to compete at the highest level.  Again, a ball speed limit, even if viable, would only affect the top players of the game, and would lessen the importance of distance, bringing balance to the skill palette.  
    • I've gotten it to work on iOS. Sorry, I can't help you with the Android stuff.
    • Nice to have a set of shiny new sticks to enjoy. But now, the real question - will you come on back here and let us know if it improved your game? Or are you scoring just the same as before?
    • Distance is positively correlated with scoring. My first time on a launch monitor was in my mid 30's testing a 3 wood, they thought it was busted because the computer said I was flying it 295. Pro comes over.  He hits gaggle of drives.  260-265.  Asks me what I hit into par 5 holes?   At 61 years old, my driver ball speed is only 165-168. I believe the gentleman claiming the balls speeds.  Some of it is genetic.  Some of it is a natural swing.  Some of it is mentality.  I wanted the fastest slapshot, longest homerun, longest snowball throw, longest discus, longest javelin.  All of this effort teaches you how to use the proper muscles. The slappers who tilt the wrong way?  Ha Ha
