Stuart Defines the Series

Posted in Hockey Thoughts with tags , , , , on April 28, 2010 by davepoleck

Define: Humilation

When your team is dominating out of the gate, need a win to put away the series, and are givenĀ a very early powerplay….and you do this:

Define: Backbreaker

When a team, down 3-1 in game 7 in their own barn, fails to capitalize on a 1:25 two man advantage

x 2 : When the second player’s penalty expires and he gets a breakaway and scores with 4 seconds to go

Define: Retribution

When that player is Brad Stuart

No Goal?

So here is the winner from the Wings-Oilers game last night. JDD said that he was jumping to save the original shot, and he is 6’4″, so how wasn’t it high sticking. Well Jeff, basic physics says if a puck has an upward motion, it will get higher the further it goes. Since Stuart tipped it a few feet in front of the goalie, the height of the puck where it was tipped and the height it would have been had it made it to JDD is completely different. Stupid argument.

I’m not saying that it wasn’t a high stick, I think it fit into the category of “inconclusive evidence”, and since the ref called it a goal….well…Detroit has had their fair share of those go against them this year haven’t they?
