Not a complaint, just an observation. Would have liked the Pleks line intact to see how Sven would do with more ice time, would he continue his production, etc....?

Agree about Andrighetto. Is it just me or does anyone else feel he was put in a position not to succeed against Carolina? Weise looked out of place with Pleks and Sekac but remained on that line pretty much the whole night. Imagine the dilemma for management if Andri had potted a goal last night! Finally, Carolina's goal was all on Emelin, should never have left Skinner walk out from behind the net.... just put him into the boards and that is it.... but 74 had NO hits last night.... Good grief...

Refs made up for that with phantom call on PK.

Not a great effort but the phantom calls really don't help. Allen penalty + Markov led to 3 minutes shorthanded. Watched the Tangradi hit in slow motion, Folin sees him coming and turns his back to him, Tangradi avoids hitting him directly in the numbers and catches mostly his right shoulder. Clean hit, Folin basically decided to put his own face up against the glass, Any hit at that stage would have hurt. Seen Gally and DD get way worse. Is it my imagination or is officiating getting more pathetic with each passing year?

Cal.... Great video! Nice to attach faces to the crew here even though I am in Colombia. Also can´t help but notice the ages of HIO members which I think explains how you post also. Most of you remember the glory days and amazing hockey with virtually no commercials so coaches had to roll 4 lines. Anyone remember how great the pop-up Goodyear adds were? All without game interruption. Anyhow those days are long gone but not forgotten eh? Have a great weekend and..... GO HABS GO

Another thought on last night's game. HABS are bigger this year but not at all tougher. They dished out 15 hits last night, Allen had 5 which leaves 10 for the rest of the team. HABS are averaging 19.4 hits per game and rank 22 in the league. This is not an aggressive team, is that why they are so healthy?

Here is what Enroth had to say about officials: "...but playing against Montreal you’re not going to get a lot of calls. It is what it is..."

If that is how they (MT) want Subban to play then that contract was just plain stupid. No other word for it. Highest paid D-man in the NHL does not join the rush? WTF...... period!

Ok…. Game day finally. For the lucky ones who can be at the summit… I hope you have a great game and a not so great headache on Sunday!!! Front may have some good home remedies to suggest. I have a problem that someone out there may have the answer to: I have a Samsung S4 phone and when I open a thread all of the comments appear in oldest to newest (top to bottom) order. Anyone got a fix or is that just the way it is? On my PC it is the other way round. Thanks.....
