Vegas bench really ragging on Elias Pettersson. As he carried the puck through the neutral zone, a Vegas player mock encouraged him.

Late in the period Nick Cousins tried a wrestling move on Brock Boeser - over about 10 feet tried to hit him into the stanchion at the end of Vancouver's bench. .Legitimately one of the dirtiest things I've seen in a long time in an NHL game.
Here's the play I'm talking about. Boeser spins off to avoid it late, but this really can't be permitted to happen.

Yeah it reminds me of Ferland vs the 2015 Canucks, he got in their head, and was a distraction from the actual game of scoring goals.UWSaint wrote: ↑Mon Aug 24, 2020 6:46 am That was a poor game. Good thing the series is played in stand alone increments.
As poor as it was, while the game was a going concern, you could see the kinds of adjustments that the Canucks could make that would improve their chances. The Knights made less mistakes and capitalized on some real Canuck brain farts, in addition to tactically playing a game the Canucks didn’t adjust well to. Sharpness and smarts are on the individual players—I can’t imagine we will see so little spark and so many mistakes again. And tactics, there will be adjustments from Green and they will go away.
As for Reaves and Roussel, it’s a total distraction. So what if Reaves embarrasses Roussel and Roussel’s antics backfire. For those pining for Reaves, I admit he played a good game overall (not just with Rooster), but the guy has a long track record of inconsistent play and getting schooled. He’s a flawed bottom 6 players — most are — and not one who takes over.
That’s not to say he can’t have good games, he can. By the way, I thought the play of the game was when Reaves let up so as to not end Gaudette’s season. 88 became vulnerable and Reaves let up. Reaves’ game was pretty clean overall last night—the hard hits were good hockey hits and the get-a-pass-in-the playoffs stick work was all well within the norm.
It's still early. If we play like this the next 2 games, then yeah, it has been fun. I think we were a bit flat after a big emotional win vs Blues and expect a better showing for game #2.
That was a great shot. Sutts takes alot of flak on this board, but he's showing true leadership there. That's why he wears an A and that's the type of guy we want in the playoffs.
Well this guy will be fucking off for 6 years...
