so i didn't read any of your thread except for this page but i have a relative in the NU athletic dept and i was just told that Madigan's record vs Bentley is now 0-4-1 after tonight's 1-1 tie. Can that actually be true?

Yup, the Falcons were going for five in a row against the Huskies, but spent way too much time in the pbox tonight.

good back & forth gm.. NU should have had this one but the Bentley goalie (Argue).. very good.

We still dont have a powerplay.. and need to work on it. Coukd have put the gm away in regulation or especially OT with effective PP.
Hope no NU suspensions at end of gm as things got a bit rough.. i thought their goalie instigated it.
Well a tie is better than a L. Lets regroup & get it headed in right direction tomorrow. Go NU.

also want to add.. Filipe looked good.. Gaudette's got to get his groove back a bit & overall team forecheck looks good as well. They got to watch those drop passes on the powerplay or we'll give up some shorties galore again.

actually a tie is a tie. They are not a bad team. Their goaltending is stellar.

Any comment about the game has to include the absolutely moronic officiating. Yes. Bentley hooked, grabbed, obstructed and 90% of the calls were legit. Only two calls that I saw on NU were legit - Cockerill and ZAR's trip - which probably saved a goal - the calls on Owens and Jozifek were bush. The calls absolutely killed the flow of the game.

From where I uncomfortably sat, the goalie was the difference. IF anyone was listening or watching was their goal tipped? I think it was but they announced the shooter as the scorer. Frankly was not all that impressed with Bentley...was impressed with how NU came out flying...physical...pressing but Argue really deflated them and they came out in the 2nd pretty flat.

I'll note that the first unit was switched up with Williams and Sikura reunited with the Big Line.

Now, if he could only end his obsession with Cockerill and try Shea on the point. I've been very impressed with his play. Moves the puck well...has a good hard and, more importantly, accurate shot and takes very little chances. Cockerill played his usual insipid game of turnover and flat feet which was, of course, rewarded with even more ice time...

He missed a wide open net on a perfect deke and then feed from ZAR and had a near disastrous turnover in the 2nd and ended up in chateau bow bow for a bit, I believe. He needs to pick it up. He's a draft pick and will watched every night.

I thought that the top unit generated a lot of net buzz and shots...happy to see that they've put ZAR in front and high slot again...goalie was up to just about every task...

Their goalie took a tomhawk chop at ZAR for his shooting the puck after the buzzer. ZAR responded by knocking the mask off Argue who then rabbit punched ZAR when he was grabbed by Buchanon (sp).

Ever see this?

90% of calls against bentley were correct. But only two against nu were correct. Got it.

Excluding the end of the game.

The two calls on Owes were horrible if we're going to start calling hooking for every time defenseman ties up an opponent then hockey games are going to take longer than baseball. The call on Filipe was, as far as I could tell, for stealing the puck from the Bentley player. An element of interference is not making a play on the puck. The call on Jozifek was ridiculous...his stick was down and he tried to roll around the player to get the puck...if that's a cross-check then the defintion has been changed...

I was at the game. Were you?

..i dont think their goal was tipped.. from what i caught.. actually think Ruck was screened inadvertently by one of our defenders. Kinda just flopped/ sailed in. The call on Felipe was a non call. I think sometimes these guys need to even things up & that one.. was that.

GR8 actually has a point in terms of the larger issue of number of penalties and especially the number of marginal penalties being called. If you take a look at the box scores from around the country for the first two weeks of competition, it's apparent that significantly more penalties are being called in the three eastern conferences than are being called in the three western conferences. Something is definitely out-of-sync.

One thing I can tell you for sure is that the last people to yell at about all of the seemingly chippy calls are the referees. They have to call the games the way the leagues that employ them want them called. If they don't call them, they don't get games. Simple as that.

Can't speak to western vs eastern disparity but it has been well documented that they are cracking down even further on obstruction type penalties. Based on how things were called even last year, i don't think it was necessary but it seems they are concerned about lack of scoring and this is there way of addressing it. If i had my way, i'd start with the ridiculous goalie equipment we see these days. One thing you can't do anything about is how many coaches are obsessed with their defensive systems and are more focused on preventing a goal rather than trying to score.

Anyway, hopefully players learn from the early crackdown and refs ease up because i do not want to see this continue all year.

The problem is, and I've been in this position, is that at the end of the game I, or anyone else in stripes, want to look at the score sheet and see no more than a +/- 1.5 in PP disparity. So, you have a team like Bentley, whose game plan was to obstruct as much as possible versus a speed skill team that transitions quite well...you call 9 on Bentley and 2 on NU...? I don't think so.

no clue, dont care. Did that make you feel better asking that though? and as for your post above, are you kidding me? The zebras should ref the game so to equal the penalties?? mmmykay, what ever you say.
