Had it been the Caps, would have been perfect.

Good news - Konecny promoted. Weal in lineup. 

Bad news - Konecny. Laughton out of position. Lindblom scratched.

I am still confused why there was no hearing at all for Haula due to the butt end to the face he gave Kopitar.  Doughty gets a game for a play where he didn't target the head (DoPS stated as much) but Haula doesn't even get a hearing where he specifically looked and targeted the head with the butt end of his stick. 

 

Generally I wouldn't think it would be a suspension however based on what they gave a suspension for this should also be.  I know that is asking way too much for DoPS to be consistent.  I should know better.

Looks like Gudas took out Coots knee when they were running different drills simultaneously. 

Can we suspend him anyway?

@JamieApody: #BREAKING Our @6abc video of @NHLFlyers star Sean Couturier going DOWN at practice today after colliding with Radko Gudas. He limps off with the trainer. Claude Giroux told me "it didn't look good." So far no update from the #Flyers #NHLPlayoffs2018 #EarnTomorrow https://twitter.com/JamieApody/status/986318648313774081/video/1

Zach Parise will miss to six to eight weeks with a broken sternum. It happened on the last or second to last shift of Game 3. Huge blow, had goals in each of the three games of series. Tyler Ennis is in

Well at least he’s trying something. Still don’t understand why he wouldn’t put Konecny back with Giroux. Although it’s pointless now that Couturier looks done. But hey we get to see Giroux and Voracek pass to each other some more and no one shoot. :thumbup:

sure I'd rather see Parise in the lineup and he's been scoring a lot lately but it's not that big of a loss.  few better around the net but he doesn't create much and other guys are capable of finishing in that spot.  they were going to need Nino, Zucker, and Coyle to step up at some point to win this series anyway.  Nino and Zucker have been invisible and Coyle has failed to finish on several grade A chances (nothing new there I guess).  this one is manageable and I was hoping to see Ennis in the lineup at some point anyway.  but none of the depth guys were coming out because Ek, Greenway, Winnik, even Foligno last game have all been good.  sure have had a lot of injuries this year, several of which were fluky plays.  weird season.

Myers is a much more significant loss and it looks like he's out as well.  speaking of, I think Boudreau should throw a fit and call for suspensions even though Parise was banged up on an innocuous play.  for shtick purposes, obviously.  Maurice has a good bit going.

interesting that the 2012 blockbuster signings will both be out of the lineup for this spot.  a little chance for some revisionist history...with like $15 mil in dead cap space of course.

Whatever makes you feel better I guess, he's been playing awesome the last couple months. I would have like to see Ennis also but going from Parise to Ennis in the playoffs is a huge loss IMO

overreaction on the name.  its really not that devastating.  he’s been good but it’s not like they can’t replace his output and they’ve been doing it for the better part of two seasons. he’s still good at doing Parise stuff around the net but he’s not some game changer especially at this point in his career.  Suter is an irreplaceable loss, this is different.

its not like Ennis is replacing that role or even those minutes, he’s just taking the lineup spot.  this is about the younger core filling that void and they’re plenty capable.

Winnipeg has better depth to begin with but Myers is the bigger loss especially when they’re a bit thin there already.

The name? Seriously? The “name” has 31 points in 36 games. This is bad news for the club whether you admit it or not. Naturally if you score 4-6 goals he won’t be missed. That is unlikely.

pretty sure I’m not calling good news.  just find it odd what people think Parise is at this point or how the Wild are currently constructed.

Yup, I said he was holding it all together. He isn’t the first, second or even third option. However, he plays the game different than everyone else on the roster. You are simply dismissing him like he doesn’t matter. I disagree.

He’s one of the leaders on the team and they are trying to claw back in this series, it’s a big loss weather you like him or not.  No one said hes the man that’s holds the team together, but he is one of the main guys 33 years old or not.

Caps have a two goal lead. Live bettors need to pile on Lumbus.

Terrible ending to the first. No 5-3 and then give up a goal. Blah. 

Ridiculously blatant cross-check to the head of Staal in the slot on a PP. Even culprit Morrissey was looking around for a call. I can’t believe Staal isn’t concussed. The refs go from not calling anything the first two game, to calling everything and then some in game three, and now this bs. C’mon man.

A huge problem the Wild has is, they will have no answer to Morrissey’s cheap shot and Byfuglien will continue to do what Byfuglien does and they don’t have anyone that can do anything about it.

He definitely could be. He didn’t look right even after getting back to the bench.

I was at the Nats game during game 1 and was watching the score just to make sure I didn't get into that mess with two games letting out at same time.
