10/24 @ Ottawa (6PM CT) - Scratchianov

Post by Troy McClure »

Gurianov got promoted, did nothing, and is now scratched.

Peterson gets his first game of the season.

I will be at this game wearing a neon Robo jersey, and a neon green cowboy hat. I am not joking.

Wedgewall starts tonight, and Otter tomorrow. I always see the back-up for these Sens games LOL.

^As long as all of our losses come when Wedgewood is in net then we can scapegoat trade him.

What to do with Gurianov? This. And I don't think playing him on the left wing is a part of the explanation.

The other interesting thing is, bringing in Peterson offers an additional option in the face-off circle. Last Saturday, Marchment took like 4 or 5 faceoffs in relief of Seguin and lost all of them.

We could paint the entrance to the plane ride home in another team's jersey colors so he refuses to go near it.

I'll get to watch this game in its entirety for the first time this season, so I'd like to go ahead and apologize now.

Even if it went in, there’s no way a camera shows it.

I think the puck is in, but none of the camera angle is conclusive enough...

This feels like a weird game. We've squandered a lot of open space out there and now a lot of the pressure is coming back around.

Since the Senators adjusted their game by waiting with three, almost four players at the blue line, the Stars have some struggle to pass this wall and organize their offense.

See I don't understand that.

Sure you should try and skate it in. Unless they stack the blue line. Then just dump it and get it back. They are not that great at covering guys. It will work and they will have to stop doing it.

Don't get just one stubborn idea in your head of strategy.

Wedgewall. That's why it's dangerous when one of your slowest guys tries the shot while in PK and missed the net, creating an odd-man rush on the other side.

I think the main problem was Ty's misplaying his man though.

Yeah, he was late and failed to block the puck.

I'd suggest playing in their zone where they didn't seem that good instead of ours where they seemed very dangerous.

I kinda thought the excessive penalties was an early fluke of this season too, but I guess that will keep going.

The reason it seemed like a fluke to me is some of these calls have seemed really shitty to me in the early season.

Wedgehole. Sucks for him, he was in Öttinger-postseason mode before that goal.

The way this team is playing in this 3rd period is like watching vomit soaking in a commode.

Yeah, it’s always tough to tell in a game or two if the penalty thing is bad luck, but they’re now on a run of taking too many.

They entered the game with the fifth most penalties taken per 60 with 5.333. With four penalties through two periods, they’re well on pace.

In terms of net penalties, the Stars are -1.38/60 minutes and next to last in the league.

Dang. Lost my satellite signal for a couple of minutes. When it resumed, they were skating and I didn’t even notice the score had changed.
