hockey videos and notes

For those of you that are not hockey fans i hate for you to see these videos. You think hockey is about fights. You have no respect. But for those that understand that what you are about to see is not all hockey is about, enjoy:

First is the fight from last night's game. Tootoo vs. Mayers.
The really strange part...they took their sweet time setting up to fight, and Tootoo even asked the linesmen if they could fight before going at it. Strange.
Good fight. Toots took a lot of hits, but Mayers went down first. Call this one a draw.



Second video is what will soon be known as the most embarrassing play in NHL history until someone does something similar in the playoffs. In a huge game between Edmonton and Dallas (fighting for position in the western conference), Dallas has a chance to close out the game with an empty netter and then it all goes horribly horribly wrong.

Just watch.

For the record, Dallas won in the shootout, but gave Edmonton a free point in the standings.


Lastly, The New Jersey Devils and goalie Martin Broduer just shut-out Montreal and win 3-0. Broduer made 28 saves in the effort. According to the box score, the 3 stars for the game:
  1. Brian Gionta, 2 goals (Devils)
  2. Scott Gomez, 2 assists (Devils)
  3. Chris Huet, 34 saves (Canadiens)
Now Huet may have played a great game, but how do you make the loosing goalie of a shut-out one of the three stars and NOT include the goalie that got the shut-out? Is Broduer that great that he is taken for granted that much?
