i noticed that mike card was making alot of mistakes..... rookie mistakes. its not like thw qhole team did alot better but it juss seemed that he was standing out. did anyone else notice this or any other players playing exceptionlly bad or good? and dont state the obvious and mention kelly. tonight wasnt his night
I think Spurgeon had a good night last night, possibly the best forward out there. I remember a great turnover he caused on the pk.
On my Christmas list: Bodie gaining weight, and the sight of Lindlof fighting to be erased from my memory.
what was with the dancing? ive never seen i worse fight in my life. I hope i will never see that again.
I have no clue what was with kelly? 3 goals in 6 shots? thats going to drop his stats. aw well. they're goign to go and kick some prairie butt. They need to make up for that game. Everyone deserves a bad game, and they all used that excuse up.
None of the Rockets Did Well Last Game. Coogs totally deserved the W. (Shea Weber, 3rd Star? Why?) None of the Rockets put out the effort they needed to but it was a chance for some other guys to step up which I think happened.
Players who Played OK: Spurgeon, Bodie, Card, Gorges, Comeau, Yeomans, Mosienko, Palin, Paddock.
But again, none of the players played to their potential. (Yeomans did exceptionally well, considering they were down 3-1 and everyone in front fo him basically gave up and started dropping the gloves.)
but I do go to and watch all the home games. I just can't see how anyone could say Card had an ok game against the Cougs. Let's remember the game..#1 Card makes brutal error on power play - result short handed break-away goal (first SH goal against of the year)...#2 Card and his partner Cumiskey on ice (with entire 4th line) for the first and third goals.. So there you have it Card was responsible for the SH goal and also he was out there not doing much for 2 other goals...
Just one other note .. I don't understand why Habi puts out our 5th and 6th D-men with our 4th line so much.. I understand that our top 4 D-men need the rest .. however I think he could mix up the d-pairings when the 4th line is out there. I have been noting for the last 3 home games and Habi averages 12 shifts per game with 4th line and 5,6 Dmen, this is often the cause for poor play in our zone and or goals against ...
Yes, on the shorthanded goal Card did miss play the puck at the blue line which resulted in a sh goal. On the other two goals that he was on the ice for he did in fact take his man out and it was someone else who didn't have their man which then scored. He was on the ice but wasen't directly to fault for the other 2 goals.
Fans turn on Kelly like Vancouver fans turn on Cloutier. Yes, his defence has alot to do with it, but that's not the only reason he holds these records.
P.S. I'd like to see the guys who think they are fans that sit behind me try to do what Kelly does night in and night out. Yeah try getting across the crease when you are as big as Santa. It's hard to hold my tongue, but cursing wouldn't be very feminine now would it.
people turn on kelly, he has one bad game and people start doubting his talents, theres many players on the rockets that have had more than their share of off games. it seems goalies qare the easiest to blame. skeptics can say what they want but records and stats dont lie. kelly stands up tall and makes the plays when he needs to. He didn't do that last night but at least he did it now instead of playoffs?
