I wouldn't say 20-25:1. But yes, the playoff games (especially in the finals) are more. But 0 is the same. I'd say usually give someone a game in the playoffs if it gets a game in the regular season. But then after that, don't give anyone 2 games unless it's a lot more than 2 in the regular season.


A one game suspension would be a 2 minute penalty

A 1-game suspension would be a 5 minute major i guess.

Also Claude Lemieux would have been suspended 20-25 games, but he was only suspended two, and that was game one or two.

He probably would've been suspended 12-18 games in the regular season, not 20-25.

Edit: If you're talking about his hit on Draper, which I assume you're talking about.

I just hope i'm not the only one who wants Sundqvist to get suspended for that hit on Grzelcyk.


He shouldn't get suspended. There was no malicious intent on the play. Yes, it was boarding and yes, the head was hit; but the hit to the head was due to the awkward way Grzelyck went into the boards.

I don't know what you're using to gauge his intent, or why it would even matter. Leave intent out of it. Whenever leagues try to do this it gets messy.
Think of it like high sticking: you're in charge of controlling your stick. You hit a guy up high you get a penalty regardless of whether it was intended or not.

I understand the argument: he had nowhere to go once Grzelcyk lost his footing. Better start factoring that into how you forecheck.
I also understand it's the playoffs and guys HAVE to hustle to pucks and all that. That's fine; just accept the consequences of your actions.

It's the only way to protect players from these devastating hits that can destroy careers and even lives after playing days are over.

Like @Bflo_Soldier said, you have to be more careful. Maybe he didn't try to do it, but he didn't try not to. He should've known it was likely that Grzelcyk would get hurt, which he did.

Sundqvist got a hearing which basically confirms he will be suspended. I think it's the right move to suspend him for a game. Normally more but it's the final so 1 game IMO.

Thoughts on the 3-0 Boston goal? Offside or not? People seem to think it was offside but I thought Edmundon knocked it into the St. Louis zone?

Thats exactly why the goal was allowed. Wouldn't have mattered anyway. Its not like that call wouldve changed the game. Blues didnt get on the plane in Boston.

That's what i'm saying. I don't think it was a bad call. Edmundson knocked it into the zone I believe.

About the Blues, I picked Boston in 6 before the series. I kinda feel like the Bruins are taking game 4 but i'll keep my prediction of Boston in 6. I'd say:

Game 4 - BOS wins 3-1
Game 5 - STL wins 4-2
Game 6 - BOS wins 5-2

This has been a really fun game to watch. Ro'R is on a mission.

What was the argument on the Clifton penalty? I didn't see anything wrong. Am i missing something or was it just the Bruins being like "it was our player so he shouldn't get a penalty"?

Maybe. You could argue that it could've been 2 penalties. Would need to see it again. Clifton definitely should have gotten a penalty but maybe Tarasenko, too, idk.

No call? How? 2-0 St. Louis on a horrible non-call. Boston made it 2-1. Will probably pull Rask for the 6th skater soon.

@Pross

I hate it when refs decide not to call penalties just because it's the 3rd period of a Stanley Cup Final game. We wan't consistency.
