No, but I am curious: If I am not mistaken this was the first year that ESPN restarted broadcasting the NHL(?)... how is the coverage compared to other broadcasts/networks?
I've only seen two ESPN+ exclusive games, both Stars games, and both were announced by Leah Hextall. I tried to give her a chance, but she is absolutely atrocious.
Tonight's Stars game is another ESPN+ exclusive and being announced by someone else so hopefully it's better.
Stars absolutely dummied Edmonton tonight, 4-1, held McDavid without a shot till the third period, and he only had 2 shots total in the game. Oettinger is legit, he can't be sent back down to the AHL, he's the best goalie in the entire Stars franchise.
@ElysianGuitars They sure did... I shut it off halfway through the third . Stars really putting in the work this season, gotta respect it when you don't let McDavid McDavid you.
I've only watched Avs games, and they just use the local broadcast team, who are pretty solid.
Prediction for tonight's game: Ovechkin breaks Gretzky's all-time goal record.
Doubtful… They are playing the Washington Capitals Bears. There are so many injuries, they just might have a chance.
Yes... so we will win 151-150.
Well… maybe not
I don't know... I'm starting to think Bergevin was cursed by a gypsy or something...
Told you 2 game win streaks aren't real! Oh well, try again in about a month from now.
So 5 wins in a row, 3 shutouts and only 2 goals against total in the 5 games... idiots are STILL talking smack about Jarry
I'm not saying he will continue with that level of performance or that he is going to be an elite goaltender long term as it is REALLY early in his career but my god cut the kid a break...
I'm also a bit concerned that they're going to wear Jarry out as DeSmith has not been good this season so they've only given him 3 starts
4-1 loss to Buffalo last night... Pittsburgh please destroy us (again) tonight so that this timid organization can work up the balls the make some real changes here.
Stars have won 5 of their last 6 and are on a 3 game win streak. Did not see that turnaround coming, but the biggest reason for it is Oettinger, he's leading the league in sv% and GAA and has won all 4 of his starts. He had to be pulled from the game last night after getting hit in the head, but came back to finish it out and get the win.
Pens working hard to make your goalie look like he should win the Vezina in the first
Pretty sure its the first time I see three empty net goals in a single game.
Can't say the Pens didn't tried, Allen played a hell of a game thanks to the Habs inability to provide him with a proper defense.
See you in two weeks when the Habs win again folks!
Pens had 3 empty net goals against the lightning earlier this season... but yeah that is unusual.
Allen played well and the Pens did their special "lets shoot 25 pucks on the ice against a goalie that is really good down low" thing.
Well I wasn't too far off, according to an article I've read this morning, it was the first time in the Habs history that they scored three empty netters in the same game.
In other news, the assistant GM quit during the game yesterday, rumors are saying he was interviewed for the position of GM but was told he wouldn't be chosen and decided to quit instead. Analyst are expecting something to happen with Marc Bergevin today.
