Well this wasn't NEARLY as bad as the non-effort in Jersey but DAMN it was still pretty bad... so I am going to put in like HALF the effort I normally put into these recaps.
Slow start. Lots of stupid penalties (some on questionable calls). Canes scored on opening power play. Period was pretty much the Bermuda Triangle of hockey. Backes somehow scored.
Two minutes in Carolina scores. Blues looked bored for 20 minutes. Vladimir Tarasenko got less Ice time then Chris "So Close" Stewart. Fuck off officials. Fuck this game.
The third period was a better effort against the tired Hurricanes. There were heavy hits, Angry Russians and some actual hockey playing happening. Goal posts were hit. NUMEROUS times. Seriously why do I even try with this shit. BLAH!
Reactions to the Game
My reaction to the first period.
When the officiating was crappy Blues fans be like:
What I imagine happened in between every period:
When the 'Canes scored the 3rd goal, in an empty net:
When the officials took fucking FOREVER to blow play dead and help a hurt Sobe:
When I realized I had to recap this shit:
The Player of the game was honestly Jaroslav Halak. The man played his fucking heart out but his team just couldn't perform in front of him. Hats off to you, Jaro.
