First, this team needs this road trip. Get away from here, get around each other, build off what you did do in the third period.
Now, about the Morrow no-goal. Here's Rule #67.6 word-for-word:
A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who bats or directs the puck with his hand into the net. A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who bats or directs the puck and it is deflected into the net off any player, goalkeeper or official. When the puck enters the net on a clear deflection off a glove, the goal shall be allowed.
Now when you see the replay, obviously Morrow's hand is moving forward because he's trying to move his stick toward the goal. So the call is correct. Dave Tippett basically said that in the postgame chat: "I would say, just about 100 percent of the time, if it's off the hand and goes in the goal, they're going to call it no goal."
Brenden, however, was not happy. He used a choice word (one I can't print, even here) to basically say Toronto messed up again. We'll wait and see if the NHL has a choice fine for him for his comments. As frustrating as that is, Morrow still has to be smart at the end of the game. Your team still has time to come back, still has time to tie it or more, and you get two minor penalties (that's seven in three games for him). Gotta keep it calm.
Marty need to shore things up, too. His pass was not a good one, and it led to an easy Colorado goal. It's hard to believe his numbers right now, to be honest.
And the Stars have to stop putting themselves in this position in the first place. The turnovers, the mishandled pucks, the 2 on 1s allowed, the power-play goals allowed have to stop. If you're up 5-2 you take Toronto calls out of the equation (usually).
We'll see how Doug Janik is. He got a broken stick flying into his face, and he took a pretty nasty cut under his left eye. He was getting stitched up after the game, and Tippett wasn't sure his status.
I still love the kids. Love, love, love the kids. The "adults" may learn a few things from them.
Brad Richards looked more like himself in the third period.
Mike Ribeiro and Sean Avery had some pretty good chemistry together. They were creating a lot in the first period.
OK, time to move a washer/dryer. See you all in New York. Well, not literally.
