WTF is this shit?

I wanted to see some photos from today's victory over Detroit. Yahoo has 30 photos up from the game, IN THE BLUES SECTION. So I'm like...cool. Only to find out that every single photo of the 30, is either a close up of a Red Wings player or a shot of a Red Wings player with the puck during the game. The focal point in every single God damn photo is of a Red Wing...AND WE WON THE (Frank) GAME!!!!

The Versus guys were saying this was a good play by Datsyuk. I see a penalty that wasn't called.

Typical. :roll:

The versus guys were having orgasms over the Wings. The tipping point for me was the helluva save Mason made on Datsyuk I think it was, that shorthanded try, and they were courteous enough to say Mason robbed him, and then for 2 or 3 minutes after kept going on and on about how it was such a great play between Datsyuk and whichever piece of shit Wing that fed him and basically saying it should have gone in and they were epically disappointed.

I thought that, too. They cheered here and there, but it was back and forth game with just slight crowd buzz. Seemed strange.

I thought the VS. guys were very balanced.

they said once during the game that they didn't allow drinks in the seating area. I think that could be part of it.

For the record, of course I'm estatic that the Blues beat Detroit. It's just not the same. I probably would be less annoyed with these Sweden games if the Blues weren't forcing me to pick another game for my season tickets because they're taking this Detroit game away.

I never heard the computer noises because I eventually had to turn the sound off. Those 3rd or 4th tier Versus announcers made the game less exciting. Very dry. I just cranked the new Alice In Chains album.

I think the album is awesome. I was somebody that was pretty against going on with Layne, but they convinced me live and on this album. Jerry Cantrell was a major force and songwriter in that band, and he is still in it...

Checking from behind.
But after reading the rule...I dunno. If McDonald saw the hit coming, it's not a penalty...if he didn't see it coming, it is indeed a penalty.
Datsyuk definitely hit him from behind, but McDonald knew it was coming since he had cut in on him.
From NHL.com:
44.1 Checking from Behind – A check from behind is a check delivered on a player who is not aware of the impending hit, therefore unable to protect or defend himself, and contact is made on the back part of the body. When a player intentionally turns his body to create contact with his back, no penalty shall be assessed.
