MCD with a goal today!!!

Cally with an assist!!!

So far I think Nash and Mats have been kept off the score sheet but hopefully that changes soon.

Lundy is off to a good start.

Hags got hit in the face I think. I hope he is okay.

Am I forgetting somebody?

Oh yeah Steps sat the first 2 games but I think he may have played today.

Karlsson-Lundqvist collision puts scare into Sweden
Monday, 02.17.2014 / 7:32 AM
Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

SOCHI -- Sweden has had more than its fair share of high-profile injury issues thus far at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, and it came close to yet another one Monday.

This one would have been the worst one yet.

After losing Detroit Red Wings forward Johan Franzen and Vancouver Canucks center Henrik Sedin prior to and then captain Henrik Zetterberg of the Red Wings one game into the Olympics, Sweden goalie Henrik Lundqvist was crashed into by Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson during practice Monday.

Karlsson was trying to catch Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson as he was breaking toward the net and dove, his momentum carrying him into Lundqvist and taking the New York Rangers goalie out like he was a bowling pin.

Lundqvist needed a few minutes to recover, but ultimately was alright and should be in net for Sweden's quarterfinal game on Wednesday.

"I toe-picked and dived without really thinking about what happened," Karlsson said. "But it should be fine. I think it looked a bit worse than it was. Luckily, I'm not that heavy.

"I told him I was sorry, about 500 times.''

The thought of losing their star goaltender crossed the players' minds as Lundqvist lay on the ice afterward.

"We can laugh about it because it wasn't too serious," Red Wings forward Daniel Alfredsson said. "But it gave everybody a big scare."

Sweden enters the knockout phase of the tournament as the top seed, the only team to win all three of its preliminary round games in regulation. Yet the Swedes, much like fellow gold medal candidates Canada and Russia, had their issues in group play.

Sweden was up 4-0 in its opening game against the Czech Republic, but then laid back and allowed the Czechs back in it before winning 4-2. Sweden then won 1-0 against Switzerland, the only goal the Swiss have allowed in the tournament.

In Sweden's final preliminary game Saturday, Latvia had a clean breakaway down 4-3 midway through the third period. Lundqvist was forced to make a great save on Martins Karsums, and about a minute later Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler scored to give Sweden some breathing room in a 5-3 win.

In all three cases, Sweden allowed a lesser team to hang around, something that could be deadly in an elimination game.

As the top seed, Sweden will face the winner of the Slovenia-Austria qualification round game, which should provide a relatively easy path to the semifinals.

But Alfredsson was on the Swedish team that lost to Belarus in the quarterfinals at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, so he knows better than most not to take any team lightly when your tournament life is on the line.

And in a way, the so-called trouble Sweden had in the preliminary round should prepare it for that reality in the quarterfinals.

"I don't think I need to tell them anything about that after the group games we've had," Alfredsson said. "We are going to be the favorites, no doubt about that, so it's just about balancing our energy the right way.

Looked like maybe a broken hand or something, losing Zucs for any length of time would not be good for us. Another problem is that Nash has gone back to his post concussion play of being a perimeter guy, he hasn't played well so far this olympics. I wonder is Hagelin's injury just related to his mouth or is there something else?

redwhiteandblue
02-18-2014, 01:57 PM
I have a feeling Zucc will miss a little time but he has a week for swelling in his hand to go down. Reports were he couldn't grip a stick though.

Hagelin is fine, he will be out there the rest of the way.

Hank is fine, it was a small collision but nothing that's stopping him. We will really just have to wait and see how he plays.

Nash, not sure what to think. Nothing is really clicking for Canada so keep his minutes down and get him home in one piece,

Nash looked slow so far and timid. Hope that changes when he gets back but I have a feeling after all this travel these guys are gonna be flat, especially Nash and McDonagh as they should be continuing on.

Heal him up. Let Miller come up and get a few games. Maybe he forces someone out of the lineup. He has played very well down in Hartford.

Either way though, this year we can afford to let Mats sit at this point in the season. It looks like it's gonna be 3 weeks he's out I just read.

Was this a typo, meant to read "we can't let Mats sit at this point in the season?" Mats has been the leader of the offense the past few months, by and large. I don't think we have enough cushion in the playoff race to miss a player like Mats for too long.

No, I just meant if he's going to run into injury now is better than later. Silver lining to a grey cloud, I agree he's probably our best forward this season.

The season is pretty much over for them anyway they have fallen to far back. If Vanek gets hurt they cant deal him and since he doesnt want to stay they really need to get back a big chunk for him.

Oh I can see the logic in that thinking. Me personally I'd rather have a healthy Tavares for the future without a knee injury than get anything for Vanek as a rental. I guess its just different points of view.

Thanks for the time. I hope it is shown live on NBC.

How much would someone be willing to give up to then have a shot at giving Vanek a huge deal? He's good, but honestly watching a decent amount of him over the years, other than those early years in BUF, never really struck me as a special player. Numbers look good, but I don't know, something seems missing. Maybe I'm crazy, but I wouldn't break the bank for him.

Anything happening to Taveras would be terrifying for any Islander fan, or anyone associated with the team.

Something tells me that the practice skates that Babcock was running got the guys in game shape, the first game or two he looked sluggish but after that he was moving a lot better. Nash is a much more complete player than any of us give him credit for but with guys like Hagelin, Callahan, Boyle etc we rarely use him on the PK though he probably should be.

As far as the defensive stuff goes I think that is more on Rick than the organization (or fans). There have been times he did not give a full effort to get back on defense as a Ranger. If he skated like I saw on that one shift today he would be really hard to play against and Ranger fans would really rally behind him. That was very impressive. I did not even know he still had that extra gear.

He didnt get much ice time and to be fair the Canadian team was set up for defensive play as evident by their low scoring games. Nash was excellent on their penalty kill and had some close chances, hit the post today and near fooled hank on a long shot.

Not sure if you watched all the games but everyone up here feels he made the most of his playing time. His first game wasnt his best but he got better as the tourney went on. Canada's offense was generated from the D. Go through the team stats and you will see that it was the D scoring, not Nash, not Crosby, Perry, etc. Not sure how you felt he wasn't playing well, he was singled out on Sportsnet today for being defensively responsible and generating scoring at the same time. Like I said before his first game and half he looked slow but came alive after that.

Nash also looked better and better each game and as BSI mentioned, played both ways and was very reliable in the defensive zone. Nash knew his role and did what he had to do to help the team. If they gave him first line mins, I guarantee you he would have better stats.

He was low minutes all olympics he was used as a 3rd - 4th line defensive forward, they rotated 7 forwards in their bottom 6....not cherry picking anything, you cant score from the bench. You obviously didnt even watch him play or even understand his role on the team, I dont even know why I have to discuss this it was pretty obvious to everyone else that he was playing fine after his first game for the role he had on the team. Crosby only had 1 point going into the finals. Nash had the same points as Perry, Sharp and even Kunitz who played the majority of the tourney on the first line. The team was built on defense, they were really really committed to it and it paid off for them all, Nash included.

The team was built on defense, they were really really committed to it and it paid off for them all, Nash included.

Don't waste your time telling me I didn't watch or understand Mr effing expert. You might wanna learn to agree to disagree instead of forcing your opinion on everyone. You can say it 50 times but it doesn't make it true or make me think any different. I got 2 messages since this am from people telling me to not even disagree with you because you "have to be right" maybe I should have listened.

He was low minutes all olympics he was used as a 3rd - 4th line defensive forward, they rotated 7 forwards in their bottom 6....not cherry picking anything, you cant score from the bench.

Meh...its no difference who's right. You have your opinion and I have mine but dont force yours on me and tell me to not voice mine. I could care less about who you got messages from, there's idiots everywhere on here, if you wanna be one of them be my guest.

You can never agree to disagree thats the problem. I watched a few of the games with Ryan Stewart director of pro scouting for the Blackhawks and Neil Smith. Both were shocked at how little some people we chipping in. I only said Nash as he was the one Ranger. So I wasn't just picking him out I just thought to the "Ranger board" he was the only one I needed to speak of.

Why is it that I have to agree to disagree? Why is that up to me? You are still going on about it, I never mentioned Nash in my last post at all, it was dead to me and I was done talking about it, you are continuing to push your views on me by trying to impress everyone with your "friends" views. It's a very lame attempt in trying to be right in the argument, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

You are the one who said "everyone else". 1 person. I have nobody to "impress" but I was giving an outside view from people who are plenty closer to the game then we are. But I get it you are right. My bad
