Stars and Black Holes: Coyotes @ Sabres: Butt Edition!

12/23/13

From now on scoring by putting the puck in the goalie’s pants is a Mark Pysyk Hattrick.  Just the way he drew it up, I’m sure.  Butt wait, there’s more!

This game has to have the bizarrest collection of things in any game ever.  The Sabres dress 16 skaters because Flu.  Drew Stafford gets ejected for sort of elbowing Oliver Ekman-Larsson in the face.  (Which I’m fine with the penalty and if you want to punish recklessness which I’ve been advocating for this whole time, great, but given how little contact there actually was, a game misconduct seemed a bit much.)  Then this happened:

Which probably clears up a lot of confusion if you didn’t actually watch the game.  That’s what you get for (kind of) tucking in the jersey Mr. Cheating Goaltender!

Stars:

  1. Zemgus Girgensons – He continues to be a monster.  An assist, seven shots with 22 minutes for a flu-ravaged team.  Good lord.
  2. Tyler Ennis – Well that was a pretty goal.
  3. Ryan Miller – Funny how 36 saves for a depleted team is almost an after-thought.

Unsung Hero:

  • Mark Pysyk – Bizarro goal aside, he also logged big minutes (21:25) and had five shots on goal himself.

The Robert Wade Niedermayer Memorial Black Holes:

  1. Drew Stafford – Whether or not it was a cheap call aside, you can’t be doing that 1). ever, and 2). when you only have 9 forwards.
  2. None
  3. None

Unseen Goat:

  • None.
