To call this a draw or anything but a win for Schenn is laughable. He controled 90 percent of the scrap and was landing. Win Schenn. Not a slaughter, not a Probert-Domi esque win, a simple win in a solid tilt.
I had no problmes with Crombeen and what he did. He did earn his penalties. Iwatched the whole shift he held Giroux off the faceoff for a few seconds, stalked him around the whole shift, then in his own zone knocked Giroux over away from the puck. They were penalties. Just doing his job though.
Where I do have problem with Crombeen is when Simmonds blatantly challenged him after the puck was dropped off a faceoff he pussed out. Then Simmonds shoved Hedman after a whistle trying to stir it up and got the unsportsmanlike penalty for nothing. Still, give Crombeen some credit, he stirred the pot, played to the wya the NHL goes now where you can get away with stuff.
Simmonds being tossed was a joke.
Laviolette in a back to back, where the score was settled still skips Sestito on shifts...why? He's not out of place out there and you're just tiring your team out. On another note, Sestito really didn't look interested in fighting yesterday either.
Agree with all of this and yeah, Laviolette skipping Sestito, even after Simmonds was tossed was a JOKE. I don't know what he has against Sestito. He hits hard than anyone on the team, back checks, moves the puck, and create scoring chances. Put him in front of the net on the PP and he's guaranteed to score 10 goals. As far as him fighting goes, he's not really a Boll/Dorsett 20 fights a season player, and there's no one on the Lighting worth fighting anyway. I think he's a poor man's Lucic honestly.
