Sheary misses the net on a penalty shot in a 2-2 game with 3:00 to go.

Robin Lehner could have stopped that one.

Robin Lehner wouldn't have needed to.  As you wrote, Sheary missed the net.

It was nice to see former Sabres such as Armia, Byron, and Weber having roles in the MTL win.

It should be an absolute embarrassment that the Sabres are not a part of this.

Anyone who has been involved in any aspect of any decision involving any detail of any aspect of this team should get down on their knees and thank the gods up above that there are still fans that care.

You have failed on an epic level and we are still here.

You don’t deserve us.

The only job in pro hockey Botterill should ever be allowed to have again is as a hot dog vendor in the stands.

I wish I believed it was his fault alone.

If Carter Hutton’s eye problem had not happened we would be playing now.

But, if Covid didn't cut the season short we wouldn't be playing now.

We need a new goaltender 😇

The Canes are incredible at creating offense with the puck. They started building toward this in 2015. 

Jason and Ralph talking about how important it is that our guys are so close was/is nice, but it takes a long time to get this good at hockey, and it still feels like we haven't started down a road that will develop into something like this on the ice yet given that we are still the worst chance-generation team in the league three years running

You're kidding.

Mark Scheifele Injured pretty bad. Ouch.

Hit (if you could even call it one) didn't look bad at all, but his reaction after it sure did.  One of those cases where a skate catches wrong and a joint is asked to do something that it should.

Couldn't really tell what happened. 

 

Nathan Beaulieu helps him off. Nice guy. Winnipeg must really have a depth issue on D though.

If Boolow is starting, your D depth isn't good to say the least.

The hit on Scheifele was deliberate. His skate comes up and just misses his achilles tendon. The Jets will be lucky to win one game without Scheifele. No 1C or 2C.

Tkachuk should be banned 20 games minimum. Muarice called it a dirty, filthy, intentional hit with his skate. Look at the replay, he lifts his skate, puts it down and lifts it again. No Buff, Trouba, Chiarot and Tanev to a lesser extent makes this team not very tough. The Jets aren't built for the playoffs. Here's hoping we win the draft.

He's always been a couple of seconds behind what we are seeing at home.  Usually because he's talking about how some player grew up with a part-time job at Kohl's or whatever.

 

"Here comes Jones, over the blue line.  Here's a kid who worked through midget hockey by delivering newspapers and had great grades in high scho....

AND THE FLYERS SCORE!"

And yet, is far and away the best in the biz.

It feels like Buffalo does not even have an NHL team.....very strange

We haven't at this time of year for 9 years.  Welcome to Buffalo, the usual norm. Watching other teams play well, while our players are golfing or in this case "Social distancing".

To be honest it is extremely hard to tell if it was intentional or not. Tkachuk's skate raises once prior to hitting Scheifele bounces off the ice and goes up seemingly clipping Scheifele's ankle. The hardest part in judging this is due to Tkachuk's style of dirty play and thus there is an immediate bias to blame him for doing it purposely.

If you watch Karlsson's injury by the skate of Matt Cooke it looks intentional due to the combination of his far longer list of offenses but also because it looks like he purposely was trying to injure Karlsson by at very least causing him to twist his knee since Cooke's leg seems to go way over for no seeming reason.

 

On the other hand

It doesn't seems as if Tkachuk's was purposely aiming to to clip the ankle and it just occurred due to the ricochet off the ice. He does steer his skate into a stopping motion but his momentum makes it hit the ice and bounce back up.  That being said, he may just be much better at the whole "accidentally on purpose" thing than Cooke ever was.
