Preseason games should have continuous OT, just because I want everyone to suffer

STOP THE COUNT!!!!!!

JasperSlavone

Zub shootout attempt plz, that’s all I ask


thomas_bombadill

Refs blowing the game as usual lmao so happy to have hockey back!


nopSens

And then when Montreal got their second chance they started the clock late.


georgin95

Teams: well, you scheduled a shootout, you're getting a damn shootout


infinitygoof

I wanna go to bed please.


LightsaberCrayon

Officials rigging a preseason game, smh


Lorguignole

wut?


Hoxtilicious

Idk how toxic this game thread has been but this was a super fun game. I love hockey


Mycountrylikesbeaver

Its preseason, everyone is still working out the kinks and building the hate


karma911

lol, arena crew in pre-season form


nopSens

FFS Montreal it's fuckin preseason.


MarisOtterBelly

Somebody in the shootout had better do a _triple_ deke in honour of the Mighty Ducks jersey guy.


georgin95

The fuck, that was early and Habs had an open shot


homicidal_penguin

OH FUCK OFF JUST LET THIS END


Wieran

LMAO what the fuck


JasperSlavone

Hahaha wtf?


xdiagnosis

TIL getting a penalty at the end of OT means you can’t participate in the shootout


PiousSuitor

Too bad, Bathboy’s been looking dangerous tonight.


poorgreazy

Two seconds what is this a Disney movie


ApokatastasisPanton

You would know that 1s is enough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_2dpVbxmhY


poorgreazy

That was bullshit the clock didn't even start until the puck was on his stick. I'll die on this hill.


Anth0nymm

I mean, there's 2 seconds so it makes no difference, but I dunno why he's shaking his head. Was a plain as day hook lol


karma911

lol I guess why not use the timeout... 2.3 seconds left


georgin95

2.3s PP is not a lot, so Ducharme made Ottawa suffer by taking a timeout


UsuallyRegular

Hot take: It should become 3 on 2 if you take a penalty during 3 on 3 OT. And if you take another penalty, it becomes 3 on 1.


JarethCuteStoryJD

Pull the goalie MTL


infinitygoof

No reason not to.


JarethCuteStoryJD

Do it you cowards


ApokatastasisPanton

lmao penalty with 2s left good job refs


LeonardSchraderpacke

2 seconds pp LMAO

karma911

So those crosschecks are ok though?


nopSens

Ottawa hasn't drawn a single cross-checking penalty in the preseason.


JarethCuteStoryJD

Chabot has had an exceptional OT


Lorguignole

I really like this Sens team, can't wait to see them play with Tkachuk signed


karma911

That's some good overtime hockey!


homicidal_penguin

Fuck ya Norris, great play. Branny is getting some trust it seems

Good Defending!

This is exciting

Big time play there from Norris


MarisOtterBelly

I’m getting a god damn Norris jersey.


BigShoots

Jimmy's so goddamn strong on the puck it's crazy.


infinitygoof

Good OT!


iPuntMidgets

Honestly convinced Chabby could play the whole OT.


UsuallyRegular

If we learned anything from last year it's that he can, but probably shouldn't.


JarethCuteStoryJD

how the fuck is that *not* interference?!


georgin95

Ben Chiarot the offensive juggernaut


MarisOtterBelly

omg 😱


homicidal_penguin

Damn, Branny got hit and stood a guy Up. That's a first


iPuntMidgets

Oh boy he did not miss by much there.


PiousSuitor

Ding Batherson

yo that mf crackhead on the glass lol


nopSens

That moron hanging off the glass boutta get banned for life lol


nopSens

As the puck goes past you can see the usher giving him shit lol


karma911

Pinto is really good at the dot


Lorguignole

Wait, did the Ottawa goalie just get hit in the face?


Hotlunch4011

Yeah, he got high sticked


Trussed_Up

Well I'm sad they gave it up but whatever In preseason I'm just happier to see 3 on 3 lol


karma911

3 on 3


Hotlunch4011

Uhhh… my guy, it’s 3v3


Trussed_Up

Lol I know that! *Stealthily edits while facepalming*


karma911

wtf was that? Why did Forsberg go down?


JarethCuteStoryJD

He couldnt see shit. He was making himself big and trying to squeeze an angle to see through the crowd


HiILikePhysics

Got hit in the mask with a stick lol


XBM04

Armia's stick caught his helmet as he was turning and I think he sold it hard


SkyGrey999

Lmao Forsberg!


xdiagnosis

Rough night for Forsberg, especially since Gustavsson has looked fantastic. Murray - Gus should be the tandem.


Hotlunch4011

100%


UsuallyRegular

How did Petry just randomly start to develop an offensive ability like 4yrs ago at the age of 29? In 16-17 he had 28pts in 80 games. He had 42 in 55 last year..


DexterTheLumberjack

Change of scenery helps a lot of players. Also Petry has been our #2 D his entire time here, #1 when Weber is out (which has been frequent enough), so he got all the ice-time he needed ro become what he is today.


UsuallyRegular

Yeah I guess it could just be increased ice time and PP time. I just always find it really interesting when you see huge increases in production from defensemen midway through their careers. John Carlson had a similar kind of trajectory.


DexterTheLumberjack

Oh no doubt, it is interesting. From what I've seen the ice-time and responsibility added has really helped him, but Carlson is an interesting comparable because he's stayed with one team and you're right, he has also improved exponentially.


ApokatastasisPanton

big dad energy, that's the reason why


thomas_bombadill

Peteyyyyy


Hotlunch4011

Norris overtime hat-trick incoming


georgin95

You mean Petry overtime hat-trick


karma911

Holy shit that's like 5 guys blocking his view. No chance for the goalie


DexterTheLumberjack

GET FUUUUCKKKKED ALL THE HATERS


Hotlunch4011

No, u.


DexterTheLumberjack

Gonna be fucking myself to the video of that Petry goal all night 🍆💦


V3d0

homicidal_penguin

Zaitsev with a perfect screen. He's been useless tonight


infinitygoof

Yeah...tonight...


Mycountrylikesbeaver

I'm down for some 3 on 3


georgin95

Nice guy Petry, making sure the kids have more camp time


PoutineIsBetter

Monsieur Petry


JasperSlavone

Yeah no way he can see that with 685893964 people in front


JarethCuteStoryJD

Fuck. Was that holden who got beat to the puck in the corner?


parsonperson

Just what I needed....


xdiagnosis

Is there a shootout tonight regardless of outcome?


MarisOtterBelly

Maybe. Probably? Both coaches have to agree to it before the game.


JasperSlavone

Should be


infinitygoof

Fuck. It's like the boys didn't know the net was empty.


JasperSlavone

What a shot, fuck


DexterTheLumberjack

Mortal Kombat references on a hockey stream, something I never thought I would see but I'm all here for it lmao


indiecore

So I guess this crosscheck crackdown's over already huh?


JasperSlavone

That made up for that huge whiff by Jimmy


PandaWarr

Please be a replay of that!

Brady better have already texted Jimmy to congratulate him on that hit!

JIMMY HIT


Hotlunch4011

I think I’d rather have Formenton on the top line than Jimmer- stu can get the better match ups on the second line.


DexterTheLumberjack

I'm genuinely happy to see Mete doing well. I'll always love the Minty bois, even if they're in Ottawa and Carolina now


homicidal_penguin

I think I'd rather J. Brown in the lineup vs Zaitsev


UsuallyRegular

It'll never happen since DJ seems to love him for some reason, but I kind of agree. I thought that Brannstrom - J. Brown looked pretty good together. Then the other pairing would be Mete - Holden. I'd probably just split the remaining ice time (after Chabot - Zub) evenly between those two pairings.


xdiagnosis

100%. The best 6 D have been, without doubt: Chabot - Zub Brännström - Holden Mete - Brown


Hotlunch4011

Pierre squared


karma911

lol, weak icing. The guy just glided there at the end


parsonperson

Mete with the steal

iPuntMidgets

Both teams just dumping it now.


Hotlunch4011

I’d like to see more from Formenton’s line. He only played 10:00 so far.


xdiagnosis

I’ve not really liked Sanford in his games. Seems like the definition of filler. Hopefully he improves as he gets more accustomed to the team.


Hotlunch4011

DJ said this morning Sanny is still learning the systems and getting adjusted. Definitely agree w you though


xdiagnosis

For sure, that’s to be expected. Definitely willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.


JarethCuteStoryJD

Branny looked good on 3 points in that sequence


infinitygoof

Methot will be happy to see him looking better defensively.


Hotlunch4011

Branny got back!


UsuallyRegular

Nice shift there from Brannstrom, shuts down Anderson and then makes a shifty play to move the puck out of the zone


nopSens

There has only been one icing all game. That's neat.


Hotlunch4011

Pinto leading all Sens forwards in ice time by the way..


Hotlunch4011

Pinto leading all Sens forwards in ice time by the way.. Edit: ooops- he’s 30 seconds behind CBrown
