Malkin in your mouth

albeit, in a loss.

My first reaction was that Carey Price's whines were justified. A further look into the NHL rule book shows they are not. There is a little-known codicil in the Faber College constitution which allows the "spin-o-rama" in the Shootout. Yes...the NHL rule book actually lists the "spin-o-rama" as a legal move:
"The spin-o-rama type move where the player completes a 360° turn as he approaches the goal, shall be permitted as this involves continuous motion."
Malkin's move was a continuous motion. Carey Price can shut his yapper. Damn. A sweep over the Habs would've been nice.

On another note: P.K. Subban must be Exhibit A for those (including me) wanting to abolish the instigator rule. He's the toughest player in the league, right to the point where he turtles. Yeah...Matt Cooke is also an exhibit. But at least he's tried to straighten out. Subban just continues to cheap shot and slew foot with complete impunity from Sheriff Shanahan.

The Empties Crushed bounty has been placed: A hundred bucks of my own money for the first of my guys who really nails that creep.

Final Note: Montreal's PP is 30th in the NHL.  Note to Randy Cunneyworth: may wanna rethink the strategy of sending a forward out on your PP who hasn't scored a goal in a flipping YEAR.  Here's looking at you Scott Gomez.
