A Strong Powerplay

If you want to stop goons , have a strong powerplay. With a strong powerplay , whenever the goons go too far and your team scores, the goons will disappear! In The Flyers-Penguins today The Goons of Philly gave the Pens at least two powerplays where they scored. The wings used to scare the goons back to the bench. A team may Want to goon it up but against the Wings was suicide.Your thoughts

I think that's what the canucks are always hoping for. If their agitators can draw penalties from the opposing team's goons, then they almost always get punished by their high octane top line of Burrows and the Sedins. Saw bit of that game today. When I saw that it was still tied and the 3rd period almost over, I decided to go down to the garage to get something. I knew that regulation would end in a tie, and even OT. And then there'll be an exciting shootout(for some reason, I always think that the NBC sunday game will always end in a shootout). Anyway, my mistake as I saw the game was already over when I got back up.

Now I know better! About leaving a game. I actually do the same. When my team is losing by a few goals and I don't seen any jump in them, I change the channel. Occasionally I'd channel back, but most of the game I tune out, because I only get frustrated. The only time I was surprised that the canucks fought back and win the game was this new year's eve. They were trailing 0-3, so I turned it off and watch the new year's celebrations. I was surprised the following day that they won 4-3! But that was just once.

A powerplay in hockey is when a team is down a man because the player did something wrong. Let's say a hockey player is too rough wuith another player, he is called for roughing and he is taken off the ice for 2 minutes. In that two minutes , the other team is on a powerplay.
