I didnít catch that play live, the brief replay did look like Willy skated into Neighbors, but I didnít see the few seconds before the collision. The call was interference, considering all the garbage the league has called on Willy they owe him.

We got a call. Neighbors was basically just standing there. (Don't tell anyone)  :raspberry: :snicker:


Ok good. I was like come on man....BUT they (bally sports) made it very difficult to watch blues games (yes here in STL!!!) So alot of posters don't chime in bc, well, they cant.

Technically it was interference because the player did interfere with Wilson making a play on the puck carrier.  Even though...I think neither Wilson or the penalized guy really intended on the contact.   It's kind of BS either way, but technically correct.  (I don't like it any more than you, but its what we had here last week)
Basically the guy set a pick and it allowed his teammate to skate away from Willy.  Although I don't think it was 100% intentional.  Usually you see this called on a D man down low where he impedes a player from going down around the net to attack the other D man.
My opinion is it was an unnecessary call.  However....IF the Blue carrying the puck had gone consequently skated in, shot and scored a goal....and Willy was interfered with, then.....you should have made the call, and you can go back an make it after the fact, so.....
That penalty call doesn't bother me that much compared to about 1/2 of them these days.
FFS - HIT HIM!!!
SHOOT - THE - PUCK

Good win for the Caps.  Pretty well played.  And Oshie does look better since his return.  Patches is making that line better.  He has looked more and more solid with each game.  He is definitely contributing.  I like that line with Oshie/Strome/Patch....two skilled grinders and a decent skating center.
Maybe we should send Ovi to Oshies place in Minnesota during the all star break  :wackysmile:

And if we could just get someone to figure out Kuzy.
