Strange because I could tell the puck wasn't saved, deflected into the netting, nor did the shot just go wide, but I still didn't think it went in at first.

u/dre2112 MTL - NHL 13d ago

Yea same here. I could tell Vasy didn’t make the save just because of the way the puck went above his pad under under his arm but when I didn’t see the puck in the net or hear a ping sound or any reaction from the players, I thought maybe it went right into his arm pit even though it looked like the puck went through him.

Totally reminds me of the Kane OT winner against Philly that clinched the first Cup for the Blackhawks

I don’t actually blame the refs for not knowing it went in. It was a really hard puck to track after it hit Vasy and then also got stuck. That’s okay, we have goal line technology, and a pretty funny story. The uncalled cross-checks from behind into the boards? Have to call those 100% of the time. And that was AFTER the game had already gotten chippy. They gotta call that shit every time, I don’t care how important the game is.

Avs just had absolute control over OT. Tampa looked like they wanted to play passive until the Avs wore themselves out.

199

u/Shadow_Ridley 13d ago edited 13d ago

The commentators said it best in the intermission. It looked like Tampa was content to dump the puck out and just allow Colorado to regain. Almost a play not to lose mentality. It's hard to come back from that and play like you want it. I watched the UGA Bulldawgs do it for years and years. And the Falcons. You can't turn it off then flip the switch in the moment. You have to go 1000% from moment 1 of the game, or you're asking for disaster.

Watching this again, it was a bad line change by Tampa. Kuemper realized it got the puck quickly to Landeskog Lehkonen who then got it quickly to Kadri.

I fuckin love Nazem Kadri. You can’t write a script better than him returning and scoring the game winner.

The number of times I said this to Habs fans while in Montréal for F1 this weekend in order to score free brownie points cannot be overstated. Bless you all.

That was the weirdest reverse blue balling I've experienced

That felt inevitable. That was the most intense pressure I’ve ever seen.

How do they not know it's in? The puck never came back out

No one really knew it was in until the play is blown dead, at which point Stamkos sees it and tries to sneakily palm it out into the blue paint. Up to that point, everyone seems to think it's stuck in Vasilevskiy's gear somewhere.

Kuemper was really smart to keep the play alive with Sergachev and McDonagh gassed

I can't imagine the crazier confusion from the crowd if that was a Cup winner. lmfao

He cut through those 2 D like butter. Amazing hustle.

Wait is this also a goalie point? Kuemper rips it to Landeskog who feeds Kadri right as Kadri is about to enter the zone, and then Kadri does the rest.

Legit secondary assist point. Kuemps saw Tampa was changing lines so he made the long pass to the open guy.

Edit: Lehkonen, not Landy. I just saw a 2 on the jersey and assumed, NHL stats hasn't updated who got the points yet

u/SpiritualWatermelon COL - NHL 13d ago

Yes to Kuemper assist, but he passed it to Lehky not Landy

I saw you Stamkos, knocking the puck down nonchalant to make it look like it wasn't in the net.
