Wasnt his team winning 3-0 deep into the 3rd when it happened?


I wouldn't consider any lead safe with 10 minutes left in the 3rd period, especially against a Stanley Cup caliber team. As someone who's attended hundred of hockey games throughout my life, I've seen crazier things happen than 3-goal lead blown. At any rate, it's really not worth debating because it deserved a penalty anyway.

Yes and so therefore I propose that they do not count.

Oh, wait a minute...this just in...flukey goals count the same as "real" goals! :shock:

BTW, how many goals has Laraque scored?

Ryann, I like Laraque, but he's way too slow to play against Detroit. He just doesn't match up well against them.

He had 1 or 2 in the playoffs. Hes a lot more physical as well.

He has one, against the Rangers.

Yes, he is more physical than Hall. Have you noticed that the Pens have been out-hit during this series? Have any Red Wings been taking liberties? No, and no. The biggest advantage the Red Wings have is their team speed, and that's something that Laraque just doesn't have. It's hard to hit somebody when you can't catch them. He'd be perfect if we were still playing the Flyers or a similar team, but he's a liability against the Wings.

Took the words out of my mouth. Laraque just doesn't fit what the team needs against Detroit. That's not to say he isn't valuable...he just doesn't fit in the lineup. Scratching him is absolutely the right choice.
