"Defenders could stay just close enough, within arm's length or stick-length, so that if necessary they could reach out and tug just a little, hold back just a little. Not quite enough for a penalty, it seemed; entirely enough to do the job. It didn't seem like much, just more borderline infractions in a game already heavily laden with them. It was the beginning of what years later in epidemic form became known as 'obstruction'."

>>Ken Dryden, in an added chapter to the 20th anniversary edition of his book, The Game

This is today's in-game thread. Loud cheers. High-pitch, youthful cheers. And a let's-go-Islanders, please. If you haven't heard, Scott Gordon is starting Rick DiPietro again, wanting to give him the two games in three days test.

This game is also streamed on Yahoo.
