hey i want in on the next one. we never finish the 08 tourney =/
Watti, I messaged you on Live, but let me know (preferably via Live) when you'll be available Friday. As I said, insomnia haunts me so I'm not sure when I'll wake up, but sometime in the afternoon would be ideal. I'm looking forward to it.
DieAvsDie had a nice first goal in the 1st period when Lecavalier got the pass in the slot and fired in a one timer.Code:Here are the official results of your NHL 09 game.

The 2nd goal was quite pathetic (in my point of view). Garon had just stopped a shot. I had two defenders in front of him, I pressed the right trigger button to play the puck. The puck hit my defenseman and went in the net. He didn't get checked by DieAvsDie either, so that was weird for sure.
In the 2nd period with like 11 minutes left (or so), it said I lost connection with my opponent. DieAvsDie told me it might have been him because he is on a wireless connection. The e-mail results does say that I lost 2-0 though.
We moved onto Game 2, and we got disconnected again after like 8-9 minutes played in the 1st period with the score 0-0.Code:Here are the official results of your NHL 09 game.

We'll try Game 2 another time. That's all for now! Good game!

Well, Watti swept me. Game 2 was just like Game 1 as far as a dead-even defensive battle, up until the last 5 minutes. He had killed 2 penalties already. I went on a 3rd power play, hoping to score a goal to take the lead, but Watti got a shorthanded goal followed by another with 5 seconds remaining in my power play. Not cheap stuff either. He just beat me defensively, broke loose, and beat my goalie.
Game 2 Final: Canucks 2, Penguins 0
Vancouver wins series 2-0
Great game, man. Like I said in my message on Live, hopefully we can get in a friendly rematch once I get some practice. And any other tournaments or other such things you set up, I'll be sure to join. Good luck the rest of the way.
This series shouldn't have been a sweep. Matt's a great opponent, extremely tough to get any quality shots off. Fleury did stand on his head through the first two periods, stopping a few chance breakaways, but it was largely a defensive stalemate yet again. And then in the 3rd, I was in a bit of hot water due to some stupid penalties, but managed to squeak a couple short handed goals in to take the series.Code:Result: Vancouver CanucksŪ 2 at Pittsburgh PenguinsŪ 0 Game Mode: [Versus] Shootout Online Team Play Online League Clubs Game Type: Ranked [Unranked] Completed game: [Yes] No Away Team: Jotunsynthesis - LVL 6 Home Team: X Matt Young X - LVL 1 Stats Away Home ============================================================= Team Vancouver CanucksŪ Pittsburgh PenguinsŪ Score 2 0 Shots 15 20 Hits 40 31 Penalty Minutes 06:00 00:00 Power Play Goals 0 0 Power Play Opport. 0 3 Faceoffs Won 6 13 Breakaways 1/2 0/0 One Timers 0/13 0/0 Passing 76/114 119/163 Penalty Shots 0/0 0/0 Blocked Shots 11 6
Great games, Matt!
And now for the press bits.
Pittsburgh, PA (Los Angeles Times) - Pittsburgh netminder Marc-Andre Fleury shows his frustration after Vancouver's Jannik Hansen buried a short-handed breakaway to carry the Canucks past the Penguins 2 games to none. Sidney Crosby was unavailable for comment.
Series MVP: Roberto Luongo - 40 shots on goal, 0 goals allowed.

Reminder: Remember to check the first post of this thread for the updated tournament tree. Each time results are posted I go back and edit it.
And one other thing.... I'm a bit skeptical about the stats that are emailed after the games. It says I was 0/13 on my one-timers and 2/15 on my shots on goal, meaning my only two non-one timers were my 2 goals, but that's not true. I had at least 2 breakaways where I was stoned by Fleury (it only gives me credit for 2 total), and a couple times where I skated in front of the net and tried to go 5-hole. Those weren't one-timers...
