Going forward, change seems to afoot in the Giants secondary this offseason.
While Pegula acknowledges that replay can be helpful, he believes the officials are over-scrutinizing important plays and that changes need to be made.
Replay was developed by this league to correct obvious mistakes, Pegula said. And if you got to look at that play 30 times from five different angles, and keep looking at it, and looking at it and looking at it, you go with the call on the field. That’s what the league has been doing ever since replay started. As a matter of fact, Dean Blandino, who was the head of replay last year, said last year that was a touchdown.
Guys are working hard, Getzlaf said. We did a good tonight getting pucks to the net, scoring goals, and getting ourselves that cushion.
Anaheim, which weathered its own injury woes earlier this season, managed the rest of the period, with Vancouver’s best opportunity coming on Brock Boeser’s chance from in tight that Miller blocked with his glove before smothering the rebound.
The Ducks made it 4-0 just 20 seconds in the third as Nilsson stopped the puck at the side of his net on a dump in for Rakell to collect and feed to Getzlaf, who in turn found Vermette for his eighth.
That would be the end of Nilsson’s night, but Markstrom didn’t fare much better as Manson charged up the ice on an Anaheim change and found Grant alone in front of a porous Vancouver defense for his eighth at 7:41.
But that first pick … he’s a cancer, Collins said.
Collins didn’t mention Apple by name, but it was clear who he was talking about – Apple was the 10th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Collins has said he tried to help Apple through some personal issues, but when Apple implied that never happened, Collins got angry and had to be physically restrained from Apple, NJ.com reported.
