Stars look frustrated. Lets make them pay.

Yeah...the Avs skated circles around the Stars today. Modano's lazy ass penalty was proof of that.

One thing that I liked was that when the Stars tried to get physical, and give a big hit...whether they were successful or not...the puck was headed back towards Turco.

There's still a lot of games left, so nothing's been decided, but I don't think the Avs could have had a better opening game. Especially after the lackluster end to their season.

One more thing. In Turco's defense...if he didn't make some pretty nice saves the score would've been about 9-2.

It's one game, but it was a wonderful performance. It's not so much that the Avs were great defensively, it was their continuous offensive pressure. To me, Dallas looked surprised at what the Avs brought to the table. Dallas will certainly make adjustments. I know Turco will get some of the blame but the forwards didn't help with the back-check and the defenders were swiss cheese.

People forget that the Avs were the fourth highest scoring team in the NHL. The problem all season has been the defense and inconsistent goaltending. That's what makes the Avs so dangerous, if they can tighten things up and get the goaltending, they will not be an easy out.

Dallas will look 100% better on Monday night.

Somebody asked about Wolski. Once Wolski played 10 NHL games, his contact would count agaisnt the cap. Wolski played the first 9 games with the Avs and then he was sent back to juniors. Part of it was the affect against the salary cap, the other was that Wolski needed to work on certain parts of his game. After he was snubbed by the Canadian World Junior hockey team, his coaches in Brampton put him at center and he just took off. He won four straight OHL player of the month awards.

Now that Wolski has been called up and played in his 10th game, his salary wont count against the cap, but the first year of his three year contact has been used. Therefore, he'll become a RFA after 07-08 rather then 08-09. Yet, if he continues the solid play, it'll be worth it. Make no mistake about it, Wolski is the best prospect the Avs have had in their system since Alex Tanguay.

Exactly. Outside of Adrian Dater, you'll be hard pressed to find one analyst locally or nationally who gave the Avs a chance. I'll be honest, I picked Dallas to win this series. I also thought that if the Avs had any chance, they had to split in Dallas and most importantly win that first game in Dallas. They dominated the Stars and now the ball is in their court. Dallas is the #2 seed, the pressure is on them.

Knuble gets not 1 but 2 back to back sticks to the face, starts bleeding like a stuck pig, and no call. To add insult to injury, when knuble gets repairs to his face and steps back on the ice, the refs nail knuble for high sticking a buffalo player. Knubles stick hit the Sabre in the shoulder.

I love living in Dallas and NOT being a Stars fan!

I ain't gonna say **** though, Dalals has come back and won a series before after being down.
Series sure isn't over that's for sure. Stars only had 16 shots on goal today!

---------------------------------------------------
Avs capitalize on Stars' mistakes to take first game
DALLAS (AP) -- Their lowest playoff seed in nearly 20 years. Ten losses in their last 16 regular-season games. A two-goal deficit on the road.

None of that bothered the Colorado Avalanche in Game 1 of the Western Conference playoff against favored Dallas.

Rob Blake and John-Michael Liles scored power-play goals only 2:04 apart in the second period and seventh-seeded Colorado beat the Stars 5-2 on Saturday.

"We've had four really competitive games with Dallas, and felt evenly matched," Avalanche coach Joel Quenneville said. "Some times starting on the road is not the worst-case scenario. You're a little more relaxed."

Colorado cut a 2-0 deficit in half before the end of the first period, and had three goals in the second. Rookie winger Wojtek Wolski tied the game at 2 before Blake and Liles scored.

"We felt pretty good today, and we'll feel good tomorrow," said Avs captain Joe Sakic, who had two assists to start his 12th playoff appearances. "We're pretty excited about winning, but Monday we have Game 2.

"That's a great hockey team over there," he said. "I thought they were flat. It was a bad day for them."

Jose Theodore stopped 16 shots in only his sixth game for Colorado.

For the Stars, it's already eerily similar to their last playoff series two years ago. Colorado won that first-round series in five games and twice scored five times against Dallas goalie Marty Turco.

There were plenty of problems Saturday. Three of the seven Dallas penalties came in the decisive second period.

"Work ethic, turnovers, penalties ... that sums it up," Stu Barnes said.

"The calls were made because we were out of position," said Stars captain Mike Modano, whose only two shots came in the third period. "We were chasing the puck all day long and that's not a recipe for success."

This is the Avalanche's 25th playoff series since moving to Denver in 1995 -- more than any other team. But they were 6-10 down the stretch for their lowest playoff seeding since 1987 while still in Quebec.

"I don't think it's an on-off switch," Quenneville said. "I thought we did a lot of good things with the puck. ... We had the puck a lot, particularly down in their end."

This is the fourth time in seven years the two teams have met in the playoffs. Dallas won a pair of incredible seven-game Western Conference finals in 1999 and 2000 to get to the Stanley Cup finals.

Dallas went up 2-0 Saturday when Jason Arnott slid by the net and made a backhand pass to Bill Guerin, who slammed the puck behind Theodore with 4:58 left in the first period.

That came only two minutes after a one-timer by Brenden Morrow on Dallas' third shot of the game.

But the Stars didn't hold on to that momentum very long.

"I felt really good even though we got two goals down," Theodore said. "I felt in control. We didn't panic. I knew if we could keep going the same way we were, we'd be able to get a couple of goals."

Less than two minutes after Guerin's goal, Turco was sliding to his right when Sakic pushed the puck back toward the middle. Milan Hejduk knocked it into the open net.

Another defensive mistake led to Colorado's tying goal 5 minutes into the second period. Turco was still on the side of the net after playing the puck when defenseman Jon Klemm gave it away. Jim Dowd passed the puck to Wolski and Turco couldn't get back in time.

After Blake's power-play goal, a puck through traffic that Turco didn't see until it was too late, there was only 15 more seconds of play before Colorado was on the power play again. Liles scored past a sprawling Turco, assisted by Sakic and Andrew Brunette.

Turco stopped 26 shots, but has allowed 23 goals in six playoff games against the Avalanche.

Theodore was 1-3-1 down the stretch for Colorado. The former league MVP didn't make his debut for the Avalanche until a month after coming from Montreal at the NHL trade deadline March 8 for David Aebischer, the goalie who beat Dallas in the series two years ago.

The Stars didn't make Theodore work too hard after the goals. Dallas only had four shots in the second period, and their nine in the third period matched their total before that.

"Hopefully this is a real good slap in the face for us," coach Dave Tippett said. "The level of urgency has to be turned up several octaves now."

Game notes
Dowd and Wolski assisted on Brett Clark's goal in the third period. ... Wolski is a rookie who had 128 points in 56 games in the Ontario Hockey League before being added to Colorado's playoff roster. ... Dallas had a 3-1 advantage in the season series, two of the wins coming in shootouts.

SoCal...... Are you f*cking high bro? The refs are literally trying to GIVE the game to the Sabers. Buffalo 10 power plays (including a 5 on 3) to 5 power plays for the Flyers.

Did you see the 4 power plays the refs GAVE the Sabers in the first OT? Talk about BS calls.

As far as the hit goes, it was a stone cold cheap shot. Not only was it a cheap shot, it was a charge. That p*ssy who hit Umberger took 3 -4 long strides and hit a pleyr WITHOUT the puck. Cheapshot, charging and interference all in one. Why is it legal to lower your shoulder PAD into the face of a defensless player? I'll never understand the difference between an elbow and hard plastic shoulder pads.
Now, everyone likes to comment about Philly fans. Question for you...... how'd you feel about the 2 minute standing ovation as Umberger laid motionless on the ice. Or how about the USBC arena playing the hit 10 times on the jumbotron as Umberger was being helped off the ice and the crowd going nuts? That was cool huh?

I'm on the fence about how I want this series to play out now. I already called the series as Buffalo winning in 5. Now, I'm don't even know if I'd be that upset if we lose. I want retribution. I want to see someone, anyone, on the flyers to take a 2 hander to that gutless p*ssies face who hit Umberger. I want him lying flat on a stretcher. At this point, I want him dead. I'll gladly stand and cheer as it's happening too.

Jori.... I have 2 questions for you:

1- Was I imagining it or, did that gutless punk take 3 strides from center ice to make the hit on a guy without the puck?

2- I know it's technically legal to hit with your shoulder, but, don't you think a shoulder pad made of very strong plastic is worse then an elbow? I'll never understand how the NHL does not view that as a dangerous hit. Amazing, everytime someone gets their clocked cleaned by a shoulder pad, they get hurt. Wake up NHL, before a player dies.

You can call it legal, the fact is, technically it is legal. The fact remains though, it's a chicken sh!t, cheapshot hit.

I'd have to see a replay, but I thought RJ had lost possesion of the puck a second or so before the hit and Campbell would not have been able to stop his momentum.

Clearly Campbell intended to hit RJ, but I'm not sure he expected RJ to have his head down. It was a brutal hit, and it shows how the speed of the game can create such a violent collision. I totally understand the feelings of Flyers fans.

Regarding your second question, you do make an interesting point, but you almost consider an elbow as a weapon moreso then a shoulder (even with the equipment).

I'm not Jori, but I'll answer it for you.

The hit was completely legal. Brutal, but legal. There was no head hunting involved. That's what happens in the stanley cup playoffs when you play the puck with your head down. The guy who hit him didn't take more than the 1 1/2 strides which is legal...anything more is charging. It was text book.

Point number two of this post is just completely stupid. Elbows are far more dangerous. You're only going to take a shoulder to the face if your head is down.

There was absolutely nothing chicken sh!t, or cheap about that hit. It was 100% above board. Esche was outstanding, but his team let him down.

Jori...the kid played the puck...then BOOM!!! It wasn't anywhere close to a second...he looked behind him for the pass...it hit his stick...bounced off his stick...then BLAM-O.

There were hits in the AVS/stars game today that were much more in question as far as puck possesion goes...this one was just nasty...

Now that Wolski has been called up and played in his 10th game, his salary wont count against the cap, but the first year of his three year contact has been used. Therefore, he'll become a RFA after 07-08 rather then 08-09. Yet, if he continues the solid play, it'll be worth it. Make no mistake about it, Wolski is the best prospect the Avs have had in their system since Alex Tanguay.

I thought that the Av's defense was outstanding today...aside from the two breakdowns of course. Yes they controlled the play offensively, but they did a very good job of taking the body, and blocking shots. The stars are bigger, but the AVS did not allow them to force the play. For the most part they kept everything on the perimeter. Tay-o-Door made some big saves, but he didn't have to be as on as Turco, because his defense was actually moving its feet in front of him. I don't think it's fair to discount the job the AVS defense did today. They're a big part of the reason that Theo didn't have to face many shots...they erased them before it got to that point. We all bash them when they're weak...let's give them credit when they're strong.

I completely agree that we'll see a different stars team on Monday. They were giving the AVS all sorts of space. It won't happen again. On their power plays the stars were all stationary. You could see it in real time, and it was magnified on replays. They were content just to pass the puck back and forth, and then shoot. Their 5 on 3 power play is a perfect example of this.

I don't think the stars will give Wolski so much room the rest of the series. He took some big checks in the first period, but it didn't phase him. I think the AVS as a whole can expect a lot more physicality from the stars in game two. But if they keep their heads...it won't matter. The stars are not that big, and not that skilled.

We'll see how it plays out. It won't be easy, but they're certainly in it.

After seeing the replay on TV, I'm inclined to agree. He looked down as he had the puck and to use a Pierre McGuire term...WHAMMO!

The only hit I had issue with in the Dallas game was Hagman's hit on Sakic. Not only was it stupid, but extremely dangerous considering Sakic's back was turned. Though there was plenty of stupidity to go around in that game...cough ***Steve Ott*** cough.

Saks was pissed too! That was a scary one. I'm so glad Hinote wasn't goaded into a fight with Ott. It wasn't for a lack of trying on Ott's part.

I think the officials did a good job in the AVS/stars game(although they did miss that blatant tug on Sakic's break away)...my point was there were several big hits that happened when the puck was further away than the hit in the Buffalo game. They absolutely cannot get rid of that part of playoff hockey. It will kill it. That's all.

I thought the Sakic hit could have carried a game misconduct...intent to injure...etc. Sakic was barking at the refs after that. I'll give the guy the benefit of the doubt though...you know...finishing your check and all of that.

i hate to say it but the hit was clean, it was really nice too, and that hit will be the reason that the flyers win the series, i wasnt sure if they would win before but now i am.

as for them replaying the hit on the jumbotron, i agree with hitchcock that was bush league, but i would bet that it gets replayed in philly before the games, just to get the crowd and the players going. Which is just what we need, last night was a good learning expierence, if our guys dont play physical we are screwed cuz buffalo is alot faster then us, as long as we keep hitting them, we can just pound them into submission like the little bitches that they are.

As for the refs, i have but one question, opening goal, how is it that you can hook a guy to cause a turnover right infront of the net and it be a goal not a penalty ?

Anyone tape the game so they can send it to me?

I played last night and we got killed 6-2. I did block 4 shots and got a goal though. I'm starting to think that I'm just the Definsive Foward that the Av's need. I blocked a shot with my balls yesterday. Good thing I wore a cup. I have a bruise on my inner thigh now. It went by so quick.... I'm standing in front of the net and this one guy from the Czech Republic slaps it from the blue line. I hear a thud from my cup, and I thought "did that just hit where I thought it hit." Then when I started to skate away, I felt a pain in my inner left thigh.

I absolutely mean it.

You can bet that someone will take a nasty run at Campbell. I wait with anticipation.

I think it's laughable that everyone here claims Umberger is at fault because he had his head down. He didn't have his head down. He was looking back for the pass. Campbell waited like a cat anticipating lowering his shoulder pad into Umberger's face. Campbell got the job done. He achieved what he set out to do. He ended the season of a totally defenseless player. it's all good though. I've had time to think about the hit.

Pendejo- I see no difference between a shoulder pad to the face of a player and an elbow. Both leave mountains of damage to the opposing player. I can give plenty of examples. It's one thing to go shoulder to chest, shoulder to ribs, or shoulder to shoulder. It's very damaging when you go shoulder pad to bare face.
If it was Gauthier hitting Afiniganov that way, I would have loved it. It's still a chicken sh!t, cheap shot hit though. That said, I don't think I'd be cheering as the dude laid motionless on the ice. Funny how Egirl fan is thought of as scum bags because they cheered when Michael Irvin laid motionless on the field, yet, no mention of Sobbers fans doing the same thing.

It's not a stoop. It's a reality. If you are willing to wish that type of harm on anyone's child, then you are willing to say it's okay if it happens to your own. If you can look at your own child with love and protection and never wanting to see any harm come to him, then you should be able to understand everyone else feels the same way about their child.

It's a frickin HOCKEY game for cryin' out loud. To be someone sitting on a couch watching TV and actively wishing REVENGE on someone is just beyond me. Steve Moore's family is still living with the reality of that careless statement by Philly.

If letting people get away with that kind of thinking is taking the high ground then I'm willing to grovel along in the mud.

This is the same guy cheering for Peter Forseberg's line. But he seems to forget Peter lost a spleen during a playoff game. Did he whine like a little baby? Did he need some other Av to be an enforcer and inflict harm on another player? The whole idea of that is just stupid. -- And it doesn't have to have a place in the sport.

Im sure the players feel the same. It's a game, and you take that risk when you hit the ice. It was a clean hit, it just came hard.... two players in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I dont blambe him for not trying to slow it down. It can be war out there at times.

Well, knowing what Steve Moore's life has become I can't believe Philly actually said that. -- And I don't think Todd Bertuzzi's life took any turns for the better, either.

Speaking of pain, Flyers forward R.J. Umberger spoke to the media Sunday and said he bears no ill will toward Sabres defenceman Brian Campbell for the open-ice hit in the first overtime of Game 1.



He said it was a clean hit and didn't expect a player like Campbell to lay one out of that magnitude.



Having said that, he was suffering some short-term memory loss and didn't feel he was knocked unconscious.

Dear Dish Network,

Get a clue.

What in the hell is going on with the OLN deal? Where the **** is my NHL? STFU. You cant even bring an argument. I'm so close to moving over to Direct TV over this. Beezer's so ****ing pissed he's chewing on his own tail so get off my back. The idiots that be in the NHL got together with the idiots that be at OLN and got this stupid deal together that screws hockey fans over.

Don't you know that Montana will evicerate you? STFU. Get ****ing hockey on my TV or you'll get whats coming to you. Sit down and shut up. Montana told you not to to dump OLN. Montana told you she'd ****ing make life hell for Dish Network. I'm practically in tears. This is un****ingbelievable. Montana's kittens wont stand for this. Get ****ing hockey on my tv, Dish Network! Im sick of this inbred duck hunting, bull riding shiat. STFU.
And then Dish jumps in on the act when they decide to drop OLN. Montana had OLN on that damn programming package for years, and never used it, but Montana goes to use it for the first time ever when they put hockey on, and ZING! there it goes. Remember, Montana told you this would happen when the ****ing league got greedy for money and spurned ESPN and and went with some ****ing hick network that about 100 people in the whole ****ing country watch. Hell even Beezer wont watch this shiat, but no one listened to her.

Listen you dimwits, do you people realize there are Stanley Cup final games being televised that I can't watch because of this moronic decision? Sit down and shutup.

Don't tell me the network made a "reorganizing decision". STFU.

Thanks a bunch for ruining my Stanley Cup playoff viewing. Ridiculous.

Hell of a performance today by the Avs. Had they put up more 60 minute efforts like the one we saw today during the regular season, they'd have likely been opening the playoffs at home. Where has that Avs defense been all season? They were rock solid today.

Wojtek Wolski, the pride of Poland, with 1 goal & 2 assists in his playoff debut. !Booya!

Hopefully this carries over to game 2.

Yes. Aside from the the two goals the AVS kept dallas pretty much on the perimeter. Tay-o-door made some saves, and they held the stars to 18 shots.

I hope the AVS skate as hard tomorrow night as they did yesterday...because I doubt the stars will be so stationary.

As far as the Broad Street Bullies (Bow) are concerned..... They would Fock your ass up period. Thebig difference between that day in the NHl and today is there was a mutual respect from one player to another. They would'nt take hard plastic and smash it into your face. They did that with their fists. Also, if anyone dared to make a hit like that, that player knew they would have an entire bench skating after them. The reprocutions of an irresponsible hit like that would have meant that player would actually have to defend themself like a man.
Simple as that.

Call it a clean hit all you want. That type of hit (LOWERING the shoulder pad into the jaw/face) needs to be outlawed.

If you absolutely mean you want Steve Moore retribution then so be it. Take a good look at your son. And then you can hope someday someone will pile drive his head into the ice. Breaks his neck. Causes permanent damage. But what the heck? You'll be a proud Dad for his contribution to "old style" hockey.



To wish that on anyone is beyond stupid. So let it be your son.

What Philly said was really nasty and stupid and uncalled for...but I can't believe you would stoop to something as mean as this as payback, Tred.


No biggie Sass. I looked right passed the comment. I don't get bent over personal attacks on a message board. If it got something off of Tred's chest, that's a good thing for her. She's more then welcome to vent just like I vented.
The thing that cracks me up is these so called hockey fans are sitting here saying they would feel it was a clean hit if it happened to Sakic. Nothing can be further from the truth. I'm trying to make the point that that particular hit (lowering the shoulder into a players jaw) should be banned. That's the major beef. Somehow, if it doesn't happen to an Av's player, it falls on deaf ears. They claim it's RJ's fault for "having his head down". They don't realize that RJ was doing what every player in the NHL does 10 times a game. he was looking back for the pass. He didn't have his head down, rather, he looked behind him for the pass.

Explain how you can lower your shoulder into another man's face unless the dude's head was down. Even the recipient of the hit said it was fine...he just didn't expect it from a player like Campbell. It is a player's responsibility to protect himself too. Obviously you can't prevent a cheap shot, but you can avoid a hit like Campbells, or at least take some of the force out of it by looking where the fvck you're going.

Quick...send Umberger a message, and tell him that you're right and he's wrong.

Hypothetical question...what if the Flyers do as you want and A)Send Brashear to fight Campbell, but Campbell weathers the storm. Will that satisfy your bloodlust? Or do you demand that Campbell keeps fighting until he finally gets knocked out of the game? B) They take runs at him all night, and wind up in the penatly box and lose by about 7 goals? Will that do the trick?

Right because his head was down.

And not just Avalanche fans say the hit was clean. Everyone, including other Flyers fans (and even Umberger himself), feels that Cambell's hit was brutal but within the rules.

Once again, Dimitrakos is most at fault for giving his teammate a suicide pass when he had ample time to skate the puck out of the zone himself.

I, for one, fully expect Brashear, amongst others, to come out rockin' tonight and will be disappointed if they don't. That hit by Campbell, though clean, should be seen as a challenge to the Flyers manhood. As such, they should respond in kind.

This is a "so called" hockey fan who agrees that most fans would be screaming foul if it happened to any one of their team's players. That's a lot different than wishing for Steve Moore retribution. If you call my attack personal but yours simply the remark of "real" hockey fan, well, we find all sorts of justifications for our own duplicity.

By the way Sakic did take a cheap boarding shot in the Dallas game. Yet, strangely enough, I haven't seen one of the so called blind homie Av fans calling for any additional Dallas battering.

BTW - I knew you wouldn't take it personal when Sass got alarmed. But in all honestly wishing that type of injury on someone else is bush league.

Like Bronx33 said in the post below yours...it's fine to come out fired up, and looking to take the body early...but if you lose discipline you might settle the alleged score with Campbell...while putting your team down a man consistently.

I think that the Flyers will come out taking the big hits when they are within the play. I don't think Hitchcock will allow it to get out of control. I imagine the Flyers are far more concerned with evening up the series than taking a run at Campbell...especially since the hit was clearly legit. If not...they'll lose the game. And rightfully so.

Like Bronx33 said in the post below yours...it's fine to come out fired up, and looking to take the body early...but if you lose discipline you might settle the alleged score with Campbell...while putting your team down a man consistently.

I think that the Flyers will come out taking the big hits when they are within the play. I don't think Hitchcork will allow it to get out of control. I imagine the Flyers are far more concerned with evening up the series than taking a run at Campbell...especially since the hit was clearly legit. If not...they'll lose the game. And rightfully so.


BUT id also like to add that if the game gets to be a 3 or 4 goal lead for either team, then loook out baby, remember what happened against ottawa the game after the havlat slash ? 3 face offs in a row everybody on the ice dropped the gloves, i can see that happening again, but like i said only if the game is well at hand or already gone.

Perhaps, but most likely not...unless some more shenanigans take place.

Hit 'em in the mouth (legally) and hurt 'em on the scoreboard. There's no more satisfying retribution than that.

Well, judging by what everyone here said about the hit, positioning.... acceleration, whatever, all that I have concluded is that Philly doesent know because he's never played hockey. It was a clean, brutal hit. Unfortunate that someone got hurt, and anytime you see a hit like that retribution will occur, but you NEVER try to hurt anyone out there.

Umberger took part in Philly's morning skate, and proclaimed himself ready to go, but hasn't yet been cleared by the docs (espn.com)...so it looks like he'll be ok. Saying that I bet it will be awhile before he skates across the blueline with his head down. I think everyone hopes he can play.

Also...it looks like Brashear is going to be a scratch tonight.

Because he honestly believes it was a cheap hit. From what I gather he believes that Campbell aimed his shoulder at Umberger's face.

Right now it doesn't matter...as the Flyers are getting smoked. Let's see if a melee ensues.

I didn't see the hit...I've got the Rangers/Devils game...how bad was it? Use the hit on Sakic Saturday as a bench mark. Worse? About the same?

The refs aren't going to let things get out of control. Their going to kick people out. If things get out of hand...suspensions will follow.

The Bertuzzi incident was a real black eye.

It was pretty similar to the Hagman hit on Sakic. No injury on the play but the referees made the call because the likelihood of this game getting out of hand is pretty high. Gauthier also has a rep for hitting from behind, so that might have played into it as well.

I hope the AVS are able to survive the opening barrage that the stars are going to throw at them. In games like this the first 10 minutes are huge.

I'm disappointed in a few things after two periods of play...1) At the beginning of the second period Skrastins got the old slew foot put to him, and it was a non call. They called it at the other end. They were both penalties. I guess the refs can't see everything. 2) I didn't see Blake hold morrow in real time, or during the replay. I'm not saying it didn't happen I just haven't seen it yet. 3) I'm disappointed in the way the AVS skated in the 2nd period...they're smaller than the stars but not slower.

I don't think Tay-o-door looks comfortable in the nets at all. Perhaps the goals were flukey, but he's sprawling a lot. His mechanics (what I know of them) look for sh!t. He's fighting the puck. I also thought Modano kicked the puck with his left foot not the right in real time...but I guess it didn't appear that way in the replays...in any case it was a bad penalty by Tanguay...and those end of the period goals are real bastards to overcome...

Let's hope (AVS fans...the only fans that matter on this thread)...the boys can rally and ratchet up the intensity a bit...or a lot...

I think Theo needs a sports psychologist...he's erratic in his crease...
