Good on Poo Poo!!!! Nice to see him get that 8,000 lb Gorilla of his ass. Maybe this gets him going a bit.
Great win for these boys for sure!!!!!! They needed an output like this one.
Important thing here is to have a great game Thursday against the Bruins and not come out like against the Canadians like they did after Pitt.
Nice to see Lucic get that 1st star of the game. He has been the drive on that 2nd line for 7-8 games with Eberle and him looking quite well together. RNH got a nice weird goal and maybe that gets him going on the score sheet as well.
Kassian is definitely that 3rd line but DD has shown very good in 3 of 5 games and Poo Poo looked good last night. That is a very good thing moving forward if that line can play solid
Drai got 2 assists last night ( I have no idea how he got that one on the 1st as Klef and Lucic played back and forth twice after he got it to Klef.) and on the second it was in his skates. when Maroon grabbed it. Of course I am happy he got 2 assists but I thought his game was off a bit until that 3rd when he played rather well.
Maroon was a bit laggy in the 1st but great the rest of the way.
All the D played very well and Nurse as I have said before is already a Beast when he plays smart , which seems to be a lot more regular this year.
Talbot was solid.
I will say that Dallas has absolutely no Heart after they go down early,. they looked like a totally defeated bunch after that 2nd goal. Shows how important good goaltending and D are. As both of their's are really bad.
PS Hendo needs to be sat down for 2 games at least to catch his breath. Even Letestu has looked a bit slow on that 3rd the last 2 games albeit they both looked good on the Pk last night.
Shleppy had a very strong game last night and I would sit Hendo against the Bruins, but not sure if they will. Paks would be my choice as Shleppy and Paks are bot fast skaters and both like to hit.
Wow - Mac and I have almost an identical analysis of the game - what's going on?
Yup, great to see a nice game from Pouliot - he's got it in him and if he brings that consistently down the stretch is a material plus for this team.
Lucic has been great for a few weeks now and last night was one of his best games of the year. Him and Eberle are finding a bit of chemistry. If only Nuge could get some of his offensive creativity back.
Kassian was awesome last night, once again. He is very very solid on the boards and responsible all over the ice. I like him and Pouliot, two big wingers with speed, on DD's wing.
2 assists but I didn't think Drai had a great game again last night. He got that assist as he passed the puck back to the point - it was actually a very weak pass and Klef made a nice play at the blueline.
Agreed on Maroon - can't argue with 1g and 1a and some nice creative offensive plays.
D as a group was fantastic - some wobble in Klefbom's defensive game but I thought the other 5 were very solid as a group. Nice bounce back game from Russell.
Yup, Hendo was one weak spot last night. Letestu didn't do much either but there weren't many special teams opportunities either way which is where he earns his paycheque.
Very much liked Shleppy's game - love his willingness to shoot the puck.
LOL,,,,, Ya Klef seemed a bit off after he got smoked in the throat. But still played good. Some would not have come back after that. Good on him.
Yes like I said Hendo could use a game off against Boston but Coach seems to like him in the games he figyres will be a bit rougher. I don't think Boston plays that rough style as much anymore really soi I would take the speed of Paks or even Caggiula on that 3rd.
If they are worried about a rough game even Kuwhar could be added.
