Sloppy win. You could tell both teams were tired. Somehow we let the Blue Jackets pepper alot of shots on Mason, despite the Blue Jackets missing a ton of key guys. Credit goes to them as they played a very solid road game.
Mason let in some soft goals but in the end made some pretty big saves to still keep us in it.
Koistinen had a fantastic game, sans his one bad defensive play which led to Boll all alone on Mason. Other then that, he had an awesome game. 1 goal, 2 assists, +3, 7 shots and almost 22 minutes of ice time.
Him and Zidlicky were in a groove tonight. Zidlicky had another good game (despite almost another costly defensive error). His pass to Tootoo for the game tying goal was great. I laughed at all the idiots who always yell shoot.
Klein had a pretty solid game as well. Smart, simple plays. Looked a bit rusty (hmm, wonder why).
Hamhuis had a pretty bad game in my opinion as he seemed a bit lost and failed to clear the puck out of the zone alot and gave the puck away alot in the neutral zone.
Still a somewhat disappointing game from our offensive lines, despite the 4 goals. Tootoo played a pretty good game. Tootoo has had a great year. Even though he was playing a bit of the old Tootoo game tonight, he still wasn't ridiculous like he has been in the past. For the most part this year, he hasn't been trying to murder people and has benefited from it. Edit: Watched the replay, his hit in the third was a bit later then I remember. Really lucky he didn't get a call there. That could have been a dangerous time to go on the PK. He has been much better this year about it though. Hopefully he sees this and realizes he got a bit lucky.
Overall a sloppy but well needed win. Right now, we'll take them anyway we can. We are still far from where we need to be.
