He looked great.
The Preds came out playing hard. I really didn't see much to praise Schenn on in this game. He got beat....a LOT. Frankly, we outplayed the Leafs by a lot more than the score indicated, and while I know we have the capability of playing great hockey, much of it was how bad Toronto is right now. With that said, this offense is on a different level with merely Jones and Santorelli in the lineup. Adding Sullivan could push this team in the playoffs. It is only a matter of time before Dumont starts scoring. He missed on a semi-break, he missed on a few beautiful chancees, Jones almost tipped in a goal on 3-4 different occasions.....the results aren't there so far, but that line is very dynamic.
Legwand's goal was nice. Off the rush, 2 on 2, maybe 2 on 3, but he puts it opposite side off the post and in......beautiful!
I believe spank is talking about the hit on Sully's first shift of the game. It looked like he was ready for it though. It looked worse than it probably was.
