Now, comes the time for Pominville, Hecht and Kotalik to step up. The other guys did it just by playing and it was a nice surprise, however, we must need these guys to step up.

But the show must go on... and we'll see what these guys are made out of.
Exactly. There's absolutely no reason to throw in the towel because one player (yes, he's a very good player) is hurt. There are tons of other guys on this team. They play as a team and win as a team. Time for a few of these guys to step up.

I see absolutely no reason why this team can't continue to climb in the rankings. Saying they don't have Vanek is a cop out. There's millions of dollars worth of NHL caliber players on this hockey team.

I fully expect them to come to play Wednesday.
