The madman did it again. Risking a three-on-one, Jesse took the puck back to the blueline from the point and tinkered his way past an opponent at walking speed along the line, not even trying to cover the puck. Then he sent a weak but cunning wrist shot to the upper corner from a d-man's feet. The guy is sooo 80's.
Reportedly Niinimäki was disappointing in preseason and lucky to even get the third-line spot he now has. The first line Viitakoski (ex-CGY) - Helminen (ex-NYR) - Dahlman (ex-OTW) has been great and the second line center Marek Vorel is solid as well, so it won't be easy to get promoted.
