Yeah Gabby needs something.

But im sick of hearing "oh, the insert team name here have done a great job shutting down Gaborik tonight"

I think that only goes so far. Gaborik can do more out there, when he started skating later in the game the chances started coming. Hes got to find a way to move around the ice and draw defenders away from other players. He cant just play his normal shark like game waiting in the weeds because he is easily shadowed or picke dup by excellent defenseman like Orpik.

If Gabby ever gets going, really going this team can really be a threat.

Another HUGE positive tonight - they won this game 4-1 on the Road in Pitt and it wasnt all about Lundqvist. Thats a very good sign and something thats starting to take place a lot more often. Lundqvist had a relatively quiet game and just did what he had to do with a solid defensive effort in front of him.
