Phew, that would have stung to lose!
I see Trotz got my memo on NOT using Kariya third, to ensure that he always gets the shot. Incredibly, he's not NOT scored in a shootout, yet. Sullivan with a beauty five-hole, and Vokoun with two HUGE saves...particularly the one on Knuble. I was surprised that Gagne went with a rather weak, predictable backhander. I expected a bit more out of the league's leading goal scorer.
A bit disappointed to see Hartnell's icetime cut a bit, but they seem to play the hot hand between him and Erat...and had Erat cashed in on that insane triple deke, we'd likely have our runner-up for goal of the year. Power play missed Timonen in a bad way, but I liked what I saw from Klein on the PP late. We have GOT to get Markov back soon, there were a few scary Flyer possesions in our end, especially in the third...and he's one of the better shot blockers on the team. Who knows if Hatcher gets either of those shots through if he's in.
Anyway...great to get a huge win, 17-4-3, Detroits' lead on us is evaporating, considering the games in hand...
Kids, we could see ourselves at first overall in the West soon. As Pred303 says...
"God, I love this game"
