I like winning.
Richards had a good overall game but his 1st period was average at best. He has been doing allot of "waiting" in the O zone. He does allot of standing or cruising and hoping for opportunities rather than creating them. He looks like he is favoring his left side making me think he might have an upper back stinger that he is working through. He turns a certain way before he shoots or passes and braces for contact in that same way.
I like Carters game. It is pretty simple. skate around quickly or quickly enough and look to get open so he can make the shot. Pretty simple.
I'm thinking a groin issue or sports hernia for Richards and he's playing through it. He strikes me as the type of guy that would rather work through an injury rather than shutting it down for the season. The after the season over surgery reports for NHL players is pretty staggering, it's amazing what these guys put off in order to play. That said, if MR is 100% healthy then I take everything nice I've ever said about him back.
