I am not looking for 10-9 games...2-1 is ok for me and indicates that goaltending is good. It's quality of the game I am looking for.
jin : My favourite team on the West is LA (with all these players going back and forth and because "never die" attitude) .Edmonton and Vancouver are another two teams I enjoy to watch the most.
I didn't see the game so I don't know, but if you say the teams played good on the defensive side of the puck(ie the forwards were backchecking, the defensemen weren't getting caught out of position) then yeah you can play a fast paced attack oriented game. Some of the better teams in the league do play this way, like Ottawa and New Jersey. The Devils get a bad rep as people feel they are passive offensively; they are not, and if you look at the shot total stats every year they are top 5 which means they are attacking the opposing team. Even the likes of Don Cherry realizes this about the Devils(he mentioned it last HNIC).
