Gilbert got 2assists last night(hrs before your post, you're connected to the internet right?) and played a key role in leading his team to a dramatic come from behind victory.
With 30secs left in the game a very good Gilbert shot hits the post, bounces into the crease and its an easy wide open tap in for the tying goal.
On to OT and Gilbert has the puck deep in own zone, makes a read, pass not there, he waits, rags the puck, sets up, Koivu reads play, Gilbert hits him with a fantastic long timing pass right on his blade(through coverage) and Koivu walks in on a breakaway and scores the winning goal.
Yeah Gilbert can't hit a breakout pass to save his life.
And I'd like to say thanks to Tom for helping our draft cause by engineering a Minny win!
