How does Ribeiro get a pass at Christmas when Koivu went down ? He was quoted as saying that maybe his effort wasn't what it should have been during SK's absence . How were Bonk and Plekanec the guys called upon ? Did CJ say you 2 step up, Ribs take it easy ?
Pleks wasn't ready, Bonk was coming off his own injury and playing turtle like hockey. Ribs was next on the offensive C depth chart and he and Ryder had a particularly bad stretch.
