It goes to show it doesn't matter what players are thrown together. As pros they come in to get the job done and our D is managing to win. It all starts with our forwards staying strong and fresh in all 3 zones. Defense can be purely backup if the forwards are playing like they did against Min. All the forwards had swagger. Who cares who's on D if we get a win. Kindl is a badass in my opinion. He is focused, scary intense. On one shift he ripped 2 guys over in the corner (1 twice). Had one terrible flub giveaway but got back, broke up the play and out. His successful plays far outweigh a couple mistakes.

There were times the Wings were whipping the puck around passing with serious power. It felt like the same style as the Wings through the last years. With Datsyuk, Zetter, and I dare say Fil leading this team I remain confident.

I couldn't imagine the hockey could be any better than last year but I think there is a slight increase in speed, strength, quickness, etc. that even the goalies are unprepared for. May be I'm trippin though. To increase the offense we'll be seeing more penalties so I guess we'll have to get used to the pace of special team match -ups. I feel like there is more entertainment and offense for the fans already this season without the strict officiating, blah.

When you'r high you're high. 4 games in we got a solid win, there was no way we could lose that game. 1 day off and back at it. I feel A LOT better meeting Chicago on Sunday. See you in chi-town!
