That Grabs breakaway goes in and this is the Isles winning.
Considering JT was "marginal" - had a couple of good shifts and chances but largely wasn't in sync. I don't think it was NJ's effective checking as much as JT being off with his timing and linemates, too many bad, low percentage passes....whatever.
The PP was terrible - and that's the game.
No need to overanalyze. The dmen minutes are fine, all teams favour their top 3-4 players and Cappy is right in the icetime distribution, those top four are the best they have and they need to be on the ice against opposing top players - period.
Why Cappy hasn't played Martinek is beyond me, but maybe he was hurting a bit, who knows.
Visnovsky will help a great deal, if he makes it.
Isles are a good team this year, better than I expected (so far, anyway).
Agreed. Not the sharpest game, but not a catastrophe either. Game was one shoulder-check-called-charging penalty away from being a 1-0 OT nail-biter. I think we'd all agree Hedberg made a few game-saving stops, too. He lets two of those in, and we're all talking about how this team's for real today.
