JR, I gotta call you on this one. You've been trumpeting the need for grit on Eric's wings for ages. Both of them!

On the topic of personnel, I refuse to make any more concessions for Hlavac. This guy would struggle to keep an AHL job in any other oganization, nevermind be welded into a 2nd line spot. Nedved's not playing great hockey, but for god's sake give him SOMEONE to work with. There's a host a players in Hartford ripe for a 2 or 3 game stint just to see how a little change of scenery on that line works out.

Pretty crappy game against a pretty crappy team, but they found a way to come back and win. That's 3 out of 4 points from games they were losing at one point. That's something to build on.
