Calgary continued that play in the second and found seams in the Oil Kings D.
Then in the 3rd their D played incredible. The only Oil King that stood out was Lazar, and to some extent Foster. Everyone else was a complete non-factor.
Edit: If i were Calgary's coach the one thing that would bother me is that the Hitmen let off the gas alot in the 3rd. Their D did play great in limiting chances, but i know in the Oil Kings big wins they've had in the playoffs Laxdall will not let them let up in their play as it becomes practicing your bad habits.
Yeah, I didn't like Calgary's approach in the 3rd. You can see why they did it though. I imagine they didn't want any part of running up the score.
I found it interesting that Rask basically set the tone last night with his nice hit on Cheek. Cheek also took another big hit behind the net.
That week first goal on Driedger could have caused a lot of problems for Calgary. Good to see them bounce back.
Now hoping Oil Kings win game 4.
I want this to go 7.
