The GWG goal in that came was a weak slap shot glove side from the point by a rookie Czech defenseman (name escapes me now), that would have been an easy save for any peewee goalie.
Essensa was a Wing KILLER. He was Bryz in the early 90's - looked amazing with an awful Winnipeg team, then goes to the Wings and poo-poos all over the place. What a disappointment.
