I would have never guessed that sentence would ever been typed.
Why, the kid has been playing great all year. Very smart, determined player with a lot of tools.
Here's my review.
Great team effort. Obviously Mason was the star but ALL the D played well. Well done. Kings had pressure, but not a lot of point blank scoring chances.
Also a good game for all 4 forward lines vs. a team that plays tight D, tackling and hooking everything in sight.
Rinaldo with another killer check that drew a retaliatory penalty. Great to have so much speed and size on the 4th line.
Everyone whines about the contracts, but Vinnie showed his class on the first goal. Just a great play. Same with Streit on the clincher. Poise to keep it in and a great pass by Hartnell after a deft Simmonds touch.
Luke Schenn and Gus played so well again together. And Meszaros played well too. That's the advantage of being able to throw him in a key road game instead of Manning or Lauridsen.... We won without Kimmo.
They had a rough patch, then blew out Detroit, and played two very solid, hard fought games vs. the Ducks and Kings. It bodes well. Need to regroup and play another good game vs. the Sharks.
They've proven they can play with good teams, we'll see if they can sustain it. You can't get outshot like that every night.
